During a virtual town hall meeting with Provident Music Group’s staff, President/CEO Terry Hemmings surprised Tauren with a plaque signifying that his emotional hit single “Hills & Valleys” has reached platinum status.
“Well, I wasn’t expecting this,” Wells shared in an Instagram post. “Somehow these songs find their way into your lives and I can’t tell you how amazing, humbling, and special that is to me. It’s truly amazing that this song broke through and entered the lives of so many people. I know that ‘Hills and Valleys’ has changed my life on many levels. Thank you all so much for supporting this song.”
Wells has received support from ALL-STAR athletes as well as GRAMMY award-winning artists. Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey welcomed Tauren on their 2017 “All the Hits Tour.” And just last month, NBA superstar Steph Curry disclosed that “Hills and Valleys” was playing in the hospital during his son’s birth, while NFL luminary Russell Wilson described Tauren as “one of my favorite artists ever.” Tauren released his second full-length album Citizen of Heaven earlier this year, and it is available for stream, download, and purchase here.
