Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Journey member Jonathan Cain is joined by GRAMMY®-nominated, Platinum®-selling Newsboys frontman Michael Tait for his newest Christmas single, "Wonder of Wonders." Available now from Identity Records at iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, Google Play, iHeartRadio and more outlets globally, the song is also going for adds at radio and is available to radio via Play MPE.
Produced at Cain's Addiction Sound Studios in Nashville by GRAMMY-nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning "Producer of the Year" Ian Eskelin and co-written by Cain, Eskelin and Tony Wood, a five-time Dove winner with 31 No. 1 songs, Cain shares, "We knew we wanted to write a Christmas song that really emphasized the incredible miracle of Jesus' birth.
"So many times, we can celebrate Christmas without fully recognizing the miracle of salvation that Christ's birth purchased for us," continues Cain. "We wanted to celebrate the many miracles surrounding the Nativity and draw attention to the pure wonder of the gift of Jesus. I am excited for nations to rejoice because of the Wonder of Wonders!"

Co-writer of the best-selling catalog rock song in iTunes' history ("Don't Stop Believin'"), as well as writer of "Faithfully" and co-writer of "Who's Crying Now," "Open Arms" and many more international hit songs, this iconic artist continues to press into his faith with inspired new music.
The new single follows Cain's first Christmas solo album Unsung Noel, which released amidst wide critical acclaim in 2017, along with three more solo albums in as many years, including his current Billboard-featured More Like Jesus that Parade calls a "triumphant new album."
