Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir Reaches #1 on iTunes Chart

BrooklynTabernacleThe world renowned Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir added a new accolade to its forty year history of feats and accomplishments earlier today. Its new digital CD “Love Lead The Way” reached #1 on iTunes Christian/Gospel chart. The album also entered iTunes’ Top 100 Pop Albums chart – sandwiched in between the latest albums by country star Eric Church and rock band The Stokes. It’s the six-time Grammy Award winning choir’s 27th recorded project and the first on its own label, Brooklyn Tabernacle Music.

The legendary choir was in the news this past January when it performed a majestic new rendition of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” on a program featuring James Taylor, Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson at President Obama’s inaugural swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the U.S. Capitol with an audience of over 800,000 spectators on the ground and over a billion watching on television screens around the world. The choir’s soul-stirring update of “The Battle Hymn” is featured on the new fifteen-song set alongside its current Christian AC radio single “Faithful To The End.” The album was produced by choir founder Carol Cymbala and music director Jason Michael Webb. A physical CD release date is pending.

The 300-voice choir is a blend of ethnic and economic backgrounds, with members ranging from lawyers and doctors to former drug addicts.  Over the years, the choir has performed at major venues such as Radio City Music Hall and Madison Square Garden. Their amazing legacy includes six Grammy Awards, seven Dove Awards, two #1 Billboard charting CDs and over four million albums sold. Visit for more information on the choir.
