NU Student’s Band on Billboard Charts

NU Student’s Band on Billboard Charts

Current NU student Nathan Furtado is staying busy these days! In addition to preparing for mid-terms, Nathan’s band Citizens has an album that is making a serious impact on the Christian music scene! Nate plays bass for Citizens, which is signed to Mars Hill Music’s label. This much anticipated record landed on the Billboard Heat Seekers chart at #6 last week upon release and is currently #4 on the Billboard Christian Worship chart.

Nathan is involved in the Creatio program at NU and is majoring in Music Industry Business with a minor in Audio Production Technologies. He is also a member of the NU Eagles soccer team. He was featured recently in the latest edition of NU’s Pursuit magazine. We’re proud of Nate’s hard work and the way that he is making a difference.
