Casey J Scores First Number One Album

Casey J-The Truth CD Cvr-900x900Congratulations to worship leader Casey J, whose debut project The Truth debuts atop this week’s Billboard Top Gospel Albums chart. The 12-song set features her smash single “Fill Me Up” which also celebrates its 9th week atop Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart. The Truth also comes in at #5 on the Billboard Top Christian/Gospel Albums chart and #62 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart. In addition, the project was the #1 album on Amazon Music’s Gospel Albums Bestsellers chart for a full week.

The former school teacher is the first signee to Marquis Boone Entrerprises and is in partnership with Tyscot Records.

“We are so thankful and excited at Marquis Boone Enterprises that The Truth debuted at number #1 today on Billboard,” says Casey J’s manager, Marquis Boone. “We were so optimistic about this artist and project and I believe the proof is in the pudding. Thank you to everyone that purchased the album and helped make this young new artist’s dream come true.”

The 12-song set of songs was recorded live during a standing room only concert this past January at the Fresh Start Church in Duluth, Georgia where Casey J serves as worship pastor.

“When I grow up, I want to be like Chrisette Michelle or India Arie,” she chuckles. “Although, they are not gospel artists, they have a similar style as me. People and worship are my heart. I want the environment of my performances to be about the worship and not so much about me personally or my artistic persona. I admire Israel Houghton because his music is for everybody.”
