Duluth's Casey J hitting the Billboard gospel charts

BY MELISSA RUGGIERI

Casey J is a worship pastor at Fresh Start Church in Duluth and a teacher at Georgia Connections Academy charter school.

And now she’s a Billboard-charting artist.

Casey J (aka Casey Hobbs) is currently sitting at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart with “Fill Me Up,” a worship anthem written by Will Reagan, who also penned Tasha Cobbs’ breakthrough, “Break Every Chain.” The song is also No. 3 on the Gospel Airplay chart.

On Friday, Jan. 30, at 7:30 p.m., Casey J will hold a live recording session for her debut CD, “The Truth,” tentatively slated for a spring release. The public is invited to attend the session, which will take place at Fresh Start Church (2021 W. Liddell Road in Duluth).

The album will be produced by keyboardist/guitarist Chris Carter (who produced “Fill Me Up”) as well as Korey Bowie (Angie Stone, CeCe Winans). Music director Rick Watford and singer Jason Nelson will also be part of the recording.

On Feb. 10, Casey J’s label, Tyscot Records, will release a $4.99 maxi-CD of “Fill Me Up,” including the radio and extended versions of the track and an instrumental take.
