Charles Jenkins & Fellowship Chicago‘s “He’ll Make It Alright” rises 2-1 on Billboard‘s Gospel Airplay chart (dated Feb. 27).
The song, which Jenkins wrote solo, becomes the fourth No. 1 for the act, among eight top 10s.
“No. 1 means your message in the music is being spread widely and that’s the joy,” Jenkins tells Billboard. “In such a complex time in history, I am excited to write an uplifting song to remind people of God’s ability and faithfulness.”
The group last led Gospel Airplay with “Grace,” featuring Le’Andria, for four weeks beginning in December 2017. Its first entry, “Awesome,” became its first No. 1, for 16 frames starting in June 2012. “# War” then led for five weeks beginning in August 2015.
Also on Gospel Airplay, Rich Tolbert Jr., earns his second consecutive career-opening top 10 as “Never Be Defeated” climbs 12-9. His first entry, “Miracle Worker,” reached No. 6 in October 2019.
