Phil Wickham‘s “Living Hope” was recently certified Gold by the RIAA, and FairTrade Services celebrated the achievement with Wickham in Nashville.

“Living Hope,” the 2019 GMA Worship Song of the Year winner, was a Top 10 radio hit and has been a staple in churches across the world, currently No. 7 on the CCLI chart. “Living Hope” was co-written with Bethel Music’s Brian Johnson, who also co-penned Wickham’s new single “Battle Belongs.”

“It is always an honor to partner with great artists who produce great art,” said FairTrade Services’ Jeff Moseley. “Phil fits that bill and adds a layer of impact that has a broad reach. We wholeheartedly congratulate Phil on this recognition of the impact he and this song have had.”

“Living Hope may be my favorite song I’ve ever written,” said Wickham. “I still get excited to sing it in a set. What an honor it is to write and sing a song about Jesus that others around the world have made their own. Incredible to see it become a certified Gold song.”
