Capitol CMG artist and former frontman of the four-time GRAMMY Award-winning band Third Day, Mac Powell, has released a new original Christmas song, “Jesus Christ Is Born,” available today. Penned by Powell, the single’s lyric video can be viewed now (see below).
“The story of Jesus is not only told on Christmas morning but it is also told from the beginning of time. From Genesis to Revelation we read about how God’s Spirit spoke through the prophets and His Word to set up the greatest story ever told,” shares Mac Powell about the inspiration about his new song. “A fun fact is I was born on Christmas day, so I have always loved Christmas, the month of December, and that God sent his Son to earth for all people.”
This holiday song follows the recent release of Powell’s CCM solo debut, New Creation, which received more than one million global streams and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. His debut radio single from the album, “River of Life,” is currently in the Top 15 AC Monitored chart.
Celebrating the holiday season, Powell will join the KLOVE Christmas Tour with Casting Crowns, CAIN, Dante Bowe, and Jordan St. Cyr. Check out his website www.macpowell.com for updated dates and ticket information.
