Last night on American Idol, one of the Top 6 contestants, Angie Miller, chose a Kari Jobe song to perform as her “Song I wish I had written” selection. Miller’s performance of “Love Came Down” from Jobe’s 2012 release Where I Find You resulted in a standing ovation from the crowd and all four judges.
Following Miller’s performance last night, Jobe’s song quickly climbed to the top of the iTunes Christian & Gospel singles chart, and the album is currently at No. 6 on the iTunes Christian and Gospel album chart.
“I have watched American Idol for 12 years, and it was so much fun to have ‘Love Came Down’ from my album, Where I Find You on there this week,” shared Jobe after watching the performance. “I met Angie a year ago and was blown away by her talent and love for Jesus! Excited for her!”
Miller also shared on Twitter last night to Jobe, “I watched you perform ‘Love Came Down’ quite some time ago and fell in love with it. Thank you for inspiring me so much! Love you!”
Produced by Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, Chris August) and Matt Bronleewe (Natalie Imbruglia, Josh Wilson), Where I Find You released with chart topping street week numbers at No. 1 and No. 10 on Billboard’s National Christian, Gospel and Top 200 Charts. The radio singles “We Are” and “Steady My Heart” saw much success at AC Monitored and Indicator charts as well as the National Christian Audience chart. The album also received much praise from a wide range of media outlets including the New York Times. Where I Find You was nominated for a GRAMMY® earlier this year marking the first GRAMMY-nomination for Jobe.
