In fact, these two artists alone make up over half of Spotify’s Top 10 list of most listened to Christian songs over the past year. Spotify published the list on Fox News.
Daigle’s popular song You say – unsurprisingly – was No. 1 in the past year, while Help was n ° 6 and Find a child No. 8. You say was No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart for a record 75 weeks.
Hillsong United had three Spotify Top 10 songs in the past year: No.3. Oceans (where feet can fail), No. 5 So will I (100 billion X), and n ° 10 Whole heart (hold me now).
Meanwhile, Hillsong Worship’s Who you say i am was no.7.
Elevation Worship, the worship ministry of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC, had two songs in Spotify’s Top 10: # 4 come to the altar and n ° 9 Do it again.

Daigle told CCM Magazine in 2018 that she wrote You say after feeling “overwhelmed” after her first Dove Awards.
“This song for me was just a reminder of my identity,” she said. “It was a reminder that I know when I’m weak he’s strong – so how can I change that and make it part of my day-to-day life? When I feel inadequate, how come there are always those times when I feel like God is stepping in and replacing my inadequacies? This whole song was [written] so every day I would go on stage and remember – no, it’s the truth, it’s the truth, it’s the truth. Don’t let the confusion overwhelm you. Do not let yourself be buried in error. Remember to stabilize the heading, to stabilize the heading.
