Chapman made history after his single “Don’t Lose Heart” became his 50th single to make it to the top of the contemporary Christian genre chart. In a statement, he expressed his awe and disbelief at this milestone in his career. He also expressed his gratitude to those who made this success possible.
“I’m completely blown away by the support for this song and for my music, even after so many years,” Steven said in a statement. “To ever have a number one song on the radio as an artist/songwriter is a dream come true, and to have fifty is simply unbelievable! This only happens because of an amazing team and a community of friends around me who have believed in the unbelievable. I’m grateful and humbled beyond words.”
“Don’t Lose Heart”
His first hit single was the song “His Eyes” in 1988. Other songs included in his chart-topping singles were “Live Out Loud,” “I Will Be Here,” “For The Sake of the Call,” “Dive” and “The Great Adventure.” “Don’t Lose Heart” was released last year as a part of his “Still” album.
The song talks about the grieving his family experienced when they lost their young daughter Maria. In 2008, their 5-year-old daughter was killed in a vehicular accident in their driveway.
“Living between heaven and the real world. That’s kind of where I feel like I am right now, longing for heaven more than ever now. Because I believe that’s where my daughter is,” he said in an interview in 2017. “Between Heaven and the Real World: My Story.”
Whenever we’re faced with a difficult and dark circumstance, never lose hope. Always remember the promises that God gave to you. No matter how hard life gets, you have the heavenly Father who never leaves you nor forsakes you. Life up your eyes to Him and let Him carry you in His arms.
