We asked, you answered: What artists, albums, music and songs are you playing at your conferences right now?
"At my client conferences, I have heard everything and anything by Kirk Franklin, Shirley Caesar, Dottie Peoples, Fred Hammond and Andrae Crouch."—Loretta Champion Johnson, CMP, HelmsBriscoe
“Our organization is traditional, so we like to stick with hymns that have a more contemporary feel to them—such as ‘Victory in Jesus,’ ‘He Lives’ and ‘Great Is Thy Faithfulness.’ But in recent years we’ve added songs such as ‘Mighty to Save,” ‘Good Good Father’ and an attendee favorite, ‘Jesus Messiah’ by Chris Tomlin.—Morgan Caldwell, The International Convention of The Gideons International
“The theme of my event is ‘Addicted to Love.’ My vision is to build, strengthen and encourage chaplains and faith leaders to stay in the marathon. Songs that fit that theme are ‘Brighter Day’ by Kirk Franklin, ‘It’s My Time’ by Kelly Price, ‘I’m on the Rise’ by Jekalyn Carr and ‘My Name Is Victory’ by Jonathan Nelson.”—Garney Davis Jr., Impacting Love Global Ministries
“Tye Tribbett’s ‘Work It Out’ and William Murphy’s ‘Arise’ are the two I am playing most frequently. It gets [attendees’] blood pumping in the meetings—great vibes!”—Pastor Vandeon D. Griffin, South Central Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
“Our playlist includes Chris Tomlin’s ‘Good Good Father' and Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s ‘Break Every Chain.’”—Brenda Miller, Brenda Miller Ministries
“We are currently playing ‘Let the Good Times Roll’ by Ben Rector, ‘Dance With Me Tonight’ by Olly Murs and ‘I’m Turnt’ by Lecrae.”—Tyler Rains, Campus Outreach Charleston
“For our Woman of Wholeness Retreat in August this year, the theme was ‘Sleeping With the Enemy.’ The weekend retreat was not about a relationship with another person; it was about the relationship you have with yourself—the one you have with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. To go along with that, our song was ‘Wanna Be Happy?’ by Kirk Franklin.”—Linda Penick, Linda D. Penick Ministries
