The Best Christian Musicians 2020

There is so much Christian music out there today it is so hard to nail down our favorite artists or albums. Although my personal list extends much further than what is included below, I’ve had my best crack at providing what I think are 8 of the best Christian musicians 2020 on the contemporary Christian music scene right now. Here is my list. 

Lauren Daigle

Lauren Daigle has quickly climbed the ranks of the best Christian musicians 2020 around today.

Her hit songs You Say and Rescue You are just two examples of the powerhouse tracks which have pushed this worship leader from the Christian music scene to the mainstream.

Since appearing on The Ellen Show in 2018, the singer has seen immense success in the mainstream music market across the world. She features on many worship albums and writes for some of the big names in the industry, just one example being Peace Be Still which she performed with The Belonging Co. 

Often compared to Adele, Daigle is one of the best Christian singers on the scene. 

For King & Country

For King & Country have been writing Christian music hits for over a decade now, with tracks like Crave and Joy displaying their musical prowess.

Whether it’s the powerful vocals or the emotional connection of their lyrics, there is something for everyone in For King & Country’s music.

The brothers Luke and Joel from Australia have experimented with their sound since the band’s genesis playing around with genre and style and it seems they have found a home in their latest release Burn the Ships. 

Their success and relatability definitely earn them a spot as one of the best Christian singers of our time.

Kanye West

Yeezy is a controversial but necessary inclusion to this list. Some might think Kanye and think Gold Digger but more recently he has been on the public stage for his conversion to Christianity.

His 2019 release Jesus is King marked his transition from superficial to sacrificial, laying down lines about the life-changing impact Jesus has had on his life.

Despite his reputation and lifestyle, Jesus is King saw many fans reached with a gospel message that perhaps wouldn’t have encountered it otherwise. From a musical point of view, Jesus is King offers some of the most cutting-edge, masterful sampling ever heard on a Christian album.

That is why Kanye has earned himself a place as one of the best Christian musicians 2020 out there today. 

Hillsong United

Elevation Worship

Under the megachurch leadership of Steven Furtick, Elevation Worship have blasted the worship scene wide open in recent years.

Starting really with the release of Here as in Heaven, and continuing right up until their latest release Graves into Gardens, Elevation Worship have changed the nature of popular worship music.

For me, the group’s best work comes in the forms of their Elevation Collective and Paradoxology projects. On Elevation Collective, the group goes above and beyond genre to produce a gospel-inspired, neo-rock album which takes their original hits and lifts them to another level.

Nobody else is producing albums of such high quality both on the scales of production value and musicality. This is seen again in Paradoxology as their expert use of sampling and production soars above the competition.  

“The best Christian singer is one that connects to the heart of humanity whilst at the same time, communicates theological truths.” 

Hillsong Worship

If we mention Hillsong United, we have to include their older sibling Hillsong Worship.

Whilst Hillsong United have been bending boundaries to push forward into what’s next for the alternative Christian music scene, Hillsong Worship have really been the rock of popular Christian worship.

Whilst many criticize the group for being a part of the larger Hillsong church, bringing up issues of fame and fortune, it is no easy task to produce music which encompasses a wide range of musical preferences.

The Church is made up of people from all walks of life and with all kinds of musical preferences which speaks volumes to the way Hillsong Worship has managed to provide churches worldwide with music that is both easy to sing, and theologically accurate (most of the time). 

Housefires

With names like Pat Barret and Kirby Kaple becoming more known with every release, Housefires have stumbled upon unexpected success in the mainstream worship scene.

Their raw, honest, and vulnerable worship songs have touched the hearts of many worshippers across the world with their hit Good Good Father pricking up the ears of big players such as Bethel Music and Chris Tomlin.

Their simple, memorable melodies get stuck in your head and you can’t help but sing throughout the whole week what you heard in worship on Sunday. With every album, Housefires continue to secure their place as one of the best Christian singers today.
