Hezekiah Walker's "Every Praise" certified Platinum

"Every Praise" the hit single by Grammy Award winning gospel artist, Hezekiah Walker, has now achieved platinum status. The song which was certified gold in December 2019, has now been certified Platinum by the the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). A song is certified Platinum when it has achieved sales and streams of 1,000,000 units 

The rapid achievement from gold to Platinum was majorly due to Hezekiah' performance of the song at 
Minneapolis memorial service for George Floyd. A lot of people added the song to their personal playlists during one of the most challenging times of social unrest in recent history.

“Every Praise” is featured on Walker’s 14th album Azusa: The Next Generation, which was released in 2013. The song had a 26-week #1 run at Gospel radio, and was on the Billboard Hot Gospel Songs chart for an incredible 67 weeks. In 2019, “Every Praise” was named Gospel Song of the Decade by Billboard Magazine.

Hezekiah Walker is a Gospel music pioneer, and the traditional sound and energetic style of his Love Fellowship Choir has influenced a generation of great singers and ensembles. His passion for choirs led him to launch HezHouse Entertainment as a platform for keeping progressive choir music alive. The first two artists signed to HezHouse, which is distributed through RCA Inspiration, are Vincent Bohanan & SOV and Kevin Lemons & Higher Calling. Walker says that both of these groups embody “the strength of the new millennial sound of choirs.”

Hezekiah Walker is senior pastor of Love Fellowship Tabernacle, with locations in Brooklyn, New York and Bensalem, PA. He is also a Bishop in the Pentecostal Church through which he oversees 28 churches in the U.S. and South Africa. The Brooklyn native is a dedicated New Yorker and a seminal fixture in his home borough. He will break ground soon on HezHouse Apartments, an affordable and supportive housing development by Hezekiah Walker & Love Fellowship Tabernacle, Brooklyn Community Housing & Services, and Alembic Community Development.
