The #1’s – “God Kept His Promise”

At the end of 2012 I began taking a look at Southern Gospel’s #1 hits over the course of its history.  These are #1 hits as reported by the Singing News magazine.  In this first #1’s feature of 2013, I wanted to take a look at the song “God Kept His Promise”.

The Steeles burst on the Southern Gospel music scene in 1994 with their first #1 song (which we will take a look at later).  A virtual unknown artist became a house hold name in a short period of time.  The group went on to garner a total of four #1 songs.

“God Kept His Promise” was penned by group member Jeff Steele and was the first single from the group’s 1995 album Southern Steele.  The song would spend three months at #1 between the months of October and December 1995.  Here is a YouTube clip of the Steeles performing their #1 hit “God Kept His Promise”.  Enjoy!

I happened to be in attendance during this event and to say it was awesome would be an understatement!  Every year Ray Flynn would hold an annual event in Winston-Salem NC that would draw 10,000 to 12,000 people.  I attended many of them.  Too bad they no longer exist.
