In a report by Nielsen Music, Passion's "Worthy of Your Name" is at the number one spot for Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart which has sold over 15,000 album units. The album consists of 11 live performance from Sean Curran, Kristian Stanfill, Hillsong United, Crowder and Chris Tomlin. These were recorded during the 20th annual conference of Passion 2017 last January 2 to 4.
"There was so much prayer and expectation as we were writing these songs," Stanfill tells Billboard. "We take very seriously the opportunity to lead 55,000-plus 18-to-25 year olds. More than just words and melodies, this album captures God moving in the hearts of His people. You can hear and feel it, the sound of the Jesus Generation lifting up their King."
Meanwhile, tobyMac hit his eight number one spot on Christian Airplay which impresses more than 10 million audiences.
