GRAMMY-nominated Jeremy Camp was recently honored for his 32 No.1 radio singles since his debut 10 years ago.

During the past decade, Camp has spent 175 weeks at No. 1 across numerous formats, including National Christian Audience and Rock. Earlier this month at the Christian Music Broadcasters Momentum conference in Orlando, Fla., Camp was presented with a plaque commemorating his achievement from Tooth & Nail/BEC Recordings President Brandon Ebel.

"I'm so honored to see how the Lord has used the songs on radio to impact lives," Camp said. "I'm grateful for all of the radio programmers, on-air personalities and the BEC radio team for all that they have done to share these songs with the listeners."

Camp also performed the debut radio single "Reckless" from his upcoming 2013 studio album. Just released, Christmas: God With Us (Tooth & Nail/BEC Recordings), is his first full-length Christmas project, featuring songs such as "Jingle Bell Rock," "Joy To The World" and "Mary Did You Know."

In November and December, Camp will also be a part of The Story tour, featuring a full choir and orchestra along with Casting Crowns' Mark Hall, Natalie Grant, Matthew West, Nichole Nordeman and Selah.

Meanwhile, Audio Adrenaline, a Christian rock band that formed in the late 1980s but retired in 2007, has re-formed with an altered lineup in a move that is a renewed effort by the group to help orphans in Haiti and around the world. Founding members Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss will be joined by new vocalist Kevin Max, formerly of dc Talk.

The band's first single, "Kings and Queens," will be released in November with the new album slated to release March 2013 from Fair Trade Services, a new label for the band.

Net proceeds from the album's sales will go to Hands & Feet Project, a nonprofit organization started in 2004 by Audio Adrenaline members that is dedicated to helping orphaned and abandoned children in Haiti.
