Meet Casey J  Gospel’s New

Gospel music’s latest singing sensation Casey J reclaims the #1 spot on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart this week with her power hit “Fill Me Up.” This makes the 4th week atop the survey for the Atlanta native. The soul-stirring anthem anchors the praise and worship artist’s forthcoming debut album “The Truth” (Marquis Boone Enterprises/Tyscot Records) that releases April 21, 2015.

The twelve-track live recording was recorded at Fresh Start Church in Duluth, GA where Casey J serves as its praise and worship leader.  Gospel star Jason Nelson guests on the warmly uplifting “Have Your Way” while Casey J’s 84 year-young grandmother Dorothy Mae Choates joins her for the hymn “No Not One.” There are uplifting praise tracks such as “Let It Be Known,” “Better” and “I’m Yours” that incited dancing and hand raising among members of the audience. There are also touching ballads such as “Journal” and the dreamy “Your Heart.”

Here is the song that is taking the charts by storm:
