Worship Goes Mainstream With Performance Of Kari Jobe’s ‘Love Came Down’ On American Idol

Last night on American Idol, one of the top 6
contestants, Angie Miller, chose a Kari Jobe song
to perform as her “Song I wish I had written”
selection. Miller’s performance of ‘Love Came
Down’ from Jobe’s 2012 release ‘Where I Find
You’ resulted in a standing ovation from the crowd
and all four judges. Following Miller’s performance
last night, Jobe’s song quickly climbed to the top of
the iTunes Christian & Gospel singles chart,
and the album is currently at No. 6 on the iTunes
Christian and Gospel album chart.
“I have watched American Idol for 12 years,
and it was so much fun to have ‘Love Came
Down’ from my album, ‘Where I Find You’ on
there this week,” shared Jobe after watching the
performance. “I met Angie a year ago and was
blown away by her talent and love for Jesus!
Excited for her!”
Miller also shared on Twitter last night to Jobe, “I
watched you perform ‘Love Came Down’ quite
some time ago and fell in love with it. Thank
you for inspiring me so much! Love you!”
