The Crabb Family: "Icon" Music Review

Southern Gospel Music's Best

It was in June while eating at an IHOP restaurant that I met Larry the waiter. When I first saw him I did a double take because he looked so much like the Christian recording artist Jason Crabb.

He went round the table writing down the orders of the people who were with us. It was my turn to place an order only I had something else I wanted to say to him.

"You look so much like Jason Crabb." I said. With a puzzled look on his face he said, "Who?" The conversation continued. "Don't tell me you don't know who Jason Crabb is?" Well, he didn't. From that point on I no longer called him Larry, but Larry Jason. The entire table got a kick out of it and especially our server.

The meal was over and we all said our good-byes, but I couldn't let this go, and decided to visit a local Christian Book Store to see if I could find a CD of Jason Crabb's.

Browsing through the selections I came across the perfect CD that had most of my favorite recordings from the the Crabb Family. It was this CD that I purchased to take back to "Larry Jason." As a matter of fact, I liked it so much I returned to the store and bought one for us.

The Crabb Family CD: ICON

Why I love "The Crab Family: Icon" CD

The Crabb family has been a favorite of mine for over ten years now. I love how the family sings together and their respect for one another, but mostly I love their testimony. The words to their songs touch the heart, and when Jason sings you can't help but cry because he is such an inspiration.

Love the Mix on this CD

Finding a CD with so many of an artists top hits on it is really rare. The Icon CD with the Crabb siblings on the cover is one of those finds. Each one is so talented and brings something different to the group. This recording has twelve songs: "Don't You Wanna Go" is an upbeat song that talks about going to Heaven. Once you hear it you'll want to keep singing it over and over.

"Please Come Down to Me" and "Through the Fire" are two more of their best selling songs and among my favorites. However, "Please Forgive Me" always brings me back to the cross of Jesus and to my knees in prayer.

Other songs include: Can't Nobody Do Me Like Jesus, He Came Looking for Me, I'd Rather Have Jesus, I Go to the Rock, the Cross, Redeemed, Amazing Grace and Lamb, Lion and King.

Jason is also an author of "Trusting God to See You Through".

Enjoy the Crabb Family at Their Best

Once you've heard the Crabb family you will want to listen to all their songs. Their songs are fresh, move on the spirit and inspire one to make changes in their life. Another thing that is so special about this family is their love for people and having the desire to serve the Lord in every aspect of their lives.

Each member of the group contributes in various ways besides singing. Whether they play an instrument or write their own songs, the listener comes away from each session feeling better. To help you comprehend what I mean you have to experience this for yourself, so here are a few that I really enjoy and I hope you will too. (Music is also available in MP3 or iTunes.)

To really get the whole experience of the family ICON group in its fullest you may want to view them in concert. The Gaither's DVD is just one of the many concerts you can watch of the entire family, the siblings or just featuring Jason Crabb.

On this particular Gaither DVD called "The Best of the Crabb Family" Bill Gaither interviews the family about thier cross culture inspired songs. Mr. Gaither sits down with the father, Gerald Crabb for a personal up close moment where he shares his testimony about how he came to know Jesus.

This isn't your usual "southern gospel music" but inspired, spirit filled music that is like none other.

Experience the Crabb Family for Yourself

Watch the Crabb Family on Video

It's been many years since I first heard the Crabb family perform. Even since that time their music has always inspired and encouraged me no matter the circumstance. For this reason I wanted to share some of those favorites that have helped lift me up over and over.

The first video is when the entire family including the parents sang together. I love how their voices blend so sweetly. The rest are some of the songs that are featured on the CD's I suggested. Please take a listen and you'll see why the Crabb Family has won the hearts of millions.
