Chris Tomlin

Chris Tomlin is an award-winning worship artist. You have probably sung some of his songs in church. He is accredited as the contemporary artist most often sung in congregations every week (in the US at least).

When he was in 8th grade, at a camp worship service, Chris was overwhelmed by the music and Spirit of God that he ran out of service, threw himself in front of a tree, and prayed. It was there he made the decistion to follow God for the rest of his life. By the age of 14 he had written his first worship song. He started to lead worship at various camps arround his home state of Texas. In 1997 he was asked to work with the Passion Conferences. He has been working with them ever since. In 2001 he released his first album The Noise We Make. That was followed by Not To Us (2002), then Arriving (2004).

His first live album came in 2005: Live from Austin Music Hall. See the Morning, was released in 2006. In 2006 Chris Tomlin won the Male Vocalist of the Year award at the Dove Awards. In 2007 he got not only Male Vocalist of the Year, but also Artist of the Year, Worship Song of the Year for "Holy Is the Lord", Contemporary Album of the Year AND Praise & Worship Album of the Year for See the Morning. In 2008 he won Male Vocalist of the Year again and Worship Song of the Year for "How Great is our God".

In 2008 he released the album, Hello Love. Just in time for Christmas 2009, he released the Christmas album, Glory in the Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship. In 2010 he released the album, And if Our God is For Us.... and won a Grammy for that album.
