COVID-19's effect on the number of streams in various Christian Music Genres

We analyzed Spotify Monthly Listeners trends across a number of our Christian music playlists. Here's what we found:

- Spotify listenership appears to be increasing for our Ambient playlist during COVID-19.

- Spotify listenership is relatively unaffected for our Christian Contemporary Music (CCM) and Christian Dance playlists during COVID-19. There is a small decrease, but that more or less follows the listening trend we saw last year.

- Spotify listenership appears to be decreasing for Christian Hip Hop during COVID-19.

Disclaimer: These trend changes may potentially be due to other factors and not necessarily a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Based on feedback from a large number of followers we are inclined to believe that COVID-19 is a major reason for these changes in listening trends.
