Christian Album Sales – Week of 4/3/12

Gospel singer Marvin Sapp debtued at 9 with I Win. CCM worshipper Christy Nockels hit #67 with Into the Glorious. A lot of Christian albums saw significantly increased sales last week – almost as if there was a change in how the data was being collected. Or maybe Christians just like to buy a lot of CDs around Easter. Jamie Grace and Mandisa came back into the top 200 and so did Flatfoot 56!

(For whatever reason, Soundscan includes sales from Christian outlets in their weekly totals that determine the Billboard 200 chart positions, but they don’t include them in their reported totals. So I just add up all the weekly totals and compare them to the reported totals to see how many sales are missing from Christian outlets.)
