The difference between #1 and #2 this week on Billboard/BDS Christian Hot AC/CHR was 2 spins. TWO SPINS! Indie pop act Joshua Micah officials hits #1 this week with his debut single "Parachute" edging out "Love Broke Thru" from TobyMac. Congratulations to Joshua on a massive accomplishment for any artist...but for an indie artist on a debut single? This is bananas. We are forever grateful to Jeremy Louis at Boost 101.9 in St. Louis for first checking out the song and bringing it to a music meeting and for Mike Couchman (PD at Boost 101.9 and Joy FM) for connecting Joshua with 55 Promotion while being a consistent champion for this song.
It's always amazing to be this close to the top of the radio charts. It's even more amazing to be this close when the artist is fully independent. Joshua Micah is making the music he was made to create. His producers (Hatch Music = Joshua Schiffman and Benjamin Bright) are bring out the best in him and offering something fresh (also, DOPE). God is doing this...we're joining him. It's been fun!
