Their voices unite creating goosebumps due to the simplicity of the music, yet deeply meaningful and spiritual message.
“I love this song because I feel like it encompasses so much about Christmas,” Underwood noted in a message. “You have this love aspect of it, it just feels like Christmas, it just makes you smile, and to say ‘Hallelujah’ is just beautiful.”
The song, written by John and Toby Gad, is No.1 on the Billboard Hot Christmas Songs chart, replacing Carrie’s “Favorite Time of Year” as it now sits at No. 2.
John’s composition of “Hallelujah” has gained the musician his first No.1 spot on the Hot Christian Songs chart.
However, he and Gad share the No. 1 spot on Billboard‘s Christian Songwriters chart, as they both rise 2-1 on the collaboration of the hit song.
‘My Gift’ Continues to Shine
Carrie’s Christmas record debuted at No. 1 on the Top Christian Albums and Top Country Albums charts in October, and it seems fans can’t get enough of the 11-track album My Gift.
Underwood is continuing to sit at the top three slots on Hot Christian Songs. Her rendition of “Silent Night” is continuing to stay at No. 3. She has made history by being the first artist to have the top three positions on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart for multiple weeks.
On Dec. 19 at the Global Citizens awards ceremony, John and Carrie performed a duet of the song they recorded together. While Legend is on the piano and Carrie stands on the stage, she begins to beautifully serenade the audience with her voice. John joins her vocally, crooning along with her throughout the duet.
Passion’s created with just a simple melody played on the piano. When their voices combine, they create a harmonious celebration.
The song rises 3-2 on the Hot Christian Songs chart with 5.5 million U.S. streams. 1.4 million in radio airplay audience, and 4,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It concurrently debuts at No. 96 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100.
