Christafari’s ‘Reggae Worship’ Jumps to #1 on Billboard Reggae Albums Chart

9 months after being released, album jumps to #1 – making Christafari the first Christian band in Billboard history to top the Reggae chart.
Nearly nine months after it was first released, Gospel reggae pioneers Christafari have jumped to #1 on this week’s Billboard Reggae Albums Chart with their latest album, Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival. While Christafari is no stranger to the Top 10 on the Reggae chart, this marks the first time in Billboard’s history that a Christian band has secured the top spot.

On Reggae Worship: A Roots Revival (Lion of Zion Entertainment), Christafari reworks classic hymns, reinterprets many of today’s top worship anthems and gives fans a handful of original worship songs that truly capture the band’s signature sound.

“We’ve been blown away by the positive response from our fans and the press for our latest album,” says Christafari’s founder and frontman, Mark Mohr. “To think that just a year ago we were asking our fans to help fund this album and now we are #1 on the Billboard chart! It’s an honor to be the very first Christian artist to ever top this mainstream chart-and to do so with a worship album is even more incredible!”

Christafari has spent much of the last year on the road, touring internationally including stops in Fiji, New Caledonia, a month-long tour of Brazil and the United States, including a just completed 24-city Hawaiian island tour that resulted in 531 souls saved. In the coming months, the band will return to Hawaii and Brazil, and perform throughout the continental USA.

The band was recently featured on ABC Family’s The 700 Club, and TBN filmed a live concert appearance in Hawaii for an upcoming special broadcast.

With over a half million albums sold worldwide, Christafari is the all-time top selling Gospel Reggae artist. The band continues to tour worldwide, performing more than 100 shows each year reaching more than 50 countries. For more information, visit http://www.christafari.com.

BEC RECORDINGS ANNOUNCES THE RE-SIGNING OF KUTLESS

Since signing to BEC Recordings in 2001, Kutless has been transformed from a new rock band to a staple artist in the industry that has multi-format, top-charting hits and has sold millions of records. BEC Recordings is proud to announce that Kutless has re-signed and will continue their ministry along with the Seattle-based label.

“Kutless is a perfect example of the type of artists we want to continue to work with at BEC Recordings: ministry-minded, quality music and a strong work ethic,” shares Brandon Ebel, President of Tooth & Nail Records / BEC Recordings. “We are thrilled that we are officially continuing this relationship with Kutless as one of our flagship artists for BEC. We have been there from the beginning with the band and are excited to see what the future holds.”

The Portland, Oregon-based Kutless has released seven studio albums (Kutless 2002, Sea of Faces 2004, Strong Tower 2005, Hearts of the Innocent 2006, To Know that You’re Alive 2008, It Is Well 2009, Believer 2012) on BEC Recordings. Kutless has two RIAA Gold-selling albums for Strong Tower and Live From Portland. The band has had 12 No. 1 radio singles across all formats including their major hits “Strong Tower,” “What Faith Can Do” and “Carry Me To The Cross.”

In 2012, Kutless released their most recent studio release, Believer, to much media and sales acclaim debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Christian & Gospel Chart as well as No. 1 on the kutless-bec.

Launched by original members Jon Micah Sumrall (lead vocals) and guitarist James Mead, the band formed first as a modern rock/worship band at Warner Pacific College in Portland in 2000. Kutless signed to Tooth & Nail/BEC in late 2001 and released its self-titled debut the following year, which went on to become the fastest-selling debut in the label’s history.

About BEC Recordings:
Originally launched as a more commercially minded side of Tooth & Nail Records in 1997, BEC Recordings has since expanded with its own identity into one of the music industry’s most celebrated imprints. BEC Recordings was placed on the map with artists such as Jeremy Camp, KJ-52, and Kutless, when the label began to receive significant CHR or AC radio attention. BEC artists soon became a staple at both formats. Outside of breaking through in multiple radio formats (a trend that continued with Seventh Day Slumber, Manafest, The Museum, Adam Cappa and many more) BEC also branched out to audiences from all walks of life, as evidenced by its increased presence in literally every facet of pop culture (including movie soundtracks, major retailer advertising campaigns and countless package tours).
