Best Of 2013 – #4

EnglishI trust everyone had a wonderful Christmas day.  Whatever your plans are for this day after Christmas, thanks for stopping by and looking at the Southern Gospel album and recorded song ranked 4th among the best of 2013.

Michael English released one of the best albums of his solo career in 2013 with Some People Change.  This was the most Southern Gospel sounding solo album in Michael’s discography.  Jay DeMarcus took producing duties for Some People Change.

Michael happens to be the third solo artist to have one of ten best albums of 2013 in Southern Gospel music.  Michael covers the spectrum in terms styles on Some People Change.  Listeners are treated to progressive Southern Gospel, country, blues and even some pop sounds to make for an enjoyable listen.

Some People Change also contains one of the most thought-provoking, real songs recorded all year; “Stubborn”.

Personal favorites from this recording include:  “Stubborn”, “Waking Up The Dawn”, “Come To The River”, “On That Great Day”, “Some People Change” and “I Ain’t Giving Up On Jesus”.


FreemansAs we near the top of my annual count down, one of the most played songs in my iPod this year lands at #4 among the best recorded songs of 2013.

I already named the Freemans 2013 album, Voice In The Desert, one of the top twenty albums of the year.  Track #1, which also happens to be the title track, is the song that finds a home at #4 among the best recorded songs in Southern Gospel music this year.

Lee Black has become one of the leading songwriters in Southern Gospel music.  He teams up with Jason Cox and Kenna Turner West to pen this song which talks about John the Baptist and his call to be a voice in the desert.  It relays that even today there needs to be a voice in the desert to get the message out.

Here is a YouTube fan made video (published by jontomsun) of the Freemans singing the #4 top recorded song of 2013, “Voice In The Desert”.  Enjoy!
