Phil Wickham

Phil Wickham’s highly anticipated new full length album Children Of God will debut on April 22, 2016. Marking his first LP in three yearsChildren Of God comes on the heels of the impactful single “This Is Amazing Grace,” which was certified RIAA Gold and named BMI’s Christian Song of the Year as it topped radio charts. This powerful anthem was recently recognized as the most-sung worship song in the North American church by Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI). Children Of God is filled with songs sure to follow in those footsteps and become new worship favorites. Heralded by the single “Your Love Awakens Me,” the pre-order of the new album is available now on PhilWickham.com and on iTunes and Amazon Music March 11th.

Laboring for a year to craft his newest release, Wickham shares of the deeply personal story and intention behind the record. “A year and a half ago I lost my voice and was forced to have surgery on my vocal chords with the risk of not being able to sing professionally again. During the difficulty of that season, God spoke the simple yet massive truth into my heart that He loves me. That He loves us. That we are first and foremost His children. That whatever may come our way we are His children. That whatever we may be faced with, we are His. Many of these songs were written out of this new found sense of identity.”

Phil Wickham and This Is Amazing Grace

Phil Wickham has been around for a while. His acclaimed single, “This Is Amazing Grace,” was recently honored with RIAA Gold Certification for both sales and streams of the song off of his 2013 project, The Ascension. Reaching No. 1 on Billboard’s National Christian Audience Chart, “This Is Amazing Grace” received top honors at the 2015 BMI Christian Awards for Song of the Year and earned Phil Wickham three nominations at this year’s 46th Annual GMA Dove Awards, including a nod for Song of the Year. The hit single was the most played song on Christian radio for 2014, topping Billboard’s 2014 Christian Airplay Song Year End Chart at No. 1. In addition to sales and radio success, the song is No. 2 on the US chart of Christian Copyright Licensing International, recognizing it as one of the most-often-sung worship songs in the church today. My church, The Chapel at CrossPoint in Buffalo, New York, sings the song often.

“I am blown away with how the Lord has used ‘This Is Amazing Grace’,” says Phil Wickham. “For the song to reach this achievement is such an honor and I’m so grateful.”

Look for the highly anticipated Phil Wickham project Children of God to release in April 2016.
