Worship Goes Mainstream With Performance Of Kari Jobe Love Came Down On American Idol

Last night on American Idol, one of the top 6 contestants, Angie Miller, chose a Kari Jobe song to perform as her “Song I wish I had written” selection. Miller’s performance of ‘Love Came Down’ from Jobe’s 2012 release ‘Where I Find You’ resulted in a standing ovation from the crowd and all four judges. Following Miller’s performance last night, Jobe’s song quickly climbed to the top of the iTunes Christian & Gospel singles chart, and the album is currently at No. 6 on the iTunes Christian and Gospel album chart.

“I have watched American Idol for 12 years, and it was so much fun to have ‘Love Came Down’ from my album, ‘Where I Find You’ on there this week,” shared Jobe after watching the performance. “I met Angie a year ago and was blown away by her talent and love for Jesus! Excited for her!”

Miller also shared on Twitter last night to Jobe, “I watched you perform ‘Love Came Down’ quite some time ago and fell in love with it. Thank you for inspiring me so much! Love you!”

    ‘Love came down is originaly wirtten & recorded by Brian Johnson &the team at Bethel Chruch…. Whilst I understand that Angie MIller may have first heard it from Kari Jobe, Kari only did a cover of this song on her album…. Should give credit where credit is due :) especially in your article!
