NASHVILLE, TN - February 28, 2014 - Dove Award-winning trio Selah and platinum-selling artist Mark Schultz will co-headline the You Amaze Us Tour, named after Selah's upcoming brand-new studio album, releasing Aug. 19. Selah and Schultz will be joined by special guest singer-songwriter JJ Heller. The tour kicks off March 14 in Dayton, Ohio, and will hit 13 select markets this spring before wrapping up April 6, in Clinton, Illinois.

You Amaze Us (Curb) will be Selah's first collection of new recordings in three years. The trio will preview fresh music from the forthcoming album on the tour, with a variety of songs that reflect a range of musical styles-everything from a bluesy version of "Victory In Jesus" and a poignant piano/cello arrangement of "I'd Rather Have Jesus" to a powerful cover of Andrae Crouch's "Soon and Very Soon." The album's title track is the group's first radio single and was produced by Jason Kyle and The Afters' Jordan Mohilowski.

Mark Schultz will also be treating audiences to new selections from his upcoming Hymns album. Slated for an exclusive release this spring, Hymns was recorded specifically with Mark's fans in mind and will only be available online and at his merchandise table. He put his personal mark on some of his favorite hymns to craft a unique pop record he looks forward to sharing with fans. In addition to playing new music, Schultz will delight audiences with his sense of humor and trademark storytelling as he rolls through a set list full of some of his biggest hits.

Tickets for the You Amaze Us Tour are on sale now, and a special VIP package is available at select shows which includes premium seating and a pre-show Q&A with the artists. For the most up-to-date information and to purchase tickets, visit or

The You Amaze Us Tour is presented by Compassion International (, the world's leading authority in child sponsorship. Compassion revolutionized the fight against global poverty by equipping the Church to develop children out of poverty to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults. Founded in 1952, Compassion now partners with more than 6,000 Christian churches in 26 countries to release more than 1.4 million babies, children and students from poverty.

ABOUT SELAH The 2.85-million-album-selling and 7-time Dove Award-winning trio Selah has an evolving sound that is indebted to each member's eclectic tastes. Pianist/vocalist Allan Hall bleeds country and bluegrass; vocalist Todd Smith breathes classic rock and yesteryear's CCM, and vocalist Amy Perry marches to the beat of pop and urban gospel. From the group's inception, Selah has always been synonymous with hymns. In fact, the understated beauty of the trio's 1999 debut, Be Still My Soul (Curb), helped initiate a hymn revival in Christian music that is still thriving today. Their discography has significantly re-popularized the church's greatest songs while decorating the popular group with numerous Dove Awards, number one singles and sold-out concert tours. Selah's mission is to use the gifts that God has given them to encourage the people that listen to their music and attend their concerts, "If we can remind them that God is real, and He is here, and He will take care of them, we're doing what He wants us to do."

Originally hailing from Colby, Kan., Mark Schultz moved to Nashville to pursue his musical ambitions and found inspiration while working as a youth pastor. Schultz booked a show at the city's famed Ryman Auditorium and with the overwhelming support of friends and family, the show was a sell-out. This virtually unheard-of feat for a new artist landed Schultz a record deal where he went on to sell over 1.3 million albums and garner 10 No. 1 singles to date. In 2012, Schultz released his new project All Things Possible, which boasted new stories as the multi-award winning artist celebrated becoming a father, making new friends during his year-long stay in Italy with his wife Kate and kicking-off his "Remember Me" project to support orphans. He has landed the top spot on Billboard magazine's Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriter list and has been featured on "48 Hours" and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." In 2011, Schultz released his first instrumental album, Renaissance, and his first novella, titled "Letters From War," based on his hit song. His 2005 release, Mark Schultz Live: A Night of Stories & Songs, was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. and earned Schultz his first GMA Dove Award. For more info, visit

JJ Heller began her recording career in 2003 with her husband Dave Heller. She was propelled into the spotlight in 2009 when her song, "Your Hands," aired on the FOX show "So You Think You Can Dance?" "Your Hands" and her follow up single, "What Love Really Means," subsequently received airplay on nearly 60 Christian adult contemporary FM stations, and stayed on Billboard Magazine's Christian Songs chart for 24 weeks. JJ's YouTube videos serve to strengthen her bond with her listeners as the play count continues to climb above 6.2 million total views. More info is available at
