Phil Wickham Releases 'La Batalla' Ft. Christine D'Clario, Spanish Version of No. 1 Hit 'Battle Belongs"
Phil Wickham released "La Batalla" featuring Christine D'Clario a week ago. "La Batalla" is the Spanish version of Wickham's current No. 1 hit "Battle Belongs." A lyric video was also released.
"A huge thank you to Christine for joining me in bringing this version of 'Battle Belongs' to life," Wickham recently shared on his socials. "I hope and pray 'La Batalla' is an encouragement and blessing to my Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters out there!"
He continues, "Growing up in San Diego, there has always been a strong presence of the Spanish-speaking church in my hometown. When I was in youth group we would take trips down to Mexico to worship with and work alongside the church communities down there. I was always so moved by their passion when we would sing. What an honor to sing with Christine to bring this new version to life."
"Battle Belongs" has spent an astounding four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard National Christian Audience chart, along with topping additional radio charts for multiple weeks. The song was the first to release from Wickham's upcoming album, Hymn of Heaven, out June 25.
