Topping the charts once again further solidifies James Fortune as a mainstay in the gospel music industry.

Featured on Fortune’s album, Dream Again: Live From Rock City, the single “Nobody Like Jesus” featuring Lisa Knowles-Smith undoubtedly pulls listeners up or pushes them forward to a place of purpose and possibility.

The original recording of Fortune’s single, “I Am” taken from Dream Again, peaked at #1 on the Billboard Gospel National Airplay Chart for several weeks.

James Fortune shared with Billboard, “I am in awe of God and humbled that He continues to choose me. I am thankful for God’s favor on my life and I don’t take any of it for granted. He added additionally, “As grateful as I am for this #1 song; I am overwhelmed to think there are now 12 #1 songs that He’s given me as a writer, artist or feature. It’s simple for me: I am on an assignment to tell the world about a man who knows all your flaws, but still loves you, will use you and has plans for you, in spite of it all. That’s reason enough to Dream Again!”

Fortune has released 11 albums and appeared on now 12 #1 Billboard Gospel singles as either a writer or featured artist. A partial list of James Fortune’s most notable #1 singles include: “I Believe” (Artist/Writer); “I Need Your Glory” (Earnest Pugh; Writer); “I Trust You” (Artist/Writer); “Life & Favor” (John P Kee; Featured Artist) and “You Don’t Know” (Zacardi Cortez; Writer).
