The line-up includes, Billboard chart ranking singer, songwriter, and worship leader, Misty Edwards, a leader at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, MO will also be joining this event.

Having performed in front of millions, this artist is no stranger to the stage.

Great-nephew of blues legend Nina Simone, Jaye Thomas is a Dove-nominated singer and songwriter. As a full-time worship leader for the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Jaye uses his deep-rooted musical talents to reach and teach others. He also travels internationally to perform in front of massive crowds.

Kat&Jared, from Temple, Texas will bring a warm and contagious worship sound to the showcase. Driving rhythms and jubilant melody lines intertwine with Kat’s luminous vocals to create uplifting anthems that celebrate life, love, and devotion. Kat&Jared have built strong musical and personal bonds thanks in part to 8 years spent on the road with Jared’s platinum-selling band Flyleaf. 

Chicago, IL native Psalmist Raine, who is swooning the nation with sweet songs of peace and refreshment. Her propulsion into the Christian music industry is as enigmatic  as the making of her sophomore album, Refresh Worship Live, which is an unrehearsed recording of spontaneously produced music.

Enrique Holmes is a singer, songwriter, and speaker. The Atlanta, GA native mixes his soulful tone over melodic hymns to release a sound that is all his own, this can be heard on his 2016 breakout hit “Miracle Worker.” On it's first week out he received the accolade of Hot new single from Billboard.

Bethany Martin is a songwriter, worship leader and writer who desires to be faithful to tend the fire God has started. Her heart is for Jesus to be worshiped and for His heart to be expressed through His people.

Guitar yielding Jesus crooner, Joshua Kirksey, an up and coming worship artist, whose blend of Jazz, Blues, Soul and Rock to make an ultimate worship offering to The Lord.
