"Raise A Hallelujah," the anthemic heart-cry of praise which has quickly been embraced by listeners around the world, is the latest single from GRAMMY®-nominated Bethel Music to top Christian radio charts. Recently landing at #1 on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart for two consecutive weeks, "Raise A Hallelujah" was co-penned by and features Bethel Music worship leaders Jonathan David and Melissa Helser. 
 
Nominated for a 2019 Dove Award for Worship Recorded Song of the Year, "Raise A Hallelujah" is featured on Bethel Music's Dove-nominated VICTORY live recording. Inspired by the 2 Chronicles story of King Jehoshaphat and the unlikely victory won by sending worshipers to the front lines of battle, the project is nominated for two Dove Awards: Worship Album of the Year and Recorded Music Packaging of the Year. 
 
Written while Bethel Music CEO Joel Taylor's son, Jaxon, was critically ill with an E-coli virus, the chorus of "Raise A Hallelujah" came to the Helsers as they prayed for Jaxon. The song soon became a "weapon of worship" for the Taylor family, singing it over Jaxon for several weeks until he was restored to health. 
 
Since its release, testimonies about the chart-topping song have poured in from around the world, including Levi Floyd's miraculous story. After nearly drowning in the ocean, Levi lay lifeless on the beach while paramedics worked to revive him. His sister began to sing "Raise A Hallelujah," and Levi--who had been without a pulse for five minutes--started breathing again as the bystanders worshipped. Read Levi Floyd's complete testimony here.   
 
In celebration of the song's international impact, Bethel Music recently released an acoustic video of "Raise A Hallelujah." Featuring Jonathan David and Melissa Helser, the clip was filmed in the couple's hometown of Sophia, North Carolina.
