Hillsong Worship’s ‘let there be light’ rises on Billboard Charts

let there be light., the latest from Hillsong Worship, claimed the top spot on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums Chart alongside claiming No. 7 on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart and No. 14 on the Billboard 200 Chart upon its release. The latest LP is a bold prayer over this world today, that the light that has shone on us through the Gospel be the light we now bear and shine forth as the Church of Jesus Christ. Following their Sept./Oct. Worship Musician cover story, critics have called let there be light. “one of the best albums of the year” (The Christian Beat), “a powerful album filled with great music, strong declarations of faith” (Church Mag) and “so memorable… every track has a foundation of great songwriting; authentic and beyond cliché, this music is directed to God as the prayers of His people, and His glory is celebrated” (Worship Leader).
