The music we choose to play on Celebration Radio KAMB not only professes faith in Jesus Christ through the lyrics but also through the artists’ personal testimony.

Cochren & Co. and Parking Lot

Cochren & Co.

All of us at KAMB hope and pray that our listening family has found encouragement and hope by listening to this station. Every day brings new challenges, but our goal is to remind everyone who listens that our God is here with us. Whether you’re a new Christian, a seasoned listener, or a curious nonbeliever, our station has something to offer you. So, keep your radios on and stay alert for Cochren & Co.’s latest hit, Parking Lot.

Cochren & Co.

Cochren & Co. first began when Michael Cochren and some friends got together and started a band. The group traveled together and played music at different venues across the country. Cochren & Co. still consists of a group of friends but now also includes Michael Cochren’s wife Leah. Since their initial formation, Cochren & Co. have released multiple top hit singles and received a GMA Dove Award nomination. The band’s debut album with Gotee Records released in 2021 and their music received further recognition from Billboard and GRAMMY.com. Cochren & Co. were also invited to appear on the Grand Ole Opry stage in June 2023. With all these great achievements already tackled, Cochren & Co. are sure to continue their success as they glorify God through their inspiring music. Their latest release, Parking Lot, will touch the hearts of listeners everywhere as we are invited to remember our testimonies.   

Parking Lot

It can be really easy to believe that every salvation story is better or prettier than our own. All of us have heard powerful testimonies about people hearing God’s voice, being miraculously healed, or immediately turning from addiction. In Parking Lot, we’re all reminded that the miraculous still happens in small moments and unexpected places, too. Just as many experience dramatic interventions, many experience quiet ones. No matter where your first encounter with the Lord was, that moment of connection is significant. Parking Lot draws attention to that intimacy with God.

It’s in the quiet moments when God speaks the loudest. He knows when the best time to act is, and He knows exactly how to transform a simple moment into a life-defining one. For Michael Cochren, that moment happened in a parking lot while he was listening to the radio. In the unlikeliest of places, God got personal with Cochren just like He does with all of us. No testimony looks exactly like another’s, but all of them lead back to the same result: relationship with God. Whether it’s in the middle of a storm or the middle of a Parking Lot, God meets all of us exactly when we need Him to.

Lyrics

It wasn't where I thought we'd meet
Outside of a dorm room on Franklin Street
With tears in my eyes in the driver's seat
That's just the place God came for me
It was a still small voice
On a Tuesday night
Like You were right there with me
On the passenger side
You turned that car
Into a mountain top
Oh, I met Jesus in a parking lot
I ran from You for quite a while
But You called out in love to this wayward child
You didn't wait at the altar for me to walk the aisle
You grabbed my heart right through that radio dial
It was a still small voice
On a Tuesday night
Like You were right there with me
On the passenger side
You turned that car
Into a mountain top
Oh, I met Jesus in a parking lot
Oh, I saw the light in that dashboard glow
Oh, threw my hands in the air when You saved my soul
It wasn't where I thought we'd meet
Outside of a dorm room on Franklin Street
It was a still small voice
On a Tuesday night
Like You were right there with me
On the passenger side
You turned that car
Into a mountain top
Oh, I met Jesus in a parking lot
It was a still small voice
On a Tuesday night
Like You were right there with me
On the passenger side
You turned that car
Into a mountain top
Oh, I met Jesus in a parking lot
Oh

Conclusion

The things we spend our attention on are important. The shows we watch, music we listen to, and things we pursue have the potential to uplift or destroy us. Cochren & Co. illustrate this through their message in Parking Lot. The last thing Michael Cochren expected that night was to encounter the living God. Yet he did: through the radio. This is the kind of story that should make us pause and realize how pivotal our influences are. Stations like KAMB want to point our listeners’ focus back to the Lord during challenging and joyful times. To do that, though, we all have to seek out God even during the struggle.

The next time you find yourself flipping through stations, keep your ears open for Parking Lot. To hear more testimonies by artists like Cochren & Co., keep your radio dial tuned to KAMB. You can find more ways to listen to the station through our Ways to Listen and Where to Listen pages. To read more about Cochren & Co., visit their website here.

Consumed by fire

KAMB is excited to keep encouraging our listening family as August ends and the new school year begins. As we look for ways to honor God every day, remember that worship music is a great place to start! Among the latest hits at our station you’ll find Walk With Jesus by Consumed By Fire.

Consumed By Fire

Consumed By Fire first began when three brothers decided to create music together. Caleb, Jordan, and Josh Ward were raised in a Christian home with pastoring parents in Oklahoma. As the brothers got older, they developed their musical talents and used their gifts for the Lord. Their parents’ ministry was a large influence in their lives, and they later sought to engage in ministry themselves. Such focus is clear in every song Consumed By Fire releases as they boldly tackle hard truths head on. The Christian walk is messy and full of difficulty, and these brothers are unafraid to talk about it. To live for Christ is to die to oneself daily. This is the message Consumed By Fire seeks to share.

Over the years, Consumed By Fire has released multiple albums and great singles. Their most recent album, however, has driven up their popularity with its raw themes and powerful lyrics. Walk With Jesus is their latest hit and you don’t want to miss it.

If it wasn’t this form of ministry, if it wasn’t music, it would just be something else. Ministry is what we were born to do.

Walk With Jesus

In Walk With Jesus, Consumed By Fire describes the character of Jesus and the reality of choosing His ways over our own. Unlike anything this world can give us, Jesus offers us eternal promises and security. Something spiritual, transformative, and powerful happens when we commit our lives to Christ. Everything that once held value to us shifts. We may still care about those things, but our love for Jesus outweighs them all. Walk With Jesus reminds us of how much better things are when we’re pursuing Him. Every struggle, temptation, and heartache becomes endurable when we walk with our Savior.

Yet, there is an even deeper struggle when we choose to follow Jesus: it isn’t easy. Sometimes the path towards Him is the loneliest and longest one we’ll ever walk on. There will be days when the questions overwhelm us and the fears threaten to destroy. There will be moments when we feel like we’ve wandered too far or done too much. But choosing Jesus will never fail us. Walk With Jesus outlines the hardships of choosing our faith but it also outlines the joy. He loves us more than we’ll ever know. He’ll never leave us. He’s always here to restore us. No matter the hardship, life with Jesus is infinitely better than life without Him.

Consumed By Fire – Walk With Jesus (Official Lyric Video)

Lyrics

So many people
Trying to fill a void inside
So many questions
Asking how, asking why
I might not have all the answers
But I've tasted and I've seen
There's a better path with Jesus
There's no going back for me
I'm gonna live the way He says to live
Do what He says to do
You can choose whatever road you choose
But I'm gonna love the way He says to love
Trust the way He says to trust
This world alone will never be enough
So I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk, I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
(I’m gonna walk, I’m gonna walk)
He's in the leading
That's why I follow where He goes
He's in restoring
All the lost and broken souls
He keeps moving rich in mercy
He meets us where we are
No matter where you've gone
No such thing as gone too far
I'm gonna live the way He says to live
Do what He says to do
You can choose whatever road you choose
But I'm gonna love the way He says to love
Trust the way He says to trust
This world alone will never be enough
So I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk (I’m gonna walk)
I'm gonna walk (I'm gonna walk)
I'm gonna walk with Jesus (I’m gonna walk)
Though none go with me
Still I will follow
Though none go with me
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk
Though none go with me
Still I will follow
Though none go with me
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk
Though none go with me
Still I will follow
Though none go with me
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk
(Though none go with me)
I'm gonna live the way He says to live
Do what He says to do
You can choose whatever road you choose
But I'm gonna love the way He says to love
Trust the way He says to trust
This world alone will never be enough
So I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk with Jesus
I'm gonna walk with Jesus

Phil Wickham and I Believe

Phil Wickham

Let KAMB ease your worries while you get back to school ready and enjoy uplifting music and programs, now if someone can tell the fall weather to join the program! As you go about your week, keep your ears open for I Believe by Phil Wickham!

Phil Wickham

Phil Wickham raised in Southern California with his siblings and parents who were worship leaders at their church. Wickham at 13 began leading worship after feeling the need to make faith his own. After graduating from Calvary Christian School in Vista, California, Wickham decided to pursue a career in music. Throughout his career, Wickham has released several albums and attention-grabbing singles. Some of his greatest hits include “Living Hope,” “This is Amazing Grace,” and “What a beautiful name.” As a result Wickham was nominated for two Grammy Awards, an Amercian Music Award, a Billboard Music Award and sixteen Dove Awards four of which he won! Wickham continues to release powerful music that many of you probably sing during worship on Sundays, as a result his latest single, I Believe, is already gearing up to be another fan favorite.

I Believe

I Believe is Phil Wickham’s new released single from his upcoming album of the same name.

“There are so many searching for truth, meaning, belonging, purpose, hope, fulfillment, peace and healing,” Wickham passionately stated about his inspiration for ‘I Believe.‘ “I have found all of these things and more in the person of Jesus Christ. I think the world is desperate to see and hear people full of hope, joy, love and confidence telling their stories about how Jesus saved and changed their lives; about how he is the best thing they have ever found, and he will be the best thing anyone will ever find. My song, “I Believe,” was written to shout about Jesus from the rooftops. Something that we as believers can unify together on and say with joy in our hearts that we believe in the mighty name of Jesus! I can’t wait to sing this one with you all. I’ve never put more time, effort and prayer into a project, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you all when it releases on Aug. 18!”

Wickham uses his song to remind us that believing Jesus is our foundation is the only way to go through life, with peace, love, and happiness! I Believe reminds us not to be ashamed of the gospel. That Jesus Christ is the one who saved our lives and loves us unconditionally. Wickham does a fantastic job of mixing worship music, with an upbeat tempo. It makes you want to dance and shout from the top of your lungs! I Believe is sure to be at the top of you playlist while you are on your morning run, cleaning the house, or jamming out in your car, tune in to KAMB and blast Wickham’s newest hit!

Lyrics

I believe there is one salvation
One doorway that leads to life
One redemption
One confession
I believe in the name of Jesus Christ
I believe in the crucifixion
By His blood I have been set free
I believe in the resurrection
Hallelujah His life is death's defeat
All praise to God the Father
All praise to Christ the Son
All praise to the Holy Spirit
Our God has overcome
The King who was and is and evermore will be
In Jesus mighty name I believe
I believe I believe
I believe in the hope of heaven
He's preparing a place for me
Far beyond what hearts imagine
Ears have heard or eyes have seen
I believe that a day is coming
He's returning to claim His bride
Light the altar
Keep it burning
See the Lamb who rose a roaring Lion
All praise to God the Father
All praise to Christ the Son
All praise to the Holy Spirit
Our God has overcome
The King who was and is and evermore will be
In Jesus mighty name I believe
Oh I believe in You
No I'll never be ashamed
Of the gospel of Jesus Christ
How could I ever walk away
From the One who saved my life
No I'll never be ashamed
Of the gospel of Jesus Christ
How could I ever walk away
From the One who saved my life
Oh no I'll never be ashamed
Of the gospel of Jesus Christ
How could I ever walk away
From the One who saved my life
All praise to God the Father
All praise to Christ the Son
All praise to the Holy Spirit
Our God has overcome
The King who was and is and evermore will be
In Jesus mighty name I believe
All praise to God Our Father
All praise to Christ the Son
All praise to the Holy Spirit
Our God has overcome
The King who was and is and evermore will be
In Jesus mighty name I believe
In Jesus mighty name I believe
I believe I believe
I believe I believe

Conclusion

When the weight of the world and all its negativity gets you down, you can turn to the hope of Jesus Christ always and in all ways. No matter what we may be going through if we believe and praise him we can overcome anything. As Phil Wickham reminds us, no matter what we can keep going because, in Jesus might name WE Believe.

Brandon Lake

As the summer heat waves roll across California, we hope the music at KAMB rolls across your hearts. What better way to relax away from the sun than worshiping our Lord? (We couldn’t think of one, either!) So, do yourself a favor and take a few minutes to reflect on the Lord’s faithfulness no matter where you are today. One of the best ways to do this is to listen to Praise You Anywhere by Brandon Lake.

Brandon Lake

Brandon Lake was born and raised in South Carolina and currently lives there with his family while serving as a worship leader. He released his first studio albums in 2015 and 2016, but his popularity exploded through his collaborations. Lake’s first co-written song that gained traction was “This Is a Move” which he released with Tasha Cobbs Leonard. The project landed him the Dove Award for song of the year in 2019. Since then, Lake has worked with other artists such as Elevation Worship, Maverick City Music, Brooke Ligertwood, and others. Each opportunity has resulted in powerful worship full of heartfelt praise and stirring lyrics. Some of his most popular songs include “Graves into Gardens,” “Talking to Jesus,” and “Honey in the Rock.” He was nominated for several Dove Awards and received two of them following his work on these songs and more. Lake has also released his own albums, House of Miracles, and his latest single, Praise You Anywhere.

Praise You Anywhere

Praise You Anywhere powerfully reminds us to give God our praise in every circumstance. It can be really easy to offer God our joy in worship when things are going well. But Lake reminds us that we are to set our minds towards praise even when we don’t want to. His message is immediately strengthened through the opening lyrics in Praise You Anywhere. Lake references famous Bible stories of great of peril and faith as moments of greatest praise. Whether we find ourselves in the fire like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in a lions’ den like Daniel, or before a giant like David, we are to praise our Lord. Most of us haven’t faced such dramatic threats as these, but we have all battled against confusion, disappointment, and heartache.

Rather than using his song to chastise the believer, though, Lake uses it to encourage. Praise You Anywhere pulls us away from the shadow of our miseries and into the light of God’s faithfulness. It reminds us to position our hearts in praise during the best of times and the worst of times because our God is Lord over them all. Our seasons vary and some of our joys may fade, but our God never does. Instead of focusing on the bitterness of life, we should fix our eyes upon Him and His unchanging nature. When we do, we remember all the good we’ve ever seen our God do and say we’ll Praise You Anywhere.

Lyrics

Sometimes you've gotta dance through the darkness
Sing through the fire
Praise when it don't make sense
Sometimes you've gotta stare down the giant
Worship from the lion's den
Sometimes you've gotta shout it from the mountain
Louder in the valley
Trusting that He's gonna get you there
Sometimes you've gotta welcome the wonder
Wait for the answer
Worship with your hands in the air
I'll praise You anywhere
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest 
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest
He is worthy, yes, He is worthy of all of the praise
Sometimes you've gotta praise in the prison
Cry out to heaven
Shout it 'til the doors swing wide
Sometimes you've gotta stand on your shackles
Brave in the battle
Worship with your hands held high
I'll praise You anywhere
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest 
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest 
He is worthy, yes, He is worthy of all of the—
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest 
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest
He is worthy, yes, He is worthy of all of the praise
Faithful all my life
Blessings day and night
Countless reasons why
I'll praise You anywhere
Every promise kept
Goodness every step
Each and every breath
I'll praise You anywhere
Faithful all my life
Blessings day and night
Countless reasons why
I'll praise You anywhere
Every promise kept
Goodness every step
Each and every breath
I'll praise You anywhere
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest 
Praise, give Him praise, give Him praise in the highest 
He is worthy, yes, He is worthy of all of the praise
Oh, I'll praise You anywhere
Oh, mountain, oh, valley
I know that You're with me there
I'll praise You anywhere

Conclusion

Choose today as the time to start praising God more than you already have before. Whether you find yourself in a season of easy joys or shattering sorrows, praise Him.
