CCM singer and songwriter Stacie Orrico has been honored by Billboard magazine. Her signature hit "(There's Gotta Be) More to this Life" has been voted by the magazine as one of the Top 100 Greatest Choruses of the 21st Century. The song locks in the chart at #76. The chart celebrates the top 100 greatest refrains that drive every successful karaoke night, concert encore and office desk hum-along for this century.
This is what Billboard says about the song: "The biggest smash from Orrico's lone hit album finds the crossover Christian pop artist dashing through a sonic obstacle course of a chorus - crawling, leaping and scaling the heights of her guitar-drum-and-bass backing. It's a soul-heavy vocal performance that demands out-of-breath exertion, echoing Orrico's lyrics about soaring above earthly pleasures."
"More" was taken from Orrico's self-titled second studio album released in August 2003. Written by Sabelle Breer, Kevin Kadish, Lucy Woodward, Harvey Mason Jr. and Damon Thomas, and produced by The Underdogs, "More to Life" is a predominantly pop song, that is influenced by rock and contemporary R&B.
The song was also a worldwide success. The song peaked in the top five in three countries, which included New Zealand at number three, Norway at number two and number five on the US Billboard Pop Songs chart. "(There's Gonna Be) More to Life" is also featured of the 2005 film Robots,"(There's Gotta Be) More to Life" peaked at number thirty on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Orrico's biggest single to date in the country. The song also peaked at number five on the US Billboard Pop Songs, and number thirty-one on the US Billboard Adult Top 40.
