A gospel singer saw her dreams come true as her song climbed to the top of the charts this year, until COVID-19 almost left her without a voice to sing it.
She might say Jesus fixed it.
Shontelle Norman-Beatty, who grew up in the Raleigh neighborhood of Memphis, is considered one of gospel’s artists to watch. She’d been singing all her life when she finally made it to the top.
“Jesus Will Fix It” started climbing the charts early this summer and made it all the way to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 100 charts in September.
“To see your name on Billboard for number one, I was speechless for like a couple of hours,” she said.
Shontelle and her producers put a spin on an old favorite, and gospel fans loved it.
“It’s just an up-to-date, feel-good version of an old classic gospel song with just that feel-good message that your grandparents had back in the day,” she said. “And when I was in the studio all I could hear was my granddaddy singing it.”
