Since their formation in the late '80s, Newsboys have had twenty-four #1 radio hits, 5 gold records and they have sold over 6 million albums. They have won five Dove awards, started their own record label (Inpop Records) and have been featured in more secular media outlets than most Christian bands. In fact, the band has been so popular in the mainstream that in 2002, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame paid tribute to Newsboys by presenting a special concert featuring a Newsboys set (Newsboys: Thrive - From The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame).
'80s dance rock is the sound that Newsboys' "Something Beautiful" from Go
brings to the mix.
Coming from the Gold certified Take Me To Your Leader
, "Reality" has something of a disco feel with a sweet chorus line.
Family Force 5's Solomon Olds (aka Soul Glow Activatur) remixed the popular song, giving it a very unusual and unique sound.

The title track from this Gold certified album was the first Newsboys song I ever heard, so I had to include it on the list since it made me a real fan.
This cover of Desperation band's song may have been better placed on adoration
, but it is still a beautifully done song.
Coming from Step Up to the Microphone
, the first album Newsboys released after the departure of John James, "Entertaining Angels" features Peter Furler and bassist Phil Joel both doing vocals.
