Praise as a form of social interaction expresses recognition, reassurance or admiration. Praise is expressed verbally as well as by body language (facial expression and gestures).
Verbal praise consists of a positive evaluations of another’s attributes or actions, where the evaluator presumes the validity of the standards on which the evaluation is based.
Praise could be any type of music that glorifies God regardless of the style or what types of instruments are used. However, “Corporate Praise Music” is commonly found in contemporary churches of today.
Lyrically, it features generally short and easy to sing (and remember) choruses that repeat several times. This is part of what makes the style perfect for corporate worship because even people who aren’t familiar with a particular song can sing along with ease after hearing one or two repeats of the chorus.
