2: Jason Alvarez signs copies of his new album Time For Miracles after performing at the Seeds of Hope Conference in Orange, New Jersey. The pastor and recording artist first topped the charts in 1975 (as part of the duo Shirley & Company) with the international #1 disco hit “Shame Shame Shame!”

3 and 4: American Idol favorite Colton Dixon grabs some chat time with Elisabeth Hasselbeck (“The View,” “Fox & Friends”) backstage at the 2015 K-LOVE Fan Awards. The singer/songwriter’s recent whereabouts also include filming a music video for “Through All Of It” (as captured on this hi-tech behind the scenes screen).

5 and 6: Who’s that singing alongside Irish singer/songwriter turned international hit-maker Hozier? A close look to the guitar wielder’s left (along with a glowing introduction later in the night) reveal none other than Christian music mainstay Rachael Lampa, a talented solo star in her own right who added soulful support to the burgeoning artist’s sold out Chicago show.
