April 2003 in CCM

Please try not fall asleep when reading this month's list of releases.  It is not the most exciting batch of music that you will ever find, but there are always gems among the rocks.  The first worship project from the Newsboys is sure to be a hit on 4-8, but be forewarned that it reportedly recycles some previous material.  On that same day, Point Of Grace releases a 2-disc compilation featuring all 24 of their #1 hits, with 1 new song.  On 4-22, Sparrow records has a massive release date featuring reissues, Best-Of's and Compilations.  If you don't previously own much of this music already, be sure to check out some of CCM's pioneers.
