Hillsong Worship reigns for the 17th week at #1 on Billboard's Hot Christian Songs with the Brooke (Fraser) Ligertwood led and co-written "What a Beautiful Name." The song is buoyed by its 9 percent rise to 2.1 million U.S. streams, returning to its No. 2 peak on Christian Streaming Songs (3-2).
The longest running Hot Christian Songs No. 1 belongs to Hillsong Worship's sister act Hillsong United, whose hit "Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)" dominated the chart for 61 weeks between 2013 and 2016.
"The reach and impact of "What A Beautiful Name" has been encouraging and truly humbling," says Brooke Fraser about the success of the single. Adding, "We seek to bring songs that can genuinely connect the hearts of believers with the heart of God through worship, and the connection this song seems to have made can only be by the grace of God. With the release of the "What A Beautiful Name" EP we are hoping churches from across denominations and stylistic sensibilities can discover a version that uniquely speaks to their context and can equip them to lead this song whatever their setting, whether they have a full gospel choir at their disposal, a DJ set up or simply an acoustic guitar."
