Beauty In My Praise - Amanda Janson
Beauty In My Praise is a song that serves as a reminder that God isn’t after our perfection. Our worship can be messy, broken, and flawed because, at the end of the day, He loves us as we are. Whether we worship in the valley or mountaintop seasons, there’s beauty in all of our praise.
Amanda Janson has had the dream of pursuing music since an early age. After an unfulfilling pursuit of musical theater and Broadway, she knew there was something more to music and to life. After giving her life to the Lord in 2013, Amanda began leading worship and writing songs about her faith and testimony. Music is in her DNA and she couldn’t imagine using her love for it in any other way than to serve the Lord. Her greatest desire is to release music that leads the listeners closer to Him. Amanda is a wife, mother, and a singer/songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Her debut single “In the Name of Jesus” is an anthem proclaiming the power of the name of Jesus and has been played on radio stations across the globe since its January 2022 release. Beauty In My Praise is the first single of her upcoming new EP which includes working with Grammy-nominated, Dove award-winning producer Chris Bevins. Listen here.

Stacking Stones - Bridge Stones
Bridge Worship is the worship ministry of The Bridge Church, a multi-site church based in the Greater Nashville area. They exist to bring together what has been torn apart — churches, families, neighbors, nations, and relationships with God. With a high value for collaboration, they use the power of music with the message of the gospel to bring unity to a divided world. “Stacking Stones,” is its first full-length live album. Stacking Stones sings of building a monument of all of God's goodness. It's easy to forget all God has done in our lives; this song reminds us of our testimonies and urges us to keep remembering. This 10-track Aalbum is one of thanksgiving. Listen here.
Anything Is Possible - JUDAH.
If you like rock music, this is for you. JUDAH is unapologetically authentic and straightforward, ripping through the layers of stigma and discomfort. He comes with a fresh approach that reflects his personality and style of praise and worship through music.
JUDAH. says "'Anything Is Possible' was written amidst the biggest heartbreak of my life that I was battling in private. There were nights I would spend alone not able to sleep cause my stress was too high and honestly I was coping in very unhealthy ways. The only way I know I was able to make it through was the love of God holding me and telling me in the soft quiet voice that he had me and was going to bring healing to my heart and body."
He adds, "I hope this song can illuminate hope in the darkest places of your life. And know...God wants your healing more than you ever could. If you find yourself coping in toxic ways like myself, know that God is not pointing the finger, but urging you on to healing like a best friend. And You're held in the arms of the creator of the heavens and the earth - - even when you don't feel it. Listen here
See you next week for another New Music Friday!
