NASHVILLE, Tenn.-With more than 30,000 people in attendance at Atlanta's Georgia Dome, Saturday's inaugural Winter Jam 2014 Dome Spectacular became the biggest single event in the groundbreaking tour's 19-year history.

Along with Winter Jam's stellar line-up-Newsboys, Lecrae, Tenth Avenue North, Thousand Foot Krutch, Plumb, NewSong, Colton Dixon, Love & The Outcome, Everfound, Derek Minor and evangelist Nick Hall-the Dome Spectacular also included multiple guests. Guinness World Record-holding high wire artist Nik Wallenda successfully walked a tightrope across the Georgia Dome, while Duck Dynasty's Reed Robertson, GRAMMY®-nominated multi-Dove Award winner David Crowder and University of Georgia head football coach Mark Richt made special appearances.

Marking another milestone for the mega event, more than 500 attendees committed to sponsoring a child through Holt International, the largest one-night sponsorship response in Winter Jam history.

The Winter Jam 2014 Dome Spectacular also featured the all-day "JAM ZONE Presented by KIA," which drew an estimated 7,500 people. Held at the adjacent World Congress Center, the free expo included a Winter Jam artist autograph booth, more than 85 local business and exhibitor booths, and food and merchandise vendors, among many other activities.

"Winter Jam at the Georgia Dome was a historic night for the tour," said NewSong's Eddie Carswell, creator of Winter Jam. "Our special guests and the JAM ZONE at the World Congress Center helped bring out a record number of people. It was a great night of encouraging Christians in Atlanta and sharing the Gospel with people who don't know Christ."

Promoted by Premier Productions and presented by Holt International, NewSong's Winter Jam 2014 Tour Spectacular will hit 48 cities, before concluding March 30. A complete list of Winter Jam 2014 Tour Spectacular dates and cities is available at jamtour.com.
