That is awesome news. It is good to see the title track from the latest album went number one. It is a real awesome song and I love it. It also features Kevin Max which is also real awesome too. The music video is real awesome too. I also seen a behind the scenes video with Duncan Phillips the drummer from the Newsboys telling how they made the God's Not Dead music video. If you check it out then go to hearitfirst.com then find it under Newsboys or just browse the videos till you see a picture of Duncan with a picture from the God's Not Dead music video. It is a good video and I liked it.
