  • She’s charting at #6 and #8 on the Hot Christian Adult Contemporary and Hot Christian Songs charts (Only the World). And charting at  #3 on the Hot Singles Sales Chart.    That’s Mandisa, whose debut album “True Beauty” will be released on Tuesday.   Check out her  my space  to hear some samples and buy her singles…
  • “Now 25”, the latest Top 40 compilation album,  debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200.   Carrie Underwood (Before He Cheats), Daughtry (Home),   Kelly Clarkson (Never Again) and Elliott Yamin (Wait For You) all have cuts on the album.   It’s an Idol Bonanza! Yee haw…
  • Bucky Covington and Kelly Pickler both move up the charts this week.   The other Idols either stayed about the same, or fell down the charts a bit. Not counting compilations, there are no Idol albums  in the Billboard 200 Top 10 this week…
