Russ Lee has one of the most distinctive voices in music. He’s best known for his work with the group Newsong. He was their lead vocalist from 1994 – 2000 and then after recording three solo albums and a best of record he returned to Newsong in 2009 and has been with them ever since. Before joining Newsong, Russ was the lead singer for the group Truth.
I’ve known Russ for 25 years or so. What impresses me, and most people who spend more than 10 minutes with him, is his enthusiasm for his faith. When it comes to sharing the Gospel Russ is something of a wild man, unable to contain himself and the joy that seems to seep from every pore.
His first solo album, “Words In Time,” was arguably his most successful. It had two big radio hits, “Live What I Believe” and “I Smile.” I couldn’t find a concept video for either of them, but I did find some fan generated videos which I share below.
