Jekalyn Carr climbs to No. 1 on Billboard Gospel Airplay with "You're Bigger"

Jekalyn Carr is celebrating an enormous amount of success. Not only can she add a #1 Billboard Top Gospel Albums (The Life Project) and #1 Billboard Gospel Digital Songs (“You’re Bigger”) to her credits, but also— after 13 consecutive weeks at #2— her first #1 on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay Chart.

That’s quite an accomplishment for the young gospel singer who was also being named among the Power 100 by EBONY MAGAZINE as one of the most influential people in the world. She was on the same list as Beyonce, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Lebron James, and Quincy Jones to name a few.

Listen to “Bigger” below:

Carr burst onto the scene in 2013 with the poignant and powerful Billboard Top 5 single, “Greater Is Coming,” as an independent artist, which showcased a vocal ability and intensity far beyond her 15 years. Jekalyn Carr was only 15 when she first broke into the Billboard 200 album chart. In 2012, The West Memphis-based artist had a hit with the Top 10 single “Greater Is Coming,” which became the title track of her debut full-length in 2013. The album climbed into the Billboard 200 and debuted at number three on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart. In 2014, her sophomore album It’s Gonna Happen peaked in the Top 10 on the Gospel Albums as well.
