He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands 45 by Laurie London

Laurie London, (male), was an English teenager 13 years old, when he recorded an up-tempo version of the Christian song, “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands.” It became a huge hit in the United States. It reached number two on both the BILLBOARD Hot 100 and Best Sellers in Stores Charts. Radio DJ’s really loved the song, however, as it was number one on the Most Played By DJ’s Chart for four weeks beginning April 14, 1958.

He was a one hit wonder in the United States as he never had another chart single. By the end of the 1960s he had retired from the music industry.
