Christian album reached no.3 in American chart, ahead of Drake and Ariana Grande

On 22nd September, her album Look Up Child placed third on it's first week of entry whilst also topping every Christian chart category.

The album, released on 7th September, sold more than 115,000 album copies in a week and her single You Say currently tops the Christian Digital Songs sales, Streaming Songs, Christian Airplay and Hot Christian Songs charts, while the album has slipped to 16th.

The song made DJ Zane Lowe's Beats 1 list in association with Apple Music's World Record playlist. 

Her first album, How Can It Be, released in 2015 reached number 1 in the Christian album chart in America and stayed there for 11 weeks. 

She told Jim Asker, Christian and gospel chart manager at billboard: "I don't shy away from singing about my faith,

"I think it conveys honesty, and people see authenticity. More people are going to relate to my music if it's sincere. I believe that wholeheartedly. That's how you reach people that might not have felt that [the Christian genre] was their home before."

A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
