Michael W. Smith Releases A New Hallelujah- The Live Worship DVD: March 17, Michael W. Smith released the video companion to his newest record, and third worship album, A New Hallelujah. Recorded live in Houston last summer before 12,000 people, a 250-voice choir and several special guests including the African Children’s Choir and 2008 GRAMMY Award-winner, Israel Houghton, this DVD captures the powerful experience of the evening’s worship in high-definition. The 90-minute long project features all 13 songs from A New Hallelujah (10/28/08), plus four new tracks and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage. “Smitty” kept busy this street week with the taping of a two-hour special during the network’s “Praise the Lord” show block with special guests Meredith Andrews and Paul Baloche, hosted by Donnie McClurkin. The entire two-hour block was devoted to A New Hallelujah (10/28/08)and A New Hallelujah – The Live Worship DVD (3/17/09). The show will air Friday, March 20, 2009. (Check local listings for airtimes in your area).
Michael also spent time on air with FamilyNet Radio, American Family Radio and Moody Radio and performed live at the Daystar TV Studios where he was featured on three of the network’s anchor shows: “Live Celebration”, “Celebration Music” and the “Joni Show.” Today, Michael was at the Rivers’ Ranch and the guest for K-LOVE’s “Morning Show with Jon and Sherry”.
After a week of hard work promoting his new project, Michael will wrap things up Friday evening with a benefit for Trinity Christian Academy at Watermark Church in Dallas, TX.

Third Day’s Revelation Tour with Brandon Heath and Revive Kicks Off With Four Sold Out Shows: The Northeast is widely known to be a very difficult region for Christian music. With a smaller segment of the population identifying itself as evangelical, and a less robust network of Christian radio stations, the infrastructure that normally supports Christian music and specifically Christian tours is simply not intact. Throw in an economic crisis, and the formula for a successful Third Day show would seem to be nonexistent. Despite these facts, THE REVELATION TOUR has had an impressive showing in this region. In 3 days, Third Day performed for close to 8,000 fans in 3 cities. The McMurray, PA shows and Worcester, Mass shows were completely sold out with 3,000 + fans in Maine. Third Day currently has four sold out dates for the THE REVELATION TOUR. Mac Powell commented from stage at the sold out Palladium Theater that he enjoyed the audiences of the Northeast because their faith costs them something. “In the south, there is a church on every corner. If you’re born in America, and you haven’t killed anybody, people call themselves Christians. Up here, you appreciate the cost of following Christ.” “We’ve really enjoyed this run,” says bass player Tai Anderson. “The crowds are so enthusiastic, and it feels like they’re really appreciative that we’re here. We’re committed to coming back often, and hope that other Christian bands will make it a priority.” To learn more about Third Day, please visit: www.ThirdDay.com.
Brandon Heath’s Benefit Show Raises Over $10,000 and Counting as Part of the Second Annual “Love Your Neighbor” Benefit: Brandon Heath’s “Save David’s Eyes” benefit show on March 11 hosted roughly 600 guests who raised over $10, 000 for one high school student. Heath hosted the benefit to raise surgery funds for 18-year old glaucoma patient, David Atmajaya. Heath launched into the show with Jason Ingram and Tiffany Lee (Plumb) by playing three songs each. Mike Donehey from Tenth Avenue North joined the stage and performed “By Your Side” with songwriter Jason Ingram. Heath closed the benefit show with his Grammy-nominated, megahit “Give Me Your Eyes.” In support of the cause, Stuph Merch donated over 70 t-shirts featuring the benefit artwork, all of which sold out before the event finished.
