Fervent Records’ breakout Urban sensation and Dove Award winning trio Group 1 Crew (Blanca, Manwell and Pablo) are ready to launch into orbit their first ever headlining tour as they hit the road this fall with their 2011 Outta Space Love Tour. The talented group will be bringing their signature energy, irresistible beats and substantive lyrics to the 15-city tour as they perform selections from their current release Outta Space Love, available everywhere now. The album features their brand new single “Let’s Go” now at CCM radio and Top 5 hit “Walking On The Stars.” Sponsored by Mocha Club and Southeastern University, the tour kicks off September 29 in Knoxville, TN and will wrap in Manvell, TX on October 22. Opening for Group 1 Crew will be Rachael Lampa, Rapture Ruckus and Shonlock.
“Touring is absolutely exhilarating and we love meeting each and everyone who comes to our shows,” shares Manwell. “We are thrilled to have Rachael, Rapture and Shonlock joining us. Are you ready for this?”
Blanca adds, “When you break our songs down and listen to the words, they have amazing messages about friendship, messages about love and also just being in a broken place and needing God. To be able to deliver these messages face-to-face with our live show is what we live for.”
Group 1 Crew has become one of the leading Hip-Hop focused acts in the Christian music scene, broadening the parameters of faith-based music with songs that percolate with energy and resonate with the truth of God’s grace. To date, the talented trio had three hit singles break into the Top 5 on Billboard’s Christian CHR Charts, including “Walking On The Stars,” “Keys To The Kingdom” and “Movin’.” Their third Fervent Records release Outta Space Love further pushes the envelope sonically and lyrically, debuting at No.1 on the Soundscan Christian Digital Chart and No. 4 on the overall Christian Album Chart. This album delivered the smash “Walking On The Stars” as well as fan-favorites “Breakdown” and “Live It Up.” They have earned five Dove Awards; three for the Rap/Hip-Hop Album Of The Year category and two for the Rap/Hip Hop Recorded Song with “Movin’ ” and “Walking on the Stars.” With a mutual respect for each other’s gifts, and a shared passion for not only encouraging believers, but also being salt and light to a hurting world, the trio is committed to ministry. Group 1 Crew made their national TV performance debut on The Mo’Nique Show and their music has been featured in a variety of popular television shows, including NBC’s America’s Got Talent, FOX’s The Simple Life, Style Network’s Kimora Lee Simmons: Life in the Fab Lane, MTV’s Run’s House, and The CW’s One Tree Hill.
