Multi Grammy, Stellar, and Dove award winning artist Israel Houghton’s new album, Covered: Live In Asia, is doing phenomenally well on the charts.

The Lakewood worship leader, 44, is No. 1 for the third consecutive week, according to Billboard’s Top Gospel album chart.

Despite the early success of Houghton’s seventh album, which also debuted at the top of the Christian albums chart, he, “We don’t do what we do for the accolades, awards, or sales. Our rewards are ultimately found in the lives of people.”

While some obsess over albums sold and chart position, Houghton says, “I don’t fret about how it’s going to do on the radio or will it go to the number 1 spot on Billboard. Most of our records end up selling for long periods of time. They are not just a quick release and you forget about them.”
