Casting Crowns’ The Altar And The Door Live is Certified RIAA Gold: GRAMMY-winning, multi-platinum artist Casting Crowns celebrates its sixth consecutive RIAA milestone today with the Gold certification of its third live DVD/CD release, The Altar and The Door Live. This project, released on Aug. 19, captures the band’s monumental 2007-2008 headlining tour in 5.1 Surround Sound, which closed as one of Christian music’s top-attended tours of all time with nearly 500,000 fans attending in more than 80 cities. This certification comes on the heels of the band’s fourth American Music Awards nomination, announced Tuesday, and the release of Casting Crowns’ first Christmas album Peace On Earth. The new album reached No. 1 on iTunes Christian albums chart, and No. 3 on iTunes overall Holiday albums chart topping new seasonal releases from Faith Hill and Elvis Presley. Peace On Earth also debuts at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums chart, and No. 1 on both SoundScan’s Christian Retail chart and Christian Seasonal Overall charts, as the highest charting Christmas album of the week.

Tenth Avenue North Partners with Compassion International: Tenth Avenue North (Reunion Records) is proud to announce its new partnership with child sponsorship organization, Compassion International. Mike Donehey, lead vocalist and songwriter for Tenth Avenue North, stated, “One of the things we love most about Compassion is that it’s not about Compassion. If you go to one of their sites you won’t see a Compassion banner, but instead you’ll see the church in that area giving to their community exactly what it needs. The empowering of the local church to be the hands and feet of Jesus is what we want to be about, and its what we feel Compassion does best.” Wess Stafford, President, Compassion International commented, “I’m thrilled that Tenth Avenue North will be joining Compassion’s effort to release children from the evil of poverty throughout the world in Jesus name. I’m confident that the Lord will use the message and example of Tenth Avenue North in a mighty way to draw caring sponsors into the lives of children who so desperately need to hear His message of love and hope.” For more information on Tenth Avenue North, please visit www.tenthavenuenorth.com.
