EHSS DVD certified Gold
Ernie Haase & Signature Sound’s multi-Dove Award-winning DVD, Get Away Jordan, was recently certified Gold by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America). Unlike Gold Album status, which is based on 500,000 units sold, Gold Video status is based on 50,000 units sold–still an impressive number.
In the press release, Ernie Haase commented: “We are blessed–blessed with a broad base of friends who believe in us and find some hope in our message. And so, for this achievement most of all I thank our fans.”
Someone did not do their fact checking before sending the press release out; Gaither.com, SingingNews.com, and Southern Gospel Reporter all referred to EHSS’s upcoming Dream On release as the group’s second solo concert video. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The links are broken and have been removed.] No matter how you count it, the numbers don’t line up; not counting Together (with the Gaither Vocal Band), Dream On is their fifth or sixth release overall, fourth with the Haase/Seaton/Anderson/Duncan vocal lineup, and third Gaither title (after their eponymous release Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, and Get Away Jordan).
