Chris Tomlin is the #1 artist in Christian music this week. He has the #1 single and another song from the same album entering the chart.
The official Top Christian Hits Chart is compiled each week by checking and averaging Christian charts and top play lists from all over the U.S. such as Billboard, Cashbox and Air 1 to find the most popular songs.
"Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)," from the latest Chris Tomlin release, Burning Lights, debuted eight weeks ago and it remains at #1 on five other charts. This tune shines and is a big part of why the album is Tomlin's first to make it all the way to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 Chart.
We first saw this song back in December. This version of "It's Not Over (When God Is In It)" features Aaron Lindsey (there is another version on the CD that features James Fortune and Jason Nelson). No matter where you are in your walk with Jesus, this song will speak to you and remind you that as long as God is in your life, it's not over.
It only took eight weeks for "Kings & Queens," the first single release and title track from the new March release, to make it to the top spot in the charts. Kevin Max says that the song is "THE orphan anthem" and Mark Stuart calls it "an amazing depiction of the kids' story."
Another new tune, "Just A Dream" comes to us from Wilmington, North Carolina's Sumerlin. This is a band that is making waves with their talent and getting a lot of attention.
Moving steadily up the charts, in week #6, "Your Love Never Fails" keeps getting spins. The band's version of the well-known worship song comes from God's Not Dead and it gives us a pop edge with a lot of warm fun.
The second single from Burning Lights shows us a side of Chris Tomlin that we haven't seen thus far ... dance music. The Martin Smith tune is new territory for Tomlin and shows us a lighthearted and fun face.
Debuting this week, the piano driven "Nothing Is Wasted" is stunning in its simple beauty.
"Need You Now (How Many Times)," which we first saw hit the charts in October, is off of Plumb's latest release Need You Now. Reminding us that when we can't mend what is broken in our lives and cry out to God, He is there, this song will minister to your spirit.
