Building 429’s “Where I Belong” Gains Gold Certification

Building429GRAMMY┬«-nominated and multi-award winning band Building 429 has received their first RIAA┬«-Gold certification for their single “Where I Belong.” Since its release, this BMI Song of the Year has garnered other top honors, such as Billboard’s Christian Song of the Year and Christian AC radio’s Song of the Year, while also awarding Building 429 their first Billboard Music Awards nomination for Top Christian Song.

“We are so humbled to have been a small part of a song that continues to circle the globe inspiring people to faith in difficult times,” shares Jason Roy, Building 429’s lead vocalist, on behalf of the band. “It has been one of the greatest privileges of our career to sing ‘Where I Belong’ night after night, and watch in amazement as God made it an anthem for a generation.”

#IAMUNASHAMED: When Building 429 released their latest project last month, titled Unashamed, it was touted as their most powerful and anthemic to date. Accompanying the album’s theme of standing strong in one’s faith, the band kicked off their #IAMUNASHAMED campaign. Sharing from the stage each night to encourage others, Roy says, “In recent weeks we’ve once again felt a great wind of favor on our new record Unashamed. As fans around the world have taken on the #IAMUNASHAMED challenge and it has spread like wildfire, we’re once again reminded of the impact of Christian music on the world. We are so thankful to be a part of such an incredible community and gladly stand along side them to say #IAMUNASHAMED of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”

People from across the U.S. continue to post daily about #IAMUNASHAMED. A few recent posts and images via Twitter are below:
