In just about two months of its release, “The Blessing” has amassed 13 million YouTube views, 17 million Spotify streams, making up to US and World top viral songs on Spotify. This is a great success for this beautiful and prayerful song.
Also, “The Blessing” is currently the No. 1 Song at Worship Together, MultiTracks, Praise Charts, and Song Select. On radio, the single has already moved into the Top 20 on Christian Airplay Chart.
Kari was emotional about the impact of the song when she spoke with the media
“I have cried so many times as I’ve watched different people all over the world declaring the blessing over their families, their churches and their nations,”
“God is a God of His word and this song is straight from scripture. I love how He never changes and is always with us and for us. That brings so much peace, especially in a season of disappointment, uncertainty, and fear like we have all been waking through this year. ‘The Blessing’ is the truth that we can declare daily over our lives, families, and others. So grateful.” – She added.
Kari also hints of her massive preparations for the release of her very new album scheduled for release later this year.
