Billboard is teaming up with eOne Music to bring some of the biggest gospel songs of the decade to the masses in the form of a double disc album.
“Billboard #1 Gospel Hits,” is a 20-track album that will feature some of the biggest names in gospel music and their chart topping records from 2010 to the present day. People will recognize songs from Kirk Franklin, Hezekiah Walker, Tamela Mann, Marvin Sapp, Andraé Crouch, Ricky Dillard and more on the album scheduled for a Jan 13 release.
The release will be packed with nothing but number one hits such as Franklin’s “Smile”, Hezekiah Walker’s “Every Praise” and Ricky Dillard & New G’s “Amazing.”
Phil Thornton, Vice President and General Manager of Urban Inspirational at eOne Music, says his record label is happy to work with Billboard on the unique project.
