“Cory Asbury’s “Reckless Love” has been #1 at Billboard’s NCA Chart since April 9, 2018. And AC MON and IND since April 23. Mediabase charts even longer. Our team is so grateful.”
The Bridge Program Director Denise Harper, received a note on the morning of July 5, 2018 from one of the promoters she works with each week. The contents of the note were nothing less than extraordinary.
For an ‘A’ artist to have a song with that kind of longevity at #1 would be incredible. ‘Reckless Love’ is just one song from an artist no one had heard of before a Programming Summit in March 2018. For Cory Asbury to reach this point in his budding musical career is nothing less than God’s hand directing ‘the right song at the right time’ to millions of people all around the world.
Of course, being performed by Bethel Worship and Jesus Culture hasn’t hurt. But Denise also got a crazy notification from YouTube over the weekend… Justin Bieber had just released his own version of the song as well. “I think its just gonna get bigger!” says Harper.
And check out this video from Doughboy Stadium at Fort Benning where roughly 2,000 Army Soldiers gathered to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As the words of the song ‘Reckless Love’ by Cory Asbury were sang, the Holy Spirit moved through the crowd, encouraging the men and women present, and causing some to give their hearts to Jesus for the very first time!
…what God will do with the little we offer up… only He knows.
You can watch the entire song performed LIVE by Cory Asbury, at Heaven Come Conference 2017 with Bethel Music, and hear the Story Behind The Song in this video.
