Best Of 2013 – #14

GVToday, the best of 2013 announces the album and recorded song ranked 14th among the best in Southern Gospel music for the year.

Consistency is the name of the game for the artist that has the album ranked 14th for 2013.  Greater Vision has brought Southern Gospel listeners soaring male trio harmonies/arrangements now for over 20 years.

For All He’s Done is the album Greater Vision provided listeners in 2013.  With the one-two punch of Rodney Griffin and Chris Allman penning nearly all of the group’s material, the strength of song selection is what allows For All He’s Done a place among the year’s best.

Personal favorites from this recording include:  “Looking For The Grace”, “The Blood Hasn’t Ever Changed”, “Come Unto Me”, “For All He’s Done”, “Preacher Tell Me Like It Is” and “This Is Mercy”.

 

Gordon MoteI announced several days ago that Gordon Mote had one of the best albums of 2013 (#17) with All Things New.  The strong selection of songs made this album a must listen and the one song that stood out above all others was “Faith Like That”.

Gordon made a wise choice selecting this as the first single from All Things New.  “Faith Like That” is track #2 on the 2013 release and tells the story of a gentlemen talking about the premature death of his young son.  I don’t know the full story behind the song, but I wonder if the songwriters found the story to the song in the tragedy that happened at the elementary school in Connecticut.

Gordon conveys the message with sincerity.  The listener is hard pressed to not be touched by the message in the song.

Here is a YouTube clip (published by gospelpianist88) of Gordon performing the #14 top recorded song of 2013, “Faith Like That”.  Enjoy!

  1. It’s interesting that Chris Allman’s crooked tie would make it past Daywind and GV. Looking For The Grace sounded so much like a lot of what they’ve put out that it didn’t make me want to hear the rest of the disc.
