Seph Schlueter’s Debut Hit ‘Counting My Blessings’ Tops Christian Airplay Charts

By Michael Apr 10, 2024

Singer-songwriter Seph Schlueter’s rookie single “Counting My Blessings” rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart (dated April 13), becoming the first leader for the 24-year-old from Sunbury, Ohio. The song increased by 15% to 6.4 million audience impressions March 29-April 5, according to Luminate.

Concurrently, the track dominates Christian AC Airplay for a second week, up 3% in plays.

Schlueter — who signed with Sony Music’s Provident Entertainment in early 2023 — co-authored the song with Jonathan Gamble and Jordan Sapp, the latter of whom also produced it. It’s the lead track from Schlueter’s debut eight-song album of the same name, released in March.

“To see how much of an impact this song has had with people all over the world is so moving and inspiring,” Schlueter tells Billboard. “The whole reason I do this is so that people would come to know Jesus more, and hearing the stories of how God has used ‘Counting My Blessings’ to encourage, remind and touch listener’s hearts, particularly through radio, has been an incredible blessing beyond what I could have imagined.”

Schlueter places the first freshman single atop Christian AC Airplay since Ben Fuller’s “Who I Am” led for a week last November. Meanwhile, “Counting My Blessings” ranks at No. 4 on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Christian Songs list. It drew 1.6 million official U.S. streams and sold 1,000 during the tracking week.

Schlueter is currently touring with Matt Maher and Lizzie Morgan. They make their next stop in Naperville, Ill. on Thursday (April 11).

Brown Clark’s ‘Good’ Week

On Billboard’s Gospel Airplay tally, Maurette Brown Clark’s “I See Good” becomes her third No. 1. The song, which she solely wrote, increased by 8% in plays. It’s from her eight-song set He Loves Me, released last November.

Brown Clark last led as featured on James Grear & Company’s “I Wanna Say Thank You,” for a week last November. Before that, “It Ain’t Over (Until God Says It’s Over)” ruled for five frames in 2009. Her first of eight entries, and five top 10s, “One God,” hit No. 2 in 2007.
