Phillips, Craig and Dean (Fair Trade Services)
Phillips, Craig and Dean’s second Christmas release, Hope for All the World, combines both original songs and classics for a timeless Christmas recording.
“The Christmas season trumpets one amazing message through the vocal chords of a tiny baby: hope,” says Randy Phillips.
“Hope for the hurting, hope for the alienated, hope for the empty, hope for the discouraged, hope for the purposelessness. Because of Christmas and the main character in the straw, we can be reconciled to God, freed from guilt and full of purpose.”
Hope for All the World features 11 songs, including the group’s take on traditional carols like “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Do You Hear What I Hear?” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings,” “The First Noel,” and “Jingle Bells.” Also on the CD are brand-new tracks “For All the World,” “A Night of Hope” and “God Bless Us,” among others.
The album’s single, “Born Is The King (It’s Christmas),” released in November.
