'Having a No. 1 means we have an opportunity to connect. What an amazing thing,' the band marvels.
We the Kingdom earns its first No. 1 on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart, as its debut entry, "Holy Water," rises 3-1 on the March 14-dated list, up 8% to 12.4 million impressions, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
The act is comprised of brothers Ed and Scott Cash; the former's daughter Franni and son Martin; and friend Andrew Bergthold.
"We are so overwhelmed that a song that we started in our basement studio about our own journeys has been able to reach the ears of so many people," We the Kingdom tells Billboard in a group statement.
