Gospel heavyweight Hezekiah Walker has achieved a new personal best as an artist as his hit single “Every Praise” (RCA Inspiration) sits at No. 1 on the Billboard gospel chart for the 14th straight week.
“ ‘Every Praise’ [by]Hezekiah Walker will go down in the archives of great inspirational songs as one of the best. This song makes you feel joyful. It brings a smile to your face. It exudes happiness,” says Elroy R. C. Smith, inspiration format director at Radio One Inc. ”Furthermore, I love this song so much that I purchased it recently on iTunes. Congratulations to RCA Inspiration and Hezekiah Walker for one of the greatest songs to date. “
Walker recently released a fun new flash mob video for “Every Praise,” which is featured on his album titled Azusa: The Next Generation.
Of course, Walker is no stranger to success. His previous No. 1 single “Souled Out” spent 13 consecutive weeks atop the gospel songs chart.
“Every Praise” is more of what we have come to expect from an artist of Hezekiah’s caliber,” says Geo Bivins, general manager of RCA Inspiration. ”Spending two or three consecutive weeks at No. 1 is noteworthy, 14 is quite the accomplishment and speaks to his connection with the fans and music consumers.”
Walker’s other top-five singles include “Lift Him Up,” which peaked at No. 3 in 2006; and “Faithful Is Our God,” which held the No. 2 position in 2007.
