    Christian Artists Reach Major Landmark Success!

    PI ladies, I know many of you are fans of the contemporary Christian band Casting Crowns, so you’ll be excited to learn this news!

    Casting Crowns recently reached a major milestone in their music career and in the Christian music industry as a whole. They are in line to win their first career RIAA certified double-Platinum album for their 2005 debut album “Casting Crowns.” I recently wrote a post on 5 Amazing Songs That Help Me Clear Up Moments of Doubt, which featured the song “Who Am I” from this album.

    Only seven other Christian CDs have reached the multi-Platinum ranking in the past, including “Satellite” by P.O.D, “The Beautiful Letdown” by Switchfoot and “Almost There” by MercyMe.

    I’m so excited about the direction in which Christian music is going. Not only is it making an impact in the Christian music industry, but it’s also making visible and successful advances in the secular music world, which means that the word of God is spreading.

    For example, Lecrae’s newest album “Gravity,” released on September 4, not only debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, but it’s currently sitting at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 100 Hip-Hop Albums. And three songs from the album have found a consistent spot on the iTunes Top 10 Hip-Hop chart, including No.1 and 2. And Lecrae was featured in Time, a mainstream magazine. How awesome is that?

    Dear Hip-Hop, this didn’t happen because of swag, drug references, or stripper anthems. #Godisgood” (Lecrae, Instagram).

    Lecrae said it all in that Instagram post above. A musician doesn’t have to resort to singing about sex, drugs and violence in order to be successful in the rap industry. Lecrae sings about his love for Christ and God’s word, and guess what? It’s popular!

    Another Christian musician we all love is tobyMac, and he too has made record-breaking strides in both the Christian and secular music industries. His album “Eye On It” reached No.1 on Billboard charts. This is the first Christian album in 15 years to achieve this status.

    Art is about expressing what is in your heart, what you love and what you struggle with. The things I’m going through can’t be that different from anyone else, but faith plays a big role in my life—big enough to sing about it (tobyMac).

    Casting Crowns, Lecrae and tobyMac are amazing musicians, and they all have inspiring and strengthening messages to spread. As Christians, we already have been blessed to hear them. Because of these achievements, millions who don’t listen to Christian music now get an opportunity to experience its awesomeness.

    I believe God is working through these musicians and that their messages will be heard by more and more people, eventually leading them to Christ.

    I’d like to send out a prayer to all these artists and others who are glorifying God with their music. Lord, continue to use these artists as instruments for spreading your word, not only within those who already are devoted to you, but also to those who don’t know you yet.

    Ladies, who is your favorite Christian musician?
