The pop musician constantly does the reverse of what he says he's going to do in his songs and lyrics. His new album's title, Out of Silence , alludes to this strategy.

Angels and dancers enter the rear of the theater/sanctuary to the strains of a contemporary arrangement of a hymn set to music that was originally composed for a fifteenth French Franciscan requiem mass processional, O Come, O Come, Emmanuel  (SDA Hymn #115). The cross is implicit in Christ’s nativity, and the morbid solemnity (at least in the perception of Western ears) of hymns composed in predominately minor keys is counterintuitively apt for the advent season. This usage is so evocative of Eastern and near-Eastern cultures that its standard yuletide job is to assist in conjuring up images of exotic peoples and places ( We Three Kings  being a prime example of this). The procession reaches the front of the venue, where the young dancers mount the stage to exhibit both their skills and their bright smiles.

EMI Gospel's two-disc Wow Gospel Christmas compilation features 30 inspirational Christmas hymns performed by some of CCM's finest practitioners, including CeCe Winans ("Do You Hear What I Hear"), Yolanda Adams ("O Little Town of Bethlehem"), John P. Kee & the New Life Community Choir ("No Christmas Without You"), and Aaron Neville ("The First Noel"). Listeners looking for a modern gospel take on these holiday classics will find much to love here, while traditionalists should stick with the Burl Ives , Bing Crosby , and Gene Autry vinyl in their basements.
