Hillsong United's 'Wonder' album becomes audio streaming record breaker

Another Major Hit

THE LATEST album by modern worship phenomenon Hillsong United, 'Wonder' has become the highest audio streamed album in Christian music history with more than 4.4 million streams. Also, for the first time in the Christian genre every song from the project debuted on the Top 100 On-Demand Audio chart with eight of its 12 songs charting in the Top 20. 'Wonder' also debuted at number one on both iTunes and Billboard's Top Christian/Gospel Albums charts. When asked what he hopes fans will get out of the album, frontman for the band Joel Houston told Billboard, "Hope is an interesting word. We believe there is hope in the world amidst all of the devastation. But as for our album - we always just try and enjoy and trust the process, making music we like and hopefully other people do as well. . . It is the dream of any artist that their music reaches new listeners, that the story or message goes out and impacts more and more people." CR
