Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Newsboys' "God's Not Dead (Like A Lion)" single, from its 2011 Inpop Records project God's Not Dead, has been certified GOLD by the RIAA. Selling more than 140,000 tracks since January, "God's Not Dead (Like A Lion)" has experienced a phenomenal resurgence fueled by the popularity of Pure Flix Film's GOD'S NOT DEAD movie, in which Newsboys performs the song.

"God's Not Dead (Like A Lion)" was a No. 1 radio hit on the Billboard AC Monitored chart two years ago and has consistently been the top-selling track from Newsboys' God's Not Dead album. Yet it was the box office release of GOD'S NOT DEAD, which has earned more than $59 million to date, that pushed the single over the 500,000 certified sales mark.

Consequently, "God's Not Dead (Like A Lion)" can now be counted among an elite list of Christian tracks ever to secure such status. The song is included among those by prolific artists like Bob Carlisle, Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Skillet, and Switchfoot.

Mark Lusk, president/general manager for Inpop Records comments, "Inpop Records is so grateful for the spotlight given to our music because of the GOD'S NOT DEAD movie. In particular, Newsboys' God's Not Dead project and single have found an expanded audience thanks to the film's massive exposure."

Additionally, both the God's Not Dead record and God's Not Dead-The Motion Picture Soundtrack, released March 4, have benefited from the movie's momentum as well. The former continues to be the No. 1 Christian catalog album this year, while God's Not Dead-The Motion Picture Soundtrack holds its Top 10 position on iTunes' Top Soundtracks chart. The soundtrack has also produced a No. 1 radio single with Shane Harper's "Hold You Up."
