5. Bryan & Katie Torwalt
Before husband and wife singer-songwriter duo Bryan and Katie Torwalt recorded their new EP, simply titled Christmas, the Jesus Culture worship band members spent months listening to holiday music to prepare. The result is a number of Christmas classics featuring the harmonies they have become known for in songs like "The Christmas Song," "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," and "Oh Come Let Us Adore Him."
The pair also remixed their song "Emmanuel (God With Us Forever)" from their 2016 album Champion, putting a holiday spin on it. The goal for the Torwalts is to see lives changed for people who listen to their record and remember the reason for the holiday season.
"The beautiful thing about Christmas time is that everything points to God and his Kingdom. The birth of Jesus is at the center, and it's incredible how our awareness of Him increases during the Christmas season, but even the acts of kindness and generosity, or emphasis on family are all in the heart of God," the pair said, according to the GMA. We hope our music brings joy in moments when people need it, and that people would become more aware of God, who is relentlessly good in the middle of it all."
