I have always enjoyed the sounds from Israel Houghton singer. Why just read through some Israel Houghton lyrics and you get a feel for his worship songs. I know you can purchase some of Israel Houghton's accompaniment cd's for the church vocalists and musicians. Have you been to an Israel Houghton concert or have some of his albums?

 Just in case you missed it, here a few of my favorite Israel Houghton songs
with chord charts from previous posts:

1. Again I Say Rejoice

2. All Around

3. Alpha and Omega

4. Friend of God

5. No Limits

6. Say So

I'd like to share a few more Israel Houghton songs with you.
