The Ones to Watch in 2010

By Melissa Riddle-Chalos, Jenny Bennett and the senior editorial team

The big glittery ball has dropped from the sky, countdowns have reached 12:00 midnight, and the mass choir of humanity has sung in the New Year all over the world. There’s a certain magic in each new year that motivates us to reevaluate and reengage with life. To sift through the clutter and get down to the bare essentials. To take advantage of a fresh start.

For those of us with our ears to the ground in Christian and Gospel music, the New Year is an opportunity to keep an eye on new and emerging artists who stand ready to make a big splash in 2010.

Granted, any ‘Top 10’ list doesn’t come easy. So we, the erstwhile editorial team at, decided to narrow the list by starting with a few pre-requisites: no more than two full-length label releases, must bring something unique or exceptional to the current music landscape or bring with them a certain anticipation, excitement or buzz that’s already in the works.

So we sifted and sorted and listened and watched and argued and argued some more, and here’s where we landed: our official Ones to Watch in 2010.

Take me to the list!
