I created this list after I suggested in a sermon that listening to praise music during the week enhances our corporate worship.  A few people contacted me after that sermon and took me up on my offer to connect them to some great Christian music.  This list reflects my own personal preferences and is therefore extremely limited and won’t appeal to everyone.   Hopefully it will be helpful to some in discovering songs and artists that will help them praise the Lord during the week.
