Brandon Heath Wraps ART*MUSIC*JUSTICE Tour to Stellar Reviews and a Non-Stop Single: This fall Brandon Heath along with Sara Groves, Derek Webb, Sandra McCracken and author/artist Charlie Peacock, hit the road for the ART*MUSIC*JUSTICE tour. This tour benefited both the International Justice Mission (IJM) and Food For the Hungry (FH). The tour was such a success on so many levels that plans are already underway to put together a follow-up tour in the fall of 2009. “The sound and feel of the night couldn’t have been more like a family joining other families to end slavery,” said Brandon Heath. In over 20 cities, the artists brought a unique concert opportunity to “add to the beauty, seek justice and give God praise,” each evening, desiring to further educate the church on God's heart for justice, gain advocates for the oppressed, and show evidence of a God at work in this world. Each evening brought with it inspired music and videos of God's people in action and their heroic experiences across the globe. Incredible stories of rescue from the International Justice Mission were told. As the tour wrapped, 550 kids had been sponsored in the Rwandan Village of Gisanga, and their goal to raise $50k for the International Justice Mission was surpassed.
PLG Artists Score Two Spots On GospelMusicChannel.com’s Top 10 Year End Picks for 2008: Provident Label Group artists, Brandon Heath and Fireflight, received recognition on GospelMusicChannel.com’s Top 10 Year End Picks for 2008.
Brandon Heath was recognized as iTunes pick for his song “Sunrise” off of his sophomore album What If We. GospelMusicChannel.com editors had a lot of great things to say about Brandon and his latest album:
“There’s an urgency in Brandon Heath’s music that causes the listener to examine the world and their faith through a more finely tuned lens. That, combined with captivating vocals and a slew of grab-your-attention songs continues to spotlight this New Artist of the Year's multi-faceted talent. Brandon’s laid-back style and smooth vocals, combined with the songs’ originality, make the album one that as a music fan – not even just a Christian music fan and regardless of style preference – you need to hear. The more time you give it to settle into your bones, the more you’ll find yourself hitting repeat.”
Fireflight’s hit song “Unbreakable”, off of its sophomore album Unbreakable, also was chosen as GospelMusicChannel.com’s iTunes pick. The song, which made huge impressions in radio and on the charts, also impressed the GMC editors:
“There’s no denying the ability of “girl rock” to make major waves these days in both faith-focused and mainstream circles. In fact, with spiritually centered groups like Fireflight, Superchick, Paramore and Evanescence making a splash on both sides of the charts, it's no wonder Fireflight is so popular and relevant with today’s youth. Still, the high-octane troupe is carving out a niche of its own thanks to explosive chord progressions and spirited sing-a-longs. Unbreakable proves Fireflight has enough heat to go the distance.”
