NASHVILLE, TENN. (ANS) -- American Leprosy Missions and the IXIST Tour are partnering together for an upcoming 2013 tour.
Coming in Winter 2013, the IXIST TOUR will kick off in late February, moving across the U.S. through March and then on to Africa, where the tour will travel to six countries.
IXIST is more than a concert tour. The news release said it is a ministry campaign dedicated to helping people share their testimony. Each night, one local market testimony will be chosen and posted to an ongoing international YouTube campaign, created to inspire others to share their story and consider the work that God is doing through their lives.
The tour will include IXIST Media Sessions featuring on-site interviews at each location; afternoon IXIST In-Stores in select cities, and the IXIST Concert each night.
According to the news release, the tour features the Xist Music roster of leading Urban Christian artists & their ministries, anchored by the Billboard and SoundScan best-selling artists The Ambassador and Sean Simmonds. Supporting artists for the tour include Yaves, D-MAUB, UK based artist Jahaziel, and Nate "NF" Feuerstein.
Three of the faith-based market's leading companies have joined together for the IXIST Tour: urban music label Xist Music, the Elite Talent Agency, and Christian media and events group, FrontGate Media.
According to the news release, the tour comes as Christian hip-hop and urban music is exploding, evidenced most recently by a Billboard charting milestone: TobyMac's "Eye On It" debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Xist Music is the recording label of Xist Worldwide, which produces innovative projects from award-winning artists, who are leaders in the inspirational urban music industry. For more information go to www.XistMusic.com.
