Avalon Reaches No. 1, for the 22nd Time!

From Vining Media Relations – NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Avalon has achieved something that very few artists have garnered in their musical careers. For the 22nd time in the group's 15-year history, Avalon has reached the No. 1 spot with their single, "Arise." The hit song, which is top of the Billboard Soft AC-Inspo chart, is from the group's current release, Reborn, which hit shelves Sept. 15 (E1 Entertainment).

"We are thrilled our latest single 'Arise' is blessing so many people," exclaims member Janna Long. "What a great reminder of the abundant life God calls us to."

"Arise" has also been added to over 30 more stations across the nation, including American Family Radio and the FamilyLife Network. It's been in the top 5 on the Billboard Soft AC-Inspo chart for 12 weeks, and has also charted on the INSPO, Indicator AC and Monitored AC stations.

"All of us at E1 Entertainment join in congratulating Avalon on the #1 single, 'Arise,' from their groundbreaking album Reborn," states Jim Sturgeon, E1 Entertainment. "I want to thank Christian radio for their continued support of Avalon over the past 15 years. Get ready for the new single 'Alive,' coming in January."

Since its release, Reborn has achieved much acclaim, with stellar reviews. All Music Guide claimed, "Hands down, Reborn is the best album Avalon has released this decade," while stated, "Avalon is still one of the best in their game."

Just days after wrapping up their "An Evening with Selah & Avalon," the group will perform two more concerts - December 12th in Tallahassee, FL and Dec. 13th in Hollywood, FL - before the year's end. For more tour information, please visit
