Oh my lord I love this song; help me find it again!

I just heard the most amazing song on a streaming radio station from France! The song was in English, but there was no identification, and googling the bits of lyrics I could understand got me nowhere. Can you help me figure it out?

Lyrics bits: "J-E-S-U-S," various bits about loving your neighbor, "we needn't specify" (that, along with spelling out J-E-S-U-S, seemed to be the refrain), something about a recipe that involved chocolate. That's all I've got. The male singer had a very distinctive warbly voice that distorted the words so much that at first I didn't realize it was English, and there were other folks in the background (including one guy who shouted "Praise the Lord" at the end). The song was very upbeat and had lots of horns (yay! I love horns!). I heard it on FIP
. I could not figure out how to find a playlist on their site; if you can, that would be helpful. (I'm listening via the link on their main page that says "Ecoutez le direct".)
Despite all the Jesus references, it did not strike me as a religious song, but rather a song referencing religious tropes in a non-religious way.
It is an incredible song and using my AskMe question for this is totally worth it.
