Contact: Heather Hendrix, 801-517-3262

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Sept. 20, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- For the second time in her career, Shadow Mountain Records' recording artist, Hilary Weeks landed on the Contemporary Christian Billboard Charts.

"Say Love," Hilary's 10th solo album, shares the Top 10 chart with Newsboys, Derek Minor, and Skillet. In total she landed on three Billboard Charts.

Top Current Contemporary Christian: #9
Top Albums -- Billboard Top 200: #161 (top selling albums, includes every genre)
Top Current Albums -- Salt Lake City: #2 (#1 in Salt Lake City was Keith Urban's new album Fuse)

A music video for the title track "Say Love" can be seen here.

Hilary's been featured on numerous compilation albums and has been the recipient of multiple awards presented from the Faith Centered Music Association. "Breaking the top ten on the Christian Billboard Charts for a second time is an exciting surprise! For me, the most important word in the prior sentence is 'Christian.' It has only been in the last two years that I've been able to say that I charted on Billboard, but I've always been able to declare I am a Christian," explains Hilary.

Delivering music with a rare combination of assuredness and tenderness is one of Hilary's strengths as an artist. Pulling from life experiences, inspiring lyrics and a stellar voice; every song on the album reminds us that we can make a difference no matter where we are in life.

Bob Ahlander, Director of Shadow Mountain Records, was excited to hear the news. "We are ecstatic!" Ahlander said. "For her to achieve this a second time shows just how strong her fan base is and how well her music connects with people of faith. We couldn't be happier for her."

In addition to the CD, the album is available as a digital download on iTunes.
