NASHVILLE, TN 9/16/20 – One of the biggest songs of Phil Wickham’s career, “Living Hope” was recently certified Gold by the RIAA. Since its release in 2018, the 2019 GMA Worship Song of the Year recipient was a Top 10 radio hit and has been a staple in churches across the world, currently No. 7 on the CCLI chart.
FairTrade Services recently celebrated with Wickham in Nashville, with President Jeff Mosley remarking, “It is always an honor to partner with great artists who produce great art. Phil fits that bill and adds a layer of impact that has a broad reach. We wholeheartedly congratulate Phil on this recognition of the impact he and this song have had.”
“Living Hope may be my favorite song I’ve ever written,” Wickham commented. “I still get excited to sing it in a set. What an honor it is to write and sing song about Jesus that others around the world have made their own. Incredible to see it become a certified Gold song.”
Wickham’s latest new single “Battle Belongs,” is available now, and like “Living Hope,” was co-written with Bethel Music’s Brian Johnson. The track is a powerful proclamation that in Jesus we stand on the side of a battle that has already been won.
