Discovery of new music and artists is a key part of what the Catholic Playlist show is all about. Missing a show means you'll fall behind in discovering great new Christian music that you can share with friends and family. Sometimes all it takes is one song to help someone dig deeper in their faith, or awaken a dormant faith, or just give a little inspiration and encouragement in their day.
This week we're pleased to have new music and a new artist in the Catholic Playlist. First, Ben Walther released his second album titled 'Ablaze', a 5 song collection that exhorts us to become a light in the darkness. In fact the title track, which leads off the second segment of the show, does just that with this refrain:
“Let’s set the world on fire, let’s raise his banner higher.”
Following that debut we have a new single to share from Andrew Laubacher (a.k.a ALOB) and Emily Wilson titled "Mercy Wins". A-Lob is new to the Catholic Playlist but not new to the Catholic music scene as he's collaborated and worked with many Catholic artists like Connor Flanagan, Katy Blythe, Francis Cabildo, and now Emily Wilson. "Mercy Wins" was written by Emily and Andrew and they "hope this song inspires all to love God more and accept the Mercy that is so freely given to us - His mercy that conquers all."
