Also hitting the shelves is Walker-Smith's Christmas album "When Christmas Comes." The album contains 17 favorites newly-recorded classics and sacred carols, plus one new song, "Tell Me the Story," written by Anthony Skinner. From cinematic, grand orchestral backdrops to plaintive folk-acoustic stylings and an occasional bluesy flair, all the tracks on the new album feature Kim's powerful, soulful voice.
"I know that at the core of who I am, I am a worship leader," says Kim. "That part of me comes out naturally in these songs celebrating the whole reason for Christmas-Jesus, that He came to change our lives and set us free. The message of the gospel is the whole theme of Christmas and why we celebrate and what makes it so wonderful."
For Kim, Christmas has also always been about family. "I don't have a single Christmas memory that my family isn't all together," she continues. "No matter what kind of hardship we may have been going through, we were all together for Christmas."
"The reason I always record live is because we're trying to capture a moment in worship, but with this...it's a little bit different," the multi-Dove Award nominee explains. "We're making something fun and creative, but an album that still carries my heart in worship. I wanted a mixture of both-songs that could show my heart of worship and songs that are just fun and a part of Christmas, a part of magical childhood memories."
