BIRMINGHAM, Alab. – Dove Award nominee Wendy Word + forgiven has recently seen success with their current radio single.
The song – “You & Jesus” – has broke on to several leading industry charts. It will debut at #61 on the upcoming October 2009 edition of the Singing News Top 80 chart. In addition, the song also debuted on the Christian Voice Magazine Top 100 Southern Gospel chart this month and has been a steady fixture on the GospelMusicTimes.com Top 100 Fan Chart. This week – the song landed at #21 on the popular chart.
Wendy Word said, “This song has such a personal message to me. I’m very excited to see that radio has supported the song as much as they have. People seem to really like it everywhere we sing it.”
“There’s a really strong and catchy quality about this song that most radio singles don’t have,” mentioned Chris Unthank of SouthernSpinRadio.com. “Our listeners are absolutely eating this song up. If a station hasn’t picked this song up yet – they are definitely missing out on one of the strongest cuts of the year.”
“You & Jesus” was written by Wendy Word and was inspired by the life of her grandmother. The song is being pushed to radio by Jim Stover of Crossroads Music.
Wendy Word + forgiven are currently recording vocals for their new mainline recording. The new album is being produced by Dove Award winning producer Kevin Ward and should be available by the end of the year.
The popular duo recently signed a booking agreement with Thomas Spradlen and Spradlen Promotions.
