The Global Church’s Beloved Worship Collective Sees Christian Radio’s Fastest Growing Single in Church History; Releases Dedicated EP
LOS ANGELES (March 31, 2017)— Today, following their unprecedented rise to No. 1 earlier this week on the Christian charts, Australia-based Hillsong Worship released a 6-track What A Beautiful Name EP, now available in all digital music stores. Second only to Hillsong’s own “Oceans” by Hillsong UNITED as the most-streamed worship track weekly, “What A Beautiful Name” continues to report over 16k units per week, on track to overtake the former by week’s end. The influential worship band that has helped shape praise & worship over the last two decades continues to be sung by an estimated 50 million churchgoers worldwide with “What A Beautiful Name” in worship rotations across the globe.
“The reach and impact of “What A Beautiful Name” has been encouraging and truly humbling,” says Brooke Fraser about the success of the single. Adding, “We seek to bring songs that can genuinely connect the hearts of believers with the heart of God through worship, and the connection this song seems to have made can only be by the grace of God. With the release of the What A Beautiful Name EP this week we are hoping churches from across denominations and stylistic sensibilities can discover a version that uniquely speaks to their context and can equip them to lead this song whatever their setting, whether they have a full gospel choir at their disposal, a DJ set up or simply an acoustic guitar.”
The dedicated EP What A Beautiful Name features six versions of the hit single off Billboard No. 1 album Let There Be Light, including a gospel version and the original live recording from Hillsong Conference in Sydney.
