While recording with Spotify at Sound Stage Studios in Nashville, Tenn., Phil Wickham was surprised by FairTrade Services and long-time management, BrickHouse Entertainment with an RIAA certified platinum (1 million single sales & streams) plaque for his landmark song, "This Is Amazing Grace." The plaque was presented to Wickham while recording exclusive songs for the Spotify Singles program at Sound Stage Studios on Music Row.
The surprise plaque presentation precedes the anticipated release of Wickham's Living Hope, the artist's first, full-length, new album in two years. Dropping Aug. 3, the album's title track, co-written with Bethel Music's Brian Johnson, has already garnered support from over 30 stations, including K-LOVE, JoyFM/St. Louis, Star99.1/NYC and Sirius XM. "Living Hope" and other tracks from the record have been featured in key streaming playlists such as Amazon Music's Fresh Christian, and Spotify's Top Christian and WorshipNow playlists.
