Julie Meyer (Forerunner Music)
International House of Prayer worship leader Julie Meyer releases her first holiday album, Christmas, which includes nine Christmas favorites and three modern holiday songs written by Meyer.
Spotlighting artists such as David Brymer on “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” and labelmates Jaye Thomas and The Cry on “Little Drummer Boy,” who bring a cappella vocals to the album, a children’s choir on “The First Noel” including young people from IHOP-KC afford the album a special highlight.
“This Christmas album is a joyful collaboration with my family, my children and my friends, all of whom are amazing and skillful musicians in their own right,” Meyer says.
“It is driven by acoustic guitar threads as each song brings a memory of Christmas past and future. It is keys; it is strings; it is a little bluegrass. Yet it all flows together flawlessly because of the great storyline of Christmas.”
