Exceeds one billion Tiktok views
WITH AFROBEAT: “FIND ME HERE (BLESSINGS FIND ME)”

FIRST GOSPEL SONG TO REACH THE MILLION MARK ON TIKTOK

Indianapolis, IN: Sherwin Gardner, a Trinidadian singer based in the Bahamas, has been singing professionally for four decades. But his current publication: “Find me here (blessings find me)“is the biggest of his career. It has racked up more than a billion views on TikTok, earning him a place in a tight circle of TikTok influencers like illusionist Zach King and actor The Rock. It is the first gospel song to reach this milestone. Since the Afrobeat track was released in January, it has racked up 1.1 billion TikTok views, 9.2 million digital streams and 2.2 million user-generated creations. He recently visited the offices of his distribution partner ADA in Manhattan to meet the employees and celebrate the song's success.

The song has been shared or touted on social media by celebrities such as pop stars Alicia Keysrapper EVEGospel singer Yolanda AdamsNew Jack Swing producer Teddy RileyActor Kel Mitchelland lifestyle influencers, Tabitha Smith.

“I created a 46-second song to post as an affirmation for New Year’s Day,” recalls Gardner. “When I posted the video I thought 100 people might like it. The next day there were 100,000 views. By the end of the week there were a million views.” The views sparked a bidding war between record labels like Sony, IslandAnd Universal music. Gardner didn't even have a full song to offer. So he rushed to his Bahamian studio to create a full track. Then he emailed it to Julius Nana, a Kenyan musician. After Nana emailed it back, Gardner cut the main and backing vocals, added other atmospheres, and mixed it himself.

Gardner's Flow master Imprint has partnered with Indiana-based company Tyscot Records which is distributed by ADA / A Warner Music Group Company. Since its release in January 2024, the song has appeared on five different charts Billboard Magazine Diagrams, including the Digital world songs chart where it rose to #7, and that Digital Gospel Songs The chart peaked at number 2. Gardner is currently working on a new album of Afrobeat songs titled: Foundwhich will be released later in 2024. visit https://sherwingardner.com For more Sherwin Gardner news and information, click here.
