In case you did not know, the Newsboys just happen to be one of my all-time favorite bands. Their music has helped me through so many different chapters in my life. I have kept up with it as they have changed and adapted over the years, and I always enjoy it. Sure, like most bands, they have gone through some personnel changes but they have been around for decades and their music still echos across the globe Here are a couple examples of their powerful worship music from different periods:
Well, this beings us to this past Saturday, October 6th, a great day indeed! It was similar to most of my Saturdays these days. I got ready to work a concert with 105.3, the local Christian radio station I work for part time. The concert was at Overlake Christian Church and the headliner was the Newsboys, featuring Building 429 and local band The Acclaim.
I had the privilege of leading the promotions teams for 105.3 at the event, which meant leading the Meet and Greet with the headliner..which meant the Newsboys! After some Q&A between the audience and the band, I watch as the 200 M&G attendees stood and had their picture taken with the guys. Once they were all through, I finally got to meet the group that has meant so much to me! Here are a couple pictures from there:
Needless to say, it was a great evening! I have been to several Newsboys concerts, and have even been able to work a couple, but this was by far the best. I got to meet one of my top favorite bands of all time, how could it not have been a great shift??
