Award-Winning Artists Honor Rich Mullins 20 Years After His Passing




It was 20 years ago today that Christian music lost one of its greatest poets and prophets, Rich Mullins. For those that knew him, he often served as a “voice in the wilderness” calling us all to a greater love, a deeper compassion, and an absolute commitment to our awesome God.

With Mullins’ influence impacting an immeasurable amount of artists and songwriters, a few of those very people – Mac Powell, Matt Maher and Ellie Holcomb – gathered to record one of his never-released songs titled “The Joy Of Jesus,” a simple blessing conferring on us the grace, love and joy of Jesus.

Produced by Jonathan Smith (Zach Williams, Tenth Avenue North), the song concludes with a portion of Mullins’ vocal recording, which was found by his long-time publisher, Randy Cox.

“The Joy Of Jesus” is available now, courtesy of Provident Label Group. Click here to purchase and here to stream.

A lyric video was also created for the song, which can be viewed below.
