We wanted to update you about everything that’s going on with “The Generous Mr. Lovewell” so we thought we’d just let MercyMe do it. See what they have to say below-
Hey everybody! We have been blown away by all the support from everyone for this album, but more than that, it’s incredibly humbling to see the “love well” idea take flight. We sold over 87,000 albums the first week, and debuted at #3 on billboard! All because of you the fans! We cannot say thank you enough!
This past week we sat speechless as people rallied around “Mr. Lovewell!” While we had a blast trying to reach #1, seeing people actually making a difference by “loving others well” is what truly caught us off guard. What we hoped would take place during the next several months, actually started taking place in a week! In the past few days, we have literally heard hundreds and hundreds of stories of people living out the gospel by loving others well. We’re in awe and incredibly thankful for the opportunity to witness it all!
Why were we motivated to go for the #1 spot on the charts? Click here to read on
As MercyMe said, you guys are awesome and they couldn’t have done it without you, so thanks to everyone who bought the album and helped spread the word! I wanted to also let you know about a new contest we just launched for our email subscribers. The iPod Touch contest has ended and we’re working on finalizing the winners (be sure to go check your email this week in case it’s you) but we’ve got a new opportunity to win a Flip Video Camera and MercyMe CD Library, so even if you don’t win this month, you could be next. 🙂 Click here to read all about it.
We also want to hear more from you guys, so we’ve launched a new Poll widget on our site to give us more opportunities to get your feedback. Right now you can go vote on what your favorite new MercyMe song is, but we’ll have more coming soon. We’ll leave you with a behind the scenes video from MercyMe during the making of “The Generous Mr. Lovewell”
We look forward to hearing from you!
