“No Joe March” - Brandon Heath Gives Up Coffee To Support Blood:Water Mission: In support of Blood:Water Mission’s “40 Days of Water,” Brandon Heath is committing himself to his own version of the campaign called “No Joe March.” For 40 days (March 1-April 9), Brandon will be giving up all other drinks besides water, especially his favorite vice of coffee. Alongside his keyboard player, Joe Moralez, they will hold each other accountable to take the money they would have spent on coffee and donate it to Blood: Water Mission and its efforts to provide clean water for communities in Africa. Brandon would love to invite and encourage others to do this with him. You can follow his progress on Twitter & through BrandonHeath.net. To participate, simply or with great effort, make the choice to set aside the money you would have spent each day and at the end of 40 days, donate your savings to Blood:Water Mission.

Matt Maher and his band got “Simpsonized” by Erika Vega

 

Matt Maher Completes Successful Run of Dates in Southern California While Also Getting “Simpsonized” By One of His Fans: Matt Maher just finished a run in the southern California area during which he played in front of 20,000 people over the span of 5 days – first, the guys performed at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, followed up by shows in Bakersfield, Baldwin Park and San Fernando, CA. At the Baldwin Park, CA show, crowds were lined up outside the door all the way around the venue to get in, and the venue ended up opening up their choir loft to fit in all of the people trying to get in to see Matt perform! Matt and the band went outside of the venue and got the very last 2 people in line and brought them up to the front of the line, telling them “...the last shall be first...” a reality for those dedicated fans. Also at the Baldwin Park show, thanks to a kind fan who works on The Simpsons crew in the Los Angeles area, Matt was given her personal rendition of Matt and the band as if they were a part of The Simpson’s community! Thanks to Erika Vega for “Simpsonizing” Matt, Kenny, Kemi and Dan! For more information about Matt Maher, please visit:www.mattmahermusic.com.
