Nashville, Tenn. — God’s Not Dead, the best-selling 2011 Inpop recording from GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys, has been certified Gold® by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), it was recently announced.
The band’s sixth career Gold® album, God’s Not Dead was produced by Seth Mosley and features the blockbuster title-cut. The song garnered an RIAA Gold® single certification earlier this year; topped the CHR chart for seven consecutive weeks; and inspired the Pure Flix hit film, God’s Not Dead. The album also features Newsboys’ signature spin on such worship favorites as “Your Love Never Fails,” “Forever Reign” and “Mighty To Save,” among others.
“God’s Not Dead is a project that helped launch a movement, and Inpop Records is honored to have released this landmark recording,” said Mark Lusk, president, Inpop Records. “We congratulate the Newsboys and celebrate a milestone of utmost significance in the landscape of today’s music industry.”
Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys are one of the most influential bands in Christian music today with more than 8 million units sold, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations and multiple Dove Awards, along with numerous other accolades. Among the genre’s top touring artists, Newsboys co-headlined NewSong’s Winter Jam Tour Spectacular—the #1 tour in the world, first quarter—earlier this year, in addition to their own “We Believe Tour," which saw sellouts across the country.
Newsboys' latest recording and debut collection of hymns, Hallelujah For The Cross, released last month and features the legendary group’s take on nine classics and one new selection.
