Did you know that LeAnn Rimes scored one of the first #1 Christian albums on the Billboard 200?
Rimes’ You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs was only the second Christian album in history to top the Billboard 200, following Bob Carlisle’s Butterfly Kisses (Shades of Grace). The record included covers of “Amazing Grace”, “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” and even “The Star Spangled Banner”.
Since its release in 1997, You Light Up My Life has been certified double platinum by the RIAA and Rimes broke one of the Ten Commandments by engaging in a very public affair with the married Eddie Cibrian. Watch the video for “You Light Up My Life” below:
