(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) March 12, 2010–Sparrow recording artist Britt Nicole tops the Christian radio charts this week with her current single, “Walk on the Water.” The song, which climbed to No. 1 on Radio & Records’ CHR Indicator chart, is the second consecutive CHR hit from Britt’s Aug. 2009 release, The Lost Get Found.
Britt’s sophomore project, The Lost Get Found, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart, No. 62 on the Billboard200, went straight to No. 1 on iTunes’ Christian/Gospel Top Albums chart, and peaked in the Top 10 on iTunes Top 100 albums chart. Additionally, the album’s lead single, “The Lost Get Found,” rocketed to No. 1 on the Radio & Records CHR chart, spending eight consecutive weeks in the top position while climbing to No. 1 on iTunes’ Christian/Gospel Top Songs chart. The success of “Walk on the Water” merely follows precedent of what has been Britt’s biggest project to date.
“God has been so faithful to me, so first and foremost I want to thank Him for giving me songs that help others,” says Britt. “I have never been so moved by people calling into the stations and sending me letters on how ‘Walk on the Water’ has helped them. Thank you to my EMI team and radio for helping me to carry this message of hope to so many that I could have never reached on my own.”
Program Director at Colorado’s WAY-FM, Jeff Connell comments,” Britt Nicole’s music speaks right to the heart of our listeners…they tell us that…time and time and again…and when she met and prayed with hundreds of our listeners…the connection they have with her went from something a little abstract on the radio…to something very personal in their lives. She is truly one of a kind…”
