San Diego based worship leader Phil Wickham is a passionate artist with music centered around his strong faith. He produces songs glorifying God with his faith remaining at the center. As a result, he shines a light into the lives of all his listeners.
Phil was raised in a Christian home and comes from a musical family: both his dad and his brother are worship leaders. He's been releasing music since his debut album in 2003, but has actually been leading worship since age 13! Things took off in 2009 after he released his critically acclaimed album, Heaven and Earth.
Phil is the writer behind the gold-certified song, “This Is Amazing Grace,” which held the number one spot on Billboard's National Christian Audience Chart for 13 consecutive weeks. It also earned the honor of being named Billboard's 2014 No. 1 Christian Airplay Song of the year and BMI's 2015 Christian Song of the Year.
His newest single is “Battle Belongs”, which came out on September 4th.
NEW: "Battle Belongs"
So when I fight I'll fight on my knees With my hands lifted high Oh God the battle belongs to You
We praise God because we are weak, but He is strong. Instead of fighting with our fists against each other, take some advice from these lyrics. Surrender the outcome to the Lord. Lift your hands up to heaven and yield your battles, no matter their size, to Him. It might be scary to give up control, but the truth is, God has always been in control. When you recognize this, incomparable freedom takes hold of your life. The battle belongs to you, Lord!
Classic: "This Is Amazing Grace"
Who brings our chaos back into order Who makes the orphan a son and daughter The King of Glory, the King of Glory
When we feel like we don't belong, remember that God has a special seat just for us at His table in heaven. It is not a question of where we belong but in whom we belong. Stop trying to fit in the world’s mold of the “perfect” person. Instead, rest in the fact that no, we will never be perfect, but we trust in a God who is and He is going to carry us through this storm.
