Singers, Songwriters

Keith and Kristyn Getty occupy a unique space in the world of Christian music today as preeminent modern hymn writers. In re-inventing the traditional hymn form, this husband-and-wife team originally from N. Ireland has created a catalogue of songs that teach Christian doctrine as they cross the genres of traditional, classical, folk, and contemporary composition. Their hymns are sung the world over.

“In Christ Alone” (penned by Keith and long-time writing partner, Stuart Townend) holds the #1 position of most-frequently-sung hymns in UK churches for the past 9 consecutive years. It was voted the #2 best-loved hymn of all time in the UK. According to CCLI, it is estimated that 40 to 50 million people sing “In Christ Alone” in church services each year, including throughout Asia.
