GRAMMY award winner, and current double nominee for the upcoming 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 5, 2023, Chris Tomlin is releasing a deluxe version of his Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship Deluxe today with two additional songs, “Gloria” penned by Tomlin, Tyler Hubbard, Dave Barnes, and Corey Crowder and “Emmanuel God With Us” featuring Anne Wilson, which was an Amazon original last year.
“Christmas is my favorite time of the year… I love the traditions, Christmas lights, and most of all I love the music,” shared Chris. “I have always found it interesting that this is the only holiday to have its own genre of music… and I think it is because Christmas started with a song, with the announcement of Jesus’ birth. I am so excited to be releasing “Emmanuel: Christmas Songs Of Worship Deluxe” today.”
Tomlin’s catalog of full-length Christmas albums include: 2021’s Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship, 2015’s highly regarded Adore: Christmas Songs of Worship, and his gold-certified Glory In The Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship from 2009.
Earlier this week Chris was nominated for two GRAMMY awards, Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for “Holy Forever” from his latest record ALWAYS and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for ALWAYS. The multi-platinum, multi-award-winning and previous GRAMMY award winner Tomlin received the news while on the road for the final leg of the ‘Top 10 Worldwide Tour’ (Pollstar), the “Tomlin UNITED Tour.” In December he is partnering for a one-of-a-kind co-headline tour with MercyMe from December 1-13 on the “Chris Tomlin X MercyMe” Go to christomlin.com for all the dates.
In 2023, Chris will create an intimate concert setting as he travels across the U.S. on “The Stories Of Worship Tour.” In the unique concert experience Chris will lead the attendees in an impactful evening of worship while sharing stories about some of the most influential songs around the world.
