Highland Singer Songwriter hits the top slot

A Highland singer-songwriter has just hit the top of the New Christian Music charts with a number one single.


John WilsonJohn Wilson of Inverness-based aLive Ministry has reached No. 1 on the UK and European charts with his debut single 'Wonderfully and Fearfully Made'. The song is part of the album 'Eternity'.


 John, who is about to embark on his third UK Tour on 29th August says, 'This is a fantastic and very humbling experience. It is very encouraging that people across the UK and the world enjoy my music and are being blessed by it.'


The chart success is down to feedback and play requests from two hundred and seventy Christian radio stations spread across the world, and including responses from industry executives within the Christian music circuit.


John will be visiting over forty churches during autumn (2009), as well as holding outreach weekends in London and Dawley. And amongst his busy touring schedule he also makes himself available to local churches in the Highlands and Islands area.

I've seen remarks with the word "humbling" in unexpected places like this a few times and they always puzzle me. Surely it would be "humbling" if he had expected to reach No 1 and someone without as much skill had reached No 1 instead. I can understand it being "surprising" if he wasn't expecting it, I can even understand him feeling thankful and even, momentarily, undeserving, but surely success is never going to make a person feel more humble?

I would think that what people mean when they use the word "humbling' in these contexts is that they feel unworthy of the accolade?
