Grossing more than $40 million in box office sales since its March 21 release, Pure Flix’s GOD’S NOT DEAD movie has helped to fuel success of the soundtrack too. Its lead radio single “Hold You Up,” which initially launched last September, soared to No. 1 a mere four weeks following the film’s debut. Consequently, the song; performed by actor/musician Shane Harper (Disney’s “Good Luck Charlie,” “High School Musical 2,” “Flipped”), who also stars in the movie; currently boasts more than 25,000 downloads, nearly half of those in the last month alone.
Rachel Leigh with KPUL-FM in Des Moines, Iowa, comments, “I was impressed with Shane’s style and lyrical content in ‘Hold You Up’ from the get-go. Eight months later, it’s still our top-testing song!” Furthermore, the record has consistently ranked among the Top 10 general market soundtracks on iTunes since GOD’S NOT DEAD opened in theatres.
