I really enjoyed hearing Kris sing on American Idol, but that was NOTHING compared to hearing him sing praise music!

The God of this City lyrics and music are written and originally performed by Bluetree, a worship band from Belfast, Ireland whose music ranges from rock to electronica. It is the title track of their critically acclaimed album. The song has also been covered by Dove Award winning Christian worship leader and songwriter Chris Tomlin.
Bluetree members wrote the God of this City lyrics and music while touring and performing on a mission trip in Pattaya, Thailand where the band performed at a club and brothel called the Climax Bar in the city’s Red light district. Originally a song for the city of Pattaya, it has become popular in churches all over the world.
The Kris Allen God of this City video and performance has brought even more prominence and attention to the inspirational song as the video has gone viral in the aftermath of his American Idol victory. Prior to becoming the season 8 winner, the 23-year-old Kris Allen, Conway, Arkansas was known as a worship leader at New Life Church and on the campus at University of Central Arkansas with Chi Alpha Campus Ministries.
