In a fusion of worship, techno, and pure honesty comes Carlos Whittaker’s latest album offering Fight. Carlos, an avid blogger, worship leader, songwriter, artist, father, and adoption advocate set out on a desire to write songs about the “fight” that each person faces in their daily lives. The result has become the 10 track album.
From the opening track “New Song”, Whittaker engages listeners with lyrics simple enough to make an instant add to a worship set list but dripping with truth. The entire album echoes lyrics depicting a God who fights for us on a daily basis. Standouts include songs such as “Fight”, “Sing”, and “Love”.
The entire album is perfect for your NextGen/Youth sets and most songs in their current arrangement would add easily to the church’s modern sets. The honesty and constant reminder of God’s fight for us that Fight brings makes the album a great listen for personal worship as well.
More: Carlos is currently on tour as part of the “Give Me Jesus” tour with Building 429. When he is not touring, you can usually find him blogging away at ragamuffinsoul.com or leading Worship coaching sessions with other worship leaders across the globe.
Less: Instrumentation for the modern church may be a little tricky as many of the songs on the album rely heavily on electronica-type keys and acoustic.
