We’ve been given so many new songs over the years! And now, we have a new song book. Have you taken time out to learn them?
Some of our Family’s personal favorites are the original songs featured on JW Broadcasting.
They come in such a wide array of song genres: from country to broadway to indie and they all glorify Jehovah and his happy people in a variety of musical styles
This game is a fun way for you, your family and friends to learn the Original songs together! Or maybe even to show off your amazing singing skills.
The game is called Joyful Voice because singing praises to Jehovah should always bring our hearts joy.
We hope you and your family and friends will enjoy this game! Its a great group game for christian gatherings or a fun activity you can include in family worship if you like! You’ll know all the new songs in no time!
How to Play Joyful Voice
The object of the game is to sing the first stanza or chorus of each song. Alternatively, for very young ones, you can encourage them to hum the tune to the song until they’re big enough to learn the words- after all this about learning the words AND melody to each song in a fun twist!
The game has no points, but for a fun twist friends can use the rating sticks included to give each person a rating depending on how well they knew the song or sang it in the alternate musical genre. If you decide to pick an overall winner, there’s a handy score sheet included that will allow you to do so.
Oh! I almost forgot: included in the game are 2 sets of cards. Genre cards feature different musical styles you can sing a song in and Title cards feature then names of most of the songs that appear on JW Broadcasting.
You’ll pull a genre and a title card to determine which song you’ll sing and in what musical style. Some friends who helped us test this game found that it was an educational experience in helping their young ones learn about new music genres.
Also included is a printable card (pictured above) that you can download and assemble if you’d like to invite friends over to join you for some musical fun!
