Today on the show, we shared some artist news.
We also reflected on the Champions of Character Game that brought over 2,000 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders of Mount Vernon City Schools to Ariel Arena.
Jonathon’s artist news story was about We The Kingdom:
Fresh off winning Contemporary Christian Artist of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year at this year’s Dove Awards, We The Kingdom has teamed up with Dante Bowe to release a special version of the group’s chart-topping single — “God So Loved (Live),” available now. “About a month ago, we shared the live video of ‘God So Loved’ with Dante Bowe from the Worship Together Conference,” says Ed Cash. “It was such a special experience that we decided to release the audio everywhere you listen to music. It has brought us great joy getting to play this song across the country this year, and we are deeply grateful to Dante for joining us on this new version! We pray that you feel encouraged and pursued by your Heavenly Father as you listen!” Written by We The Kingdom and featured on their award-winning debut album, ‘Holy Water,’ the studio version of “God So Loved” served as the group’s second No. 1 single on the Billboard Christian Airplay chart. It was also nominated for Worship Recorded Song of the Year at this year’s Dove Awards.
Dylan’s artist news story was about NEEDTOBREATHE:
NEEDTOBREATHE is coming out with a documentary called “Into The Mystery”. This was also an album that NEEDTOBREATHE released during the summer of 2021. This documentary is going to be released in over 500 movie theaters nationwide tomorrow. This is a peak behind the curtain of what the band does during recording. This documentary is about how during the COVID-19 pandemic the band went to a historic house-turned-recording studio in remote Tennessee to work on new music. Over a three week period, the band lived at the house and made a album about the turbulent moments that were happening during that time. The documentary is about how they were dealing with fear and isolation just like everyone else. Here is what the band had to say in their own words, “We’re big fans of music documentaries where you get to actually watch the artist creating in the space where the record is made.” “Getting to see an idea stretch and grow into a finished song is really inspiring, but we’ve never really let our fans see behind the curtain. Now people will get to pull up a chair and become a part of the process as we create our eighth studio album in an old house in the hills of Tennessee.” The documentary will be in select theaters in Ohio. The closest theater the documentary will be showed at is at the Cinemark 14 Mansfield in Ontario, OH.
