Chris Tomlin at Piano

Whose songs are played more than Katy Perry’s each week? Chris Tomlin, king of the sing along. Eric Marrapodi and Tom Foreman share a bit more about the worship songwriter, whose latest album topped the US Billboard 200 charts in January. In CCLI’s last two reporting periods, Tomlin had the No. 1 most-sung song and five of the top 25 (I wrote more about this and other thoughts here). Tomlin: “I strive for trying to write something that people can sing, that people want to sing, and that people need to sing.”

Sadly, this is not the Onion – A website that collates stories that could feature in news satire website “The Onion”… except they’re all 100% true.
