In today's world it is hard to believe it but it is true.
The number one album in the U.S. is TobyMac's "Eye On It."
The number three album and number one in the Hip Hop Rap category is Lecrae's "Gravity."
Album is an antiquated term since no one actually buys vinyl albums anymore. It is MP3 downloads and CDs but album still has a warm feel to it.
"So what?" you ask. What's so special about a singer and a rapper with two of the top three spots on one chart and the top spot on the other chart? What's so special about that indeed?
They are Christian albums by Christian artists.
And they are the number one sellers.

It may not be your kind of music but it sure is someone's kind of music. It is a whole lot of someone's type of music. If I had not read it in several places I wouldn't have believed it.
In a world that according to the news seems to have gone crazy, all is not lost and neither are all lost.
If you can lay down at night knowing that you had made someone's life just a little bit better, then you know that you had a good day.
