B.J. Thomas’ God Bless The Children from 1979

Way back when I was a Navy boy, a Christian record label (I don’t recall which one but I think it was at the time, Word Records or perhaps Myrrh),  released a Christmas LP featuring a young Amy Grant, the late Dan Peek (who had recently left the band America), B.W. Stevenson (the original singer of “My Maria,”) Reba Rambo and several others.

B.J. Thomas sang two songs on it — both rarely get played on the radio (even back then). Both songs carry a tremendous message. I’ll feature both tonight. The first is “God Bless The Children.” It’s followed by the title track,  “On This Christmas Night.”

You can actually still pick up the entire CD at iTunes and can even find a VHS of a live concert featuring most of the same artists via amazon.com.
