The Pulse of Entertainment: ‘God Is Love' Breaks Billboard Record for Steve Dalton & The Leviticus Singers of Charlotte

Eunice Moseley


(August 18, 2020) - "I knew it would be a song to reach all audiences," said two-time Gospel Image Award winner Steve Dalton about the single "God Is Love." The single, released by Steve Dalton and The Leviticus Singers of Charlotte, broke a Billboard "Gospel Airplay Internet Radio Chart" record by staying at #1 for 20 weeks straight, breaking the 17 week record of Micah Lee for his "Don't Break" single. "It has that type of appeal to it. "

Steve said the song was a divine inspiration.

"I had the draft and went back and forth...then the Lord said down-load the lyrics," Dalton said about "God Is Love." "He (God) links to us through song and gives us a message, as a Preacher, to lead you to those things. He just said, ‘Here you go.'"

The up-tempo single is the first from the upcoming winter release of "The Introduction" EP, and it reached the #1 spot on Billboard's "Gospel Airplay Internet Radio Chart" on February 10, 2020 and stayed there until June 21st. It is accompanied with a music video that presents scenes of real-life situations experienced by members of The Leviticus Singers of Charlotte.

"We were at a national competition for churches from all over the country. I was placed over the music," Steve said when I asked about how he hooked-up with the members of his choir/band. Dalton added, "The Lord just led us to them. He (God) spoke to me at 5 years-old, said I'd be doing his ministry out of the four-walls. My ‘team' consists of my wife and everyone that has been with us for 10-12 years."

He went on about The Leviticus Singers of Charlotte, "The ones you see, that's my solids. We're family."

Steve Dalton and The Leviticus Singers of Charlotte have been together for 16 years and have performed on stage with such iconic Gospel singers as Fred Hammond, Kurt Carr, Bryon Cage and Israel Houghton.
