Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday September 02ND 2018:
- “Who You Say I Am” – Hillsong Worship [# 1 last week / 6TH week on chart]
- “Do It Again” – Elevation Worship [2 / 18TH]
- “Grace Got You” – MercyMe [3 / 22ND]
- “Everything” – TobyMac [4 / 4TH]
- “Known” – Tauren Wells [5 / 4TH]
- “Surrounded (Fight My Battles)” – Michael W. Smith [- / 1ST]
- “You Say” – Lauren Daigle [- / 1ST]
- “Only Jesus” – Casting Crowns [- / 1ST]
- “Wherever I Go” – Dan Bremnes [9 / 9TH]
- “Even Then” – Micah Tyler [10 / 3RD]
It’s Week 81 overall and the 15TH and final week of the Summer of 2018. I’m taking all 15 weekly hit music charts, all 24 hits, and putting them through the ole number cruncher (Excel spreadsheet). Tomorrow on a special Tuesday blog entry I’ll be presenting the Top 10 hits of the entire summer from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend here in the U.S.
Now back to this week where Michael W. Smith (he turns 61 next month) scores his first Top 10 smash on my chart in 27 years. “Place In This World” was a huge smash on Mainstream Top 40 radio during the Summer of 1991. In fact it finished as the # 13 hit of the entire summer (on my end-of-summer chart for that year).
Almost 5 years ago I saw Michael W. Smith LIVE in concert here in South Florida. He performed at the same event as Switchfoot, Israel & New Breed, and Mandisa. I would love to see him again.
Here he is with his new smash, “Surrounded”.
