The TOP 25 Catholic artists of 2016

Cecilia Music - published on 11/22/16

Fan favorites from around the world, brought to you on the feast of St. Cecilia.

One year ago today, on the feast of St. Cecilia, Cecilia Music was born.

And she was born with a twofold mission: promoting Catholic artists, and more broadly, promoting music that is good, true, and beautiful.

For one year we have been featuring the top Catholic artists from across the world, including your favorite seasoned veterans and bright, new up-and-coming singers and songwriters.

And now it is time to recognize your favorites, the best of the best, in the first Cecilia Music Awards.

Their languages and musical styles vary, but each of them draws from the riches of our human experience and the depths of our faith creating beautiful music that inspires the soul.
