The Winter Jam 2011 Tour Spectacular “American Bible Society Pre-jam Party” is all a flurry this year with special guests Fervent Recording artists Chris August and Sidewalk Prophets along with Word Records’ and American Idol Top 10 finalist Chris Sligh warming up the stage for Christian Music favorites Francesca Battistelli, KJ-52, Kutless, NewSong, RED, The David Crowder Band and Newsboys, plus speaker Tony Nolan. It’s a rock show where the stars just happen to be Christians. The 47-city nationwide tour kicks-off tomorrow, January 7th in Chattanooga, TN and will wrap April 3rd in Peoria, IL.
During Winter Jam, artists Chris August and Sidewalk Prophets will reveal American Bible Society’s Uncover the Word movement, a movement encouraging fans to take a closer look at the relevance of the Bible and apply its text to their lives. From the stage, Chris August and Sidewalk Prophets will share a variety of custom Bible resources and videos.
“Winter Jam cannot come quickly enough,” shares Chris August. “I’m thrilled to be getting out on the road meeting new people, touring with some great bands and friends of mine and exploring new cities. It’s going to be a great night of music, fun and worship. I know there will be a ton of folks out at these shows, but I’m going to make it my goal to meet every one of you!”
Ben McDonald of Sidewalk Prophets remarks, “We’re so excited for Winter Jam 2011! We were so privileged to travel with the tour last year and made so many amazing new friends in each city. Amazing bands, great people, and all for one purpose – shining a light in the darkness and raising high the name of Christ! We’ll be there and hope to see you there too.”
“To say that I am excited about Winter Jam would be an understatement,” exclaims Chris Sligh. “Whether you talk about my attending Winter Jam as a fan in Greenville, S.C., or the fact that I’m getting to tour with people who are becoming good friends like Chris August and Newsboys, I’m elated to be a part of something so special!”
In addition to this hot music line-up, the pre-show features games, prizes and the chance to meet Chris August, Chris Sligh and Sidewalk Prophets. All of the pre-show fun gets underway at 6 p.m. on weekdays and 5 p.m. on weekends. Tickets are $10 and only available at the door.
During the American Bible Society Pre-Jam Party, attendees will have the opportunity to text the keyword “UNCOVER,” plus their email address, to the 31452 to receive Bible verses via text message, encouraging them to discover what God says through scripture.”
