NASHVILLE, Tenn.-Newsboys' iconic anthem, "God's Not Dead (Like A Lion)," the title-cut from the group's 2011 best-selling Inpop recording, has been certified Platinum® by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), it was recently announced. Signifying single sales in excess of 1 million units, the award marks a career milestone for the GRAMMY®-nominated mega group and is one of the first Platinum® single certifications in Christian music this year.

Written by Daniel Bashta, "God's Not Dead" was a multi-week #1 hit and helped inspire the blockbuster Pure Flix film of the same name. Both the God's Not Dead album and single earned RIAA Gold® certifications last year.

"'God's Not Dead' is among Christian music's most significant songs of the decade," said Mark Lusk, president, Inpop Records. "Newsboys' impassioned performance of Daniel's powerfully-penned statement of Truth is not only a defining song in Inpop's history, but it continues to encourage people around the world to stand for Christ."

Newsboys have sold more than 8 million units, amassing eight Gold® certifications, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), the band is nominated for two 2015 Billboard Music Awards-including Top Christian Artist-and they are among the leading nominees at the upcoming K-LOVE Fan Awards later this month.
