Tasha Cobbs Leonard is celebrating the success of her song “Gotta Believe.” The track has hit number one on Billboard’s Gospel Airplay chart, making it her fifth number-one on the chart overall.

“I wrote ‘Gotta Believe’ as a testament of God’s faithfulness through a difficult time on our fertility journey,” Tasha tells Billboard. “For this song to be the most-played song at gospel radio the same week we finalized adoption of my precious new baby is amazing! I am so grateful.”

Last week, Cobbs Leonard shared the details of her adoption with People, revealing she and husband Kenneth had welcomed a son named Asher.

“Gotta Believe” follows Cobbs Leonard’s “In Spite of Me,” which topped the Gospel Airplay chart last June.

In other news, Cobbs Leonard was tapped by specialty footwear and lifestyle company The Athlete’s Foot as the first female recipient of its StAART program, which stands for Strategic African American Retail Track. As a new franchise owner of The Athlete’s Foot, she’ll help with the program’s mission of increasing African American representation and ownership within the sneaker industry.
