Fresh off the release of Love Come To Life: The Redeemed Edition (Fervent Records/Word), contemporary Christian mainstay Big Daddy Weave is back on the road, turning in new tunes alongside plenty from its Dove Award-winning past.


Recent favorites like “Overwhelmed” and “The Only Name (Yours Will Be)” provided musically straightforward, lyrically uplifting moments, while the older “Fields Of Grace” and the Jesus Culture cover “Your Love Never Fails” found the fellas jamming with joy for a standing-room-only audience.


Hands down the hottest hip-hop act in Christian music, Group 1 Crew tore through the current faith-fueled party Fearless (Fervent/Curb/Word), including chart-toppers such as, “Dangerous,” “He Said” and “His Kind Of Love,” which could easily match, if not surpass, mainstream contemporaries like Pharrell Williams, Black Eyed Peas and Outkast.


Opener Tim Timmons, a relative newcomer on the Reunion Records roster, presented powerful singer/songwriter material off his debut disc Cast My Cares, along with a moving message of daily, full reliance on the Lord, in spite of living with an incurable cancer.
