Thousands of people who don't know Mercy Me by name still recognize their hit song about heaven, I Can Only Imagine, from their Almost There project. Spoken For maintains their country-tinged modern worship-influenced pop style, although perhaps with a little less twang in the vocals. My favorite song is the PFR-esque All The Above:
The day heaven found you / The day the angels sang / Praises to the Father / Who called you by name / The moment you surrendered / The moment you were saved / Life as you knew it / Forever was changed / And all the above rejoiced.
(Actually, I should have alluded to Mercy Me's Festival Con Dios tour-mates Audio Adrenaline instead, since Mark Stuart shares a songwriting credit on the song.) Other standouts on Spoken For include There's a Reason and a remake of the classic hymn, The Love of God.
If you like the idea of Delirious? coming from Nashville or Dallas instead of England, you'll enjoy Spoken For. This one is for fans of Mercy Me, Steven Curtis Chapman, and modern pop-country.
