Mat and Savanna have chosen to continue posting inspiring duets together and now have a worldwide fan base of over 575,000 YouTube subscribers. Her first three albums were all number 1 on iTunes, Amazon, and Billboard charts worldwide, including “Merry Little Christmas,” which was number 1 on the iTunes holiday chart. Kelly Clarkson called them “incredibly talented” and Good Morning America said, “The music of this father-daughter duo brings hope.”

Hollens has over 5 million followers and subscribers since 2011 and over a billion views in total.
