Nashville, TN (November 11, 2019)
Two of Christian music’s most beloved sibling vocalists, Southern Gospel standout Lynda Randle and Newsboys frontman Michael Tait, are set to join forces this season for four exclusive Together For Christmas concerts around the country. With unmatched harmonies that effortlessly bridge genres, the duo will present an evening of sacred carols, holiday classics and cherished Christmas memories.
The concerts will also highlight selections from both artists’ repertoires, including Randle’s signature songs “God On The Mountain” and “Motherless Child,” and Tait’s Newsboys hits “God’s Not Dead” and “We Believe,” among other favorites. In addition, the siblings will reminisce on family Christmases past and Randle will share a reading from her acclaimed children’s book, What’s So Great About Mama’s Plate?
Launching November 30 at Immanuel Baptist Church in Wichita, Kansas, the evening will feature Randle, Tait and their band along with a 50-voice choir. The Together For Christmas concert series will also stop at the Bell Cultural Events Center in Olathe, Kansas, on December 3, where special guests are slated to include Randle’s daughter Joy, as well as MidAmerica Nazarene University’s renowned Heritage Choir. Additionally, the duo will visit Henderson, Texas’ First Baptist Church on December 1 and Christian Heritage Church in Graniteville, South Carolina, on December 15.
“Michael and I are so excited about this special tour,” Randle says. “We love singing together but we’re each so busy doing our own thing throughout the year we rarely have the opportunity to share the stage. Growing up in a large, close-knit family, music and togetherness were—and still are—important to us, and what better time to celebrate these things than at Christmas?”
“So many families are torn apart and at odds with each other, and Christmas can be a lonely time,” she adds. “But God is still in the restoration business and we want to help remind folks that Christmas can also be an opportunity to strengthen family relationships and deepen close friendships.”
“Life doesn’t get much better than being on stage with one of your best friends on the planet Earth—in this case, my big sister Lynda Tait Randle,” Tait says. “We can’t wait to be Together For Christmas once again this year.”
