Chris Christian's songs have been recorded by Elvis Presley, Olivia Newton-John, Hall and Oates, Natalie Cole, Sheena Easton, The Pointer Sisters, Al Jarreau, The Carpenters, Amy Grant, Patti Austin, Dionne Warwick, America, the Imperials, B.J. Thomas, B W Stevenson, Marilyn McCoo, Dan Peek, Cheryl Ladd, Jane Olivor, Sandi Patti, Pat Boone, Ali Lohan, Donnie Osmond, and others.

Christian has produced albums that have been nominated for nine and won four Grammy Awards. He has also been nominated for seven Gospel Music Association Dove Awards as an artist, songwriter, and producer, winning five. He has also released sixteen other albums as a solo artist.

Throughout his career, he has written music for many major TV sports events such as the Super Bowl, NCAA finals, The Masters, Olympics, NFL Today, US Open, and many more.

With two self-titled albums (1976 and 1981) Chris Christian launched onto the scene with a very Jesus Music influenced album (1976) that includes a variation of the classic Jesus Music song, "Why Does the Devil Have All the Great Music" and there are many other great 70's pop and rock influenced songs on that 1976 album that should appeal to fans of Larry Norman, Dogwood, and Randy Stonehill.  

With the 1981 album, Christian launched himself as a leader in West Coast pop with many hits and a mainstream mega-hit "I Want You, I Need You" featuring vocals from Cheryl Ladd (Charlie's Angels). The album also features the immortal Tommy Funderburk (The Front, What If, King of Hearts) on two tracks.  It's a West Coast pop favorite amongst collectors and only on CD for a brief period in Japan. This is the very first CD reissue of the album in the US.  

The 1988, Thinking of You This Christmas has been long out of print, and is a classic Christmas release with a host of special guests to assist in celebrating Christmas!

All three albums are digitally remastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound, All three albums feature exclusive bonus tracks. All three albums features 2020 liner notes written by Chris Christian himself. All three albums feature 16 page insert booklets with rare pictures and memories. 

If you value classic CCM - three three albums are must-have albums!
