True to the Royal Tailor style, it will encourage you and make you want to shake off everything that keeps you from moving in the freedom we have in Christ.
2) Candi Staton - You Got The Love
2. "All About That Christ"
According to a report in The Sun , Justin Bieber is recording a religious concept album. The pop star is said to be on the lookout for songs with a Christian message after reconnecting with his faith through the Pentecostal megachurch Hillsong Church. The inference seems to be that pop songs with a religious theme are automatically awful or, at least, don't fit in the charts. The devil, as they say, has all the best tunes. One of the most insistent riffs in rock is married to a lyric about a messianic figure recruiting disciples. The song came to Kravitz in a flash of inspiration - he recalls scribbling the lyrics down on a brown paper bag - but it reflects his real-life faith. The star has a tattoo on his back which reads "My heart belongs to Jesus", and he once called Christ "the ultimate rock star". Disco diva Candi Staton recorded You Got The Love in the s after turning her back on secular music and devoting herself to the church. Bizarrely, the song originally featured in a video about the world's fattest man and his endeavour to lose weight.

Although comparing the devil to a "pile of poo" is right up there, too. Whoa, whoa, whoa. You know lying is a sin, right? You've got Jesus' number? This isn't the most viewed YouTube video of all time, but we have a feeling it's just because its time has not yet come. Our favorite part of this video is the credits. Which woman was "Professional Mom? Is it too soon for another "Single Ladies" cover? It's never too soon!
Some say it's 'reclaiming pop culture for Jesus'. So fire up the chart show theme music, holy pop-pickers, as George Luke counts down the 10 best or worst Christian remakes of pop hits. Since becoming a Christian, Nigell has devoted his talents to recording Soca-flavoured Gospel songs. I wonder what Mr Green said when he heard this? Replacing 'baby' with 'Jesus' is one thing, but replacing 'bottoms' with 'Bibles'?!? Takes all sorts, I suppose.
