Singer Bryan Andrew Wilson 's latest radio hit "Overflow (Let Your Spirit)" swam from #17 to #14 on this week's Billboard Gospel Airplay chart. It also makes its debut at #20 on the magazine's Hot Gospel Songs hybrid chart that combines digital sales, streaming and airplay. "I'm really encouraged by the response and support of gospel radio for the song," says Wilson. "The song came to me during my morning devotions. I was praying for God to bring me a divine overflow and then I ended up praying that same prayer for others and it turned into a melody."
Wilson was recently inspired to start a sunrise prayer meeting on Periscope that has grown to around 10,000 weekly participants. "I'm totally overwhelmed by God," says Wilson. "People are joining the prayer sessions from around the world - London, Jamaica, all over the USA. Prayer is the best way to set the pace for your day. We come together and pray for each other's needs and the needs of the world and it's just been an incredible experience." Others who want to pray, can meet on Periscope @IamBryanWilson around 7:15 AM EST each morning or by searching for the hashtag #prayHisscope.
