KariJobeMajestic-webKari Jobe’s Majestic (Sparrow Records/Capitol Christian Distribution, March 25) debuted at No. 1 on three Billboard charts: Christian Contemporary Album, Praise & Worship and Christian Digital Album. The GRAMMY-nominated worship leader’s third album also debuted at No. 4 on the Overall Digital Album chart and No. 12 on the Billboard Top 200, which is her second Top 15 debut in the publication’s main chart.

Jobe’s new album showcases a collection of congregation-friendly tracks that she hopes will become new anthems for a generation hungry for God to move in a fresh way. Majestic is also available as a full-length live concert DVD.

“When I die, if I was known for one thing, I would want to be known for [helping people] fall more in love with Jesus,” Jobe said. “So I don’t care what song I sing, if the heart of it is that people fall more in love with Jesus and they understand the heart of God for them.”

Some of Jobe’s most popular worship anthems, including “Revelation Song” and “Healer,” were written by other songwriters. For the songs on Majestic, Jobe reached out to like-minded worship leaders who share her passion for writing songs for the church and who have become personal friends through their common vision. Releasing a collection of songs where she’s personally been a part of creating every track was a dream come true for the worship leader.
