Ready for the latest roundup of happenings in the Christian musicverse?

Christian Music/Entertainment News (8)

1. Sidewalk Prophets member Ben McDonald stands out with his blue glasses. He says they garner a lot of comments. But Ben says more Californians comment on his blue glasses than in any other place. Ben says as many as one in ten residents of California comment "I like your blue glasses."

2. Robert Louis Stevenson's iconic story The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has become a favorite among artists recently. Both Jimmy Needham and Jonathan Thulin have a song titled "Jekyll & Hyde," which of course focus on the dual nature of us human beings.

3. The guys of for KING & COUNTRY took a break from their "You Matter: The Tour" to go on Winter Jam, but now that's over, they're heading back out. Their first stop on the Spring run? Yankton, South Dakota on April 29th. Yankton, of course, is home to a historic college that has been converted to a federal prison!

4. Matthew West is up to something. The singer-songwriter says he's working on a major project that will encompass the fan-submitted stories of the past three records. Could it be a book? A movie? A puppet show? Matthew promises more details soon.

5. JJ Heller recently typed a sentence she never thought she would: "My new music video features this cute little alien." She posted an image of a cute animated little green person. No idea what it's for, but with JJ, it's sure to be adorable.

6. Hillsong United's song "Oceans" has been pretty popular lately, but it just got a major shot in the arm with the song being featured on The Voice. Contestant Deanna Johnson nailed it, and people have pushed her rendition of the worship song to No. 1 on the iTunes Christian chart!

7. For their new "Flawless" music video, MercyMe used a whole lotta paint to illustrate the fact that despite our stains, through Jesus, we're made clean and spotless. It must have been a ridiculously fun and messy video shoot!

Quotes (3)

2. "The struggle is always part of the story." - tobyMac

3. "You cannot take a day off morally, and remain moral, neither can you take a day of spiritually and remain spiritual." - Ryan Stevenson
