Behold The Lamb, the latest offering of gospel singer and songwriter, Yemi Alafifuni, has peaked at number one on ASTEP 4WD Official UK Charts for March 2021.
In the Contemporary Worship March Chart, Yemi’s Behold The Lamb topped the category ahead of Christ Our Hope In Life And Death by Steph Macleod featuring Sandra McCracken.
Rheo Collective’s You Created All Things placed third and is followed by You Don’t Have To Lose Heart by Vineyard Worship and Daena Jay and My Saviour and My God by Rich and Lydia Dicas.
Yemi’s song was inspired by a supernatural experience and a biblical event which led him to create a cinematic, inspiring and simply timeless song that connects listeners to new rhythmic experience.
According to the award-winning singer, the journey to this song started when he experienced a supernatural event sometimes in 2017 at a personal retreat which left him with a hunger to see Jesus, face to face.
He explained that this event led him to search for answers and then he stumbled on the story recorded in Revelation 5 where an event in heaven was recorded by John, ‘The Beloved’ about the Lamb of God. For months unending, Yemi studied this story and on February 15th, 2018, he began to write this song.
“We love to hear stories of people who claim they have seen angels or in fact seen Jesus. Although we hunger for such experience, we should not concern ourselves with how the Lord conducts His business” Yemi said.
Yemi is a Christian music recording artist based in the UK. Hailing from Nigeria, this British singer / songwriter combines stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound. He desires to see nations worship in Spirit and in Truth.
His previous release “Chains Fall” peaked at number 1 on iTunes in the Christian/Gospel genre and was voted number 3 on the ASTEP 4WD Official UK Charts for December 2020 – Contemporary Gospel.
