King Of The Hill: Savoy is earning its stripes as King of the Hill with three of the top five slots on the gospel record charts, including its number one smash from Rev. Clay Evans' "I'm Going Through" and the Georgia Mass Choir's "I Sing Because I'm Happy." Earlier this month, the label celebrated the signing of Alvin Darling & Celebration.
