44,155 World Wide Streams
Hello everyone. Today is the last day of the third quarter of 2019. One of the things I like to do is check my Spotify stats when I reach the end of another quarter.
Praise God, the streams continue to stay in the tens of thousands. The map above represents all of the countries where my recordings are being streams. The darker the green, the more streams. Brazil leads the way with over 35K streams. American streams are over 3K.
As I have said many times, this is not something I “brag” about because I had nothing to do with it. This was not something I did out of cleverness and now everything is working out. No, this is one of the miracles in my life. And it is a miracle that has continued to bless Pearl and I for several years now.
Is it JUST Hymns?
You know, when I first posted these hymn recordings and when they first began getting so many streams, I thought it was something less honorable than if my friends were to have as many streams as this. But I thought about this attitude recently. No, these are not my original compositions. And I think this is what I was thinking…was that true success needed to be with originals. But when you look at how many people find their success in recording Haydn, Bach, Mozart, etc. – when you look at it that way, having a successful hymn recording actually is a pretty big deal.
