TIME magazine heralded Chris Tomlin as the “most often sung artist in the world” as his music has inspired and uplifted an entire generation of believers. Along the way, Chris has scored 17 number-one singles on the radio, placed 29 top-ten hits (more than any other Christian artist), sold more than 12 million albums with 5.6 billion career global streams, won a Grammy, three Billboard Music Awards, 28 Dove Awards, became a two-time BMI Songwriter of the Year honoree and an ASCAP Songwriter of the Year. In 2016, he was named one of only four artists ever to receive the Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 billion digital radio streams, alongside Justin Timberlake, Pitbull, and Garth Brooks. Chris is also the first Christian artist to reach the billion streams threshold on Pandora and was presented with their BILLIONAIRE award. As one of the most successful Christian touring artists today, Chris has sold out venues everywhere including New York City’s Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, Red Rocks in Denver, and more. Chris recently set a career attendance record with an unprecedented concert at LA’s Banc of California Stadium.

In this TCB exclusive, Chris shares why he said yes to the opportunity of hosting season three of Jesus Calling: Stories of Faith, premiering on UP Faith & Family (the leading streaming service in uplifting entertainment) on April 13 and on the cable network UPtv on April 16. The inspirational series, based off the bestselling devotional book Jesus Calling (Thomas Nelson), will share stories of success, loss, heartbreak, and redemption told by people of faith from all walks of life that will inspire and encourage. In addition to this hosting opportunity, Chris talks about how his, and others’ stories have been woven throughout his career and can be currently seen in his Stories Of Worship Tour (running through the end of April). Finally, Chris reflects on the success of his newest radio single, “Holy Forever.”
