Soul (1993)

Updated: Mar 24


Soul is the fifth studio album by Christian rock singer -songwriter Margaret Becker, released on May 18, 1993 by Sparrow Records. Soul shows a movement towards Euro-pop, influenced by former Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox and producer/artist Charlie Peacock. This is the third album Becker and Peacock have collaborated on. The ballad "Say the Name" has been ranked at number 99 from CCM Magazine in their 2006 book The 100 Greatest Songs in Christian Music.

Former Allies lead singer Bob Carlisle provides guest vocals on the track "Keeping Watch."


The album peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart. In 1994, Becker earned her fourth and final Grammy nomination for Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album and was nominated for four Dove Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year and Rock Recorded Song of the Year for "The World I See In You." A music video was made for the further single "Keep My Mind."
