NASHVILLE, Tenn. – January 25, 2009 – Following their successful pairing on the 30-city “Come Alive” Tour last fall, platinum-selling and Dove award-winning artists Mark Schultz and Point of Grace will hit the road together again this spring for an additional 25 cities. Pulling from their expansive repertoires, both artists will perform a collection of fan favorites, while Schultz will also play songs from his celebrated fifth studio release Come Alive, and Point of Grace will play selections from both their current, critically-acclaimed How You Live as well as their upcoming brand new release No Changin’ Us (March 2).

Kicking off on February 26, in Appleton, Wis., the “Come Alive” Tour will journey across the country and into Canada, with concerts in Texas, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Utah, Wyoming, Michigan, Illinois, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Vancouver (BC) and more. A current list of tour dates can be found at or

“Being out on the road traveling, connecting and worshipping with so many people is something I always look forward to,” says Schultz. “I hope to see a lot of old friends out on the road and make a lot of new friends as we head out west in a few short weeks for the continuation of the ‘Come Alive’ Tour.”

“We are so excited to continue the ‘Come Alive’ tour with Mark Schultz,” adds Shelley Breen of Point of Grace. “This spring we will be able to share new songs from our brand new record, No Changin’ Us. The evening is such a ministry-oriented, yet fun-filled, bring-the-whole-family event. We loved Mark’s music long before the fall leg of this tour; now we have come to love his heart for people even more! The girls and I can’t wait to see everyone this spring out on the road.”

About Mark Schultz
One of Christian music’s most acclaimed singer/songwriters, Schultz’s first new studio album in nearly three years, Come Alive, is also his most personal recording to date, inviting listeners to “come alive” through these songs birthed by stories of hope, loss, joy and redemption. Pulling from real life experiences, the songs on Come Alive were inspired by families dealing with cancer, special needs and through Schultz‘s coast-to-coast bicycle ride that raised over $250,000 to benefit the James Fund, which provides assistance for widows and orphans. Produced by Brown Bannister (Amy Grant, Third Day, CeCe Winans), Shaun Shankel (Beyoncé, Hilary Duff), Bernie Herms (Natalie Grant, Avalon) and Paul Mills (Third Day, Bluetree), the album also features collaborations with such hit making songwriters as Bart Millard and Barry Graul of Mercy Me, Matthew West, Joy Williams and Herms.

Lauded at No. 1 on Billboard’s “Hot Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriters” list and with nine No. 1 radio hits, Schultz’s celebrated career highlights include being the centerpiece of the U.S. Army campaign “Letters From War,” named Christian Music Today’s Male Vocalist in 2003, and featured on the national TV programs, 48 Hours, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, CNN and more. His 2005 release, Mark Schultz Live…A Night of Stories & Songs, sold RIAA certified Platinum and garnered Schultz his first GMA Dove Award. For more information on Mark Schultz, visit

About Point of Grace
Point Of Grace’s groundbreaking success that began in the gospel market has recently seen their audience expand to the country music arena with the hit song, “How You Live (Turn Up the Music).” With airplay on country stations across the nation, the ballad is the centerpiece of Point Of Grace’s How You Live Deluxe Edition, an expanded version of its Dove Award-winning How You Live project. The Deluxe Edition includes the song “I Wish”, produced by Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and “King of the World,” written by prolific songwriter/artist, Cindy Morgan, who also penned “How You Live”. Point of Grace recently finished their upcoming Word/WB release, No Changin’ Us, which will be available for purchase on March 2. The girls once again worked with the famed producer Nathan Chapman to create a positive record that fits easily in both the Christian and County markets.

The readily identifiable sound of Point Of Grace has fueled one of the most successful careers in gospel music. Point Of Grace has sold more than eight million albums, won 11 Dove Awards and received two GRAMMY nods. They’ve earned two platinum and five gold albums and have scored more than two dozen No. 1 hits at Christian radio, among them “Steady On,” “The Great Divide” and “Circle of Friends.” Point Of Grace has also garnered major national media exposure, including The View with Barbara Walters, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Time Magazine, CNN, Prime/Time Live, Ladies’ Home Journal, Billboard, VH-1, CBS This Morning and, ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, among others.
