(Nashville, Tenn) Oct. 12, 2011— Response, the latest release from critically acclaimed worship artist Phil Wickham (Fair Trade Services), made a grand entrance this week peaking at No. 1 on iTunes® Christian/Gospel Albums Chart and debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart, No. 4 on the Christian Soundscan Chart and rising as high as Top 25 on iTunes® overall chart.

The reviews continue to pour in giving praise to Wickham’s latest effort from critics and bloggers alike:

“For his fourth studio effort, Phil Wickham channels the psalmists of old, voicing appreciation and adoration for the different aspects of God that are seen throughout our lives and circumstances. Partnering again with Pete Kipley, Wickham also brought in Brown Bannister to co-produce. This collective approach carried over to the songwriting, too, with multiple collaborations representing more than just Wickham's heart.”-Rhapsody.com

“Filled with 11 songs useful in congregational worship, this is the Phil Wickham release worship leaders have been waiting for.” -Worship Leader Magazine

"The hype is well substantiated; Phil Wickham is one of the few “praise & worship” artists who bring musical and lyrical creativity to their songs." -The Waking Blog

"You will be inspired to worship along with this gorgeous, serene music as you contemplate the goodness of God and His glory and power." -Jay's Musik Blog

"'Response' is a beautiful album telling us of God's wonderful mercy and grace, showing God's character and love for us." -Edge Of The Plank Blog

"One word sums up my feelings about this album: angelic. Phil Wickham knows how to craft words and make them sound more beautiful than anything you have ever heard." -The Christian Music Review Blog

Radio stations across the U.S. are jumping at the chance to play Wickham’s latest hit single, “At Your Name (Yahweh, Yahweh).” With nearly 50 stations already on board including K-Love, KSBJ/Houston and Joy FM/St. Louis, each week more and more networks are joining to support the single. Additionally, the crowd-pleasing track debuted at No. 30 on AC Monitored this week, landed in AC Indicator’s Top 25 and No. 2 on Soft AC/Inspo.
