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.
