Zak Williams & 1AKORD Rise To #21 On Billboard Radio Chart With Popular Praise Chant "Jehovah Jireh"
Philadelphia, PA -- Jehovah Jireh is one of the most widely used names for God. Jehovah Jireh means "the Lord will provide" and through faith, believers trust God on this promise. Stellar Award-nominated choir Zak Williams and 1AKORD (Zak & 1A) have given us a simple praise chant sweeping across the country called "Jehovah Jireh". His single is a steadfast reminder of this promise.
"Jehovah Jireh" is a remake of the original written by Kevin Pringle (Wilmington Chester Mass Choir, Russell Delegation, GMWA Mass Choir). Zak & 1A have taken the single to #21 on the Billboard BDS Gospel Airplay Chart this week. "Jehovah Jireh" is one of only three songs from choirs on the current BDS Top 30 Gospel Radio Chart.
