The Top TenXW

1TobyMacToby McKeehan, better known by his stage name TobyMac, is a Christian hip hop recording artist, music producer, hip-hop and pop artist, songwriter and author.

The best rapper/singer in the Christian world! He does songs with some of the best, too. He can do fun music, sad music, happy music, worship music, relationship music, soft music, rock music, rap music, and more! He is the complete package in Christian Singers.

I have heard Athiests tell me that christians have the worst songs ever and then say that their songs were the best (if I were them, I wouldn't brag about songs like "california girls", those are terrible songs), then I have them listen to songs by tobymac and then they take back what they said about christian songs being terrible (sorry if I spelled words wrong, I am not the best speller in the world.)

He is the awesome at singer ever. I love his music. It sounds like any contemporary song except it packs a powerful message all throughout it. He is by far one of the greatest christian singers of all time. Rock on toby Mac

Toby Mac is the best

2Chris Tomlin

wow!.. everytime I'll listen to his worshiping songs, I felt my spirit is filled with holiness through God.
This artist is very awesome..!

Chris Tomlin songs aren't loud or have dynamic instrumentals, but hold this quiet strength that gives hope through God-praising lyrics and soft melody. It's one of those songs that catch you off guard and have a impact on your day.

I don't think I have heard a song that I haven't liked by Chris Tomlin. I love listening to his music. I love the words to his music. His songs all sound different, he's just one talented artist. God gave him a gift and he is using it. Had my sister (who doesn't listen to Christian music) listen to one song of his and now she is hooked.

Chris is fantastic. Saw him in concert back in October. Chris and Jeremy Camp should be number one and two. Toby Mac is nowhere close to these guys. Common.

3SkilletSkillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

Skillet is the best band of ALL time...! No comparison to any other band this is definitely the BEST..! and to tell you the truth I never really like "god" music but this band got me into it - eminems_718

Great band. They get the message of God and Jesus across to people who find the other stuff boring. Love this band!

Without Skillet, I wouldn't be saved. It's easy to mistake them for a secular band, and when you find out they're Christian, it blows your mind, and you see a new perspective on everything

Christians and rock music together is heavenly

4LecraeLecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor.

Lecrae's songs can easily equal, or even beat songs by secular music's top artists. Because I am a die hard rap fan, there is no question in my mind that Lecrae is not only the best Christian artist, but the best artist there is today. With his powerful lyrics and strong, energetic beats, Lecrae should definitely be the top on this list.

At first glance lecrae can seem like just a artist who does "fun" Christian music and he's just kind of shallow and its not very deep Christian music. WRONG BROTHUH! Lecrae frequently exposes the secularism of mainstream rap music (one example is in his song, NUTHIN) and actually has very deep meaning to all of his lyrics. He has a pretty interesting testimony about how he used to be a drug addict and a gang member and stuff like that which he frequently references in his songs, which lets him relate to unsaved people more than any Christian artist,which eventually draws them to God once they actually hear what he's saying. Even if you don't care about all that, he still makes catchy, quality beats and flows that are a safe alternative to secular rap music. Sorta like the way "trunk or treat" is a safe alternative to Halloween. If your a newcomer I would reccomend your first song to listen to would be don't WAIST YOUR LIFE. Awesome singing and rapping and a very relevent message. Then ...more

He's obviously the best rapper, he was rated this by many different websites. He has good songs like background, joyful noise and Don't waste your life. He has good beats and his raps are solid, even my non-Christian friends like him.

He is the best

7Jeremy Camp

He is a great singer and has a beautiful voice!

"The Way" is awesome song, Chris Tomlin and Jeremy Camp far ahead of competition.

"Would you take the place of this man? Would you take the nails from his hands? "

Love his voice and songs, he also has an amazing testimony, definitely one of my favorite artists.

8Casting Crowns

Because his songs makes me Alive and he is a good singer.
May God bless them!

A fantastic band. One can clearly see the passion they have in their faith through their music

Casting crowns should be higher than this! But it's okay. I love tobymac too - koopaiscute

I'm only 11years old and I went to your concert 2 years ago andI still adore you.

9Owl CityOwl City is an American electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is one of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young.

A very humble singer I guess.. too expressive to his musics especially when it comes to singing of praise to God! He should be at the top 20 I suggest..

A slower kind of music but I listen to it just as much as rapping music

11Hillsong Young & Free

This guy has good lyrics it's just his voice is annoying

Young & free brings a modern beat with a powerful message in all their music, from car jams remind you of God's love to worship songs they do it all. they are also phenomenal live!

12MercyMe

Songs like "I Can Only Imagine" and "Word of God Speak, " indeed -- speak for themselves.

Wrote and Performed the #1 Song of the decade, Word of God Speak. They perform powerful, great, amazing songs.

I am in a praise band and we do "Greater". What a terrific song, and fun to do!

13Red

Wow! Just Wow! I can't believe Red is at number 8. They Should be in the top 3. Before you vote for Skillet or Tobymac go listen to these songs by Red, Breathe Into Me, Ordinary World, Mystery Of You, Never Be the Same, Not Alone, Feed The Machine, and Faceless.

RED should be NUMBER ONE. Way better then Switchfoot, Newsboys, Casting crown and Skillet. Christ Tomlin can compete. But RED is NUMBER ONE. Even non Christian band... NUMBER ONE -:O Praise GOD and GOD bless.

Meaningful songs describing the love of Christ

14Group 1 Crew

Words expressed from the hearts of the broken souls, words from the streets, words from the Lord, Jesus Christ. Beautiful composition, soulful lyrics, depth rap. The only best urban group.

Wake me up is an awesome song by them

They are so good! I love the songs!

17Jesus Culture

Some of their music is good, but the church they come from believes some pretty heretical things, I don't listen to their music anymore and if I do I listen to someone else sing their songs not them singing, I just can't enjoy music sung by heretics.

They have really beautiful songs like "You won't relent" - it's simply amazing; "Light of Your face", "Holy" and so many more.

18Colton Dixon

I've never been much of a Christian music lover, but the first time I heard Colton Dixon's 'More of you Less of me & Fool's Gold' I was instantly hooked. His albums have quite a secular sound and his songs are very spiritual and thought provoking. I own both of his albums A Messenger & Anchor and listen to them all the time! If you've never listened to his music, do it, you won't regret it!

He rocked American Idol, and he chose the Christian path of music which is inspiring! His music is radio type music but with godly lyrics!

20Tenth Avenue North

Tenth avenue north has something to offer.. Their songs are deep.. The lyrics are wonderfully woven into one song.. Behind the songs are also very powerful and empowering to every christian.. Their new released album shows the struggle of every christian but at the end it's always about Jesus still, making the band more shining to me is that they reflect and make Christ the star of every song... Praise God..

I think Starfield is another great band.. They have piercing emotional lyrics which makes you feel much more wonderful in Christ.. Like a reminder.. I think both bands have the same concept..

Tenth avenue north has been in my playlist since I've been aware of Christian music.. their songs are great! they inspire everyone not excluding any age.. they don't just make music but they also make praises and adoration for Jesus... hope you'll vote for them they are just too awesome they shouldn't be in the 20th they deserve better

There is no way that Ten Avenue North could be 17th! They have the most inspirational songs and lyrics! They should DEFINITELY be in the top 3!

They are so good
