Phil Wickham is, at his core, a humble and sincere artist who writes songs and worships God using the medium of music. It is with that brush that he paints images of a loving and creative God across the canvases of listeners' hearts and minds. The evidence of this gift has been apparent on all of his critically acclaimed efforts: Phil Wickham (2006), Cannons (2007),Heaven & Earth (2009), Response (2011) and The Ascension (2013), which debuted at No. 2 on the SoundScan Christian Albums Chart and in the Top 40 on the Billboard 200.
His Gold-certified single "This Is Amazing Grace" gave Wickham his first career No. 1, holding the top spot on Billboard's National Christian Audience Chart for 13 consecutive weeks. The honors continued as the single was named Billboard's 2014 No. 1 Christian Airplay Song of the year and BMI's 2015 Christian Song of the Year. In addition to its success at radio, the song has become a beloved anthem in the modern church, increasing Wickham's recognition as a gifted artist and songwriter with a true heart of worship.
