Amanda Joy Powell has released a Christian Christmas (CCM) track called 'This Child of Bethlehem'.
When I was going through a collection of Christmas music, I came across a song released in December 2020 called “This Child of Bethlehem' by Amanda Joy Powell. I enjoy Amanda's beautiful voice, it is the kind of voice that I can listen to again and again—but more importantly, I want to share this song with you!
Amanda's Christmas message is one that I feel everyone needs to hear. She sings: 'He came so softly to this world, no one could fathom that He would choose this way. He chose a manger not a throne, humble beginnings for the one who came to save.'
She continues: 'The angels sing about Him, for He alone is worthy. The shepherds bow down before His glory. This baby is the promise, He’s the redeeming plan! He changes everything!'
I think we can all agree that these lyrics are so important at this time of year—and even more so during other times of the year as well! We hope you'll listen to Amanda's song below and enjoy it as much as we have!
Amanda Joy Powell is a worship leader, songwriter, and independent recording artist with a deep passion for connecting people with the love of Jesus Christ through music. Amanda grew up in the Red Lake area of Ontario, Canada, the daughter of missionary parents with a passion for music. 'I've always been surrounded by music,' she says fondly. 'When I was four years old, one of my very first memories was singing acapella with my family at our local radio station.' For several years, the Fretz Family, as they were known, were regular guests on the remote radio station. With her mother as a guitarist, Amanda continued to take piano lessons throughout junior high school, and by the age of sixteen, she was leading worship at her church.
