Kelontae Gavin celebrates a new milestone with two #1s on the Gospel radio charts, as his single “Hold Me Close” hits #1 on both the latest Billboard Gospel Airplay Chart and the Mediabase Gospel Chart. The double #1s for “Hold Me Close” also mark another milestone as Gavin’s first #1 hit single at Gospel radio, following his previous Top 5 hit Gospel radio single “No Ordinary Worship,” which was featured from his debut album The Higher Experience.

Kelonte Gavin gets #1sThe singer has continued to capture attention as a Gospel star on the rise since he first became a viral sensation on YouTube as a teen in 2014, singing the Gospel classic “I Won’t Complain” in high school. “Hold Me Close” is the lead single from Gavin’s upcoming second album The N.O.W. Experience, which is out Friday, March 5th. The young worship leader, songwriter and musician co-wrote “Hold Me Close” with Marquis Boone, a love letter from his heart to God to get closer to Him.

Kelontae Gavin says of this #1 milestone and the song, “Wow!! I’ve got to give thanks to God for giving me this gift and being able to serve Him and other people with this song. We’ve all been to a place in life where we needed God to hold us close. Whether you’ve experienced a break up or break down, divorce, diagnosis, or heartbreak, I’m asking God to hold you a little tighter. Thank you all for your love and support!”
