The Artists whose songs we play on Celebration Radio KAMB share their testimony of faith in Jesus Christ through their music.

Brandon Heath and Tasha Layton

As we welcome this Christmas season, KAMB is excited to celebrate Christ’s birth with our listening family. Throughout the next few weeks, you’ll hear covers of traditional Christmas music as well as brand new songs by your favorite artists. One of the latest holiday hits is God Made a Way, a collaboration by Brandon Heath and Tasha Layton.

Brandon Heath and Tasha Layton

Brandon Heath has been a CCM favorite for several years. He initially began writing songs as a teen in Nashville. Around that same time, he also began exploring Christianity and soon came to faith in Christ. Both passions were eventually combined and led him to success in CCM. Heath released his first major album in 2006 and has followed it with several other albums throughout the past 18 years. From them, KAMB listeners will recognize songs like “Give Me Your Eyes”, “Your Love”, “Jesus In Disguise”, and others. With every great album, Heath has also received various music awards including eight Dove Awards, Grammy nominations, and an Emmy. In addition to his individual successes, Heath has also participated in several collaborations with other artists. His most recent work led him to fellow CCM artist, Tasha Layton.

Unlike Heath, Tasha Layton grew up in a Christian home but faced difficulty in her faith after a church split. Her trials prompted her to pursue religious studies in college, eventually leading her back to Christianity. After graduating, Layton moved to California and earned a Master of Divinity degree while working as a worship leader. She also spent a few years exploring her musical talents by auditioning for the ninth season of American Idol and later becoming a back-up vocalist for Katy Perry. In 2019, she made her debut into CCM. Layton’s popularity among listeners rose at a rapid pace as her two later songs— “Into the Sea” and “Look What You’ve Done”—attracted further attention. Thus far, her music has landed high rankings on Christian Billboard charts and a spot as a Top 5 female Christian artist in 2021.

As both Brandon Heath and Tasha Layton continue developing their careers, they also welcome Christmas through their beautiful collaboration God Made a Way.

God Made a Way

God Made a Way is a gentle and heartfelt reminder of exactly what God did for us by sending Jesus. Much like our infant Savior, the song is sweet but powerful in its delivery. Every lyric tells the story of Jesus’ birth and the love God demonstrated through it. Heath starts the song by singing of the birth, while Layton’s first words express a longing to have been there. The pair end the song by voicing a moment of reflection during the present time we live in. God Made a Way reminds us to pause and consider what the true celebration is all about this season. As the artists sing, we are invited to listen and sit in awe of our Savior with them. So much miraculous power and divine grace was swaddled in the tiny bundle of a baby. We were condemned, but our Lord intervened because of His love for us. What a night it must have been, and what a miracle we can grasp onto because God Made a Way.

Lyrics

That night when Jesus was born
Back two thousand years or so
Guess in the grand scheme of time
It wasn't really that long ago
When Mary laid down
Holding onto Joseph
It wasn't his child but
He believed she was chosen
That night when Jesus was born
Two thousand years ago
When God made a way
God made a way
A way in a manger
God made a way
God made a way
A way in a manger
Wish I could follow the star
To that little town of Bethlehem
Walk through the fields where those wise men
And shepherds watched over him
But what would I say, what would I bring
What else could I do but just worship my king
Wish I could follow the star
To that little town of Bethlehem
Where God made a way
God made a way
A way in a manger
God made a way
God made a way
A way in a manger
In his infinite love
It had to be done
He did the impossible
And gave up his son
Jesus
God made a way
A way in a manger
For God so loved the world
And God still loves the world
Look at all His hands have made
It was God who made a way
For God so loved the world
And God still loves the world
His only son to save
It was God who made a way
As I sit down in the quiet
In the dark of this living room
Snow falling outside my window
I can't help but think of you
That God made a way
God made a way
A way in a manger
There was no other way
God made a way
A way in a manger

Conclusion

Much of this Christmas season may already be overwhelming you. There are relatives to see, friends to catch up with, meals to prepare, and probably some gifts to exchange. However, as you go about the busyness of the holidays, remember Who this season is about. Enjoy the time you have with loved ones and eat all the food you can handle, but also remember Jesus.
