DC FEST 2014! SATURDAY!  

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Mandisa

Mandisa was a fan favorite on Season 5 of American Idol, going to the final rounds despite dealing with some harsh words from the judges about her weight. She has discussed at length in her book Idol Eyes: My New Perspective on Faith, Fat & Fame, that those hurtful words cut deeply, causing a lot of pain and embarrassment.

Now with three GRAMMY nominations under her belt, and four full albums breaking the charts in Christian music - Mandisa is showing the world that Christians are real people - with real problems but who have a REAL Savior.

Her Struggle: On the whole weight thing - Mandisa has lost over 100 pounds through diet and exercise!

“A struggle is a struggle, and Jesus is there through it all. He is there in compassion and grace. I have found that what He has spoken to me through these songs has been encouraging and I think that’ll be true for other people who are going through their own hard times,” - Mandisa

ARTIST OF THE DAY
NewSong

After 30 years and 20 #1 radio hits - NewSong is still pushing the limits to reach a new generation for Christ. Members have come and gone - and some fresh young musicians have joined the core group to produce a sound that is both fresh and classic NewSong.

When Eddie Carswell and Billy Goodwin, who continue to lead the evolving group, started out in 1981 at Morningside Baptist Church in Valdosta, Georgia, neither of them imagined NewSong would repeatedly outdo itself for so many years. Now the guys are headed into their fourth decade of music and just keeps getting better!

Trend Setters: NewSong founded and continue to tour as a part of WinterJam. This massive multi-artist American tour brings Christian music's biggest acts to cities all across America and never charges more than $10. The goal - to bring the best music to everyone - and provide an incredible time of worship for the whole family!

Rush Of Fools

Rush of Fools burst onto the Christian music scene in 2007 earning ASCAP Song of the Year honors for Undo and garnered four Dove Award nominations. But then, their trials came - with the folding of their record label and a subsequent drawn out legal process.

Over the past several years, the band served their local community, toured regionally and kept writing songs. Those songs, written through a very tough time, turned out to be full of Hope.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Steve Fee

Steve Fee led the Worship band Fee out of Northpoint Church from 2005-2010. Along with serving as a worship pastor for the mega-church outside of Atlanta, GA - the band toured, recorded albums and led youth events around the country. But in 2010, suddenly the band broke up and Steve was removed from his place of leadership in the church.

Steve was caught in the midst of secret sin.  This sin destroyed his family and band - not to mention betraying the trust of his entire community of faith. But like many leaders who have fallen, from the depths of despair - you learn about the true depths of God’s grace.

Single: Grace

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Tricia

Raised in a Christian home, Tricia and her sister Melissa experienced their share of adversity and struggles. When they met Maz Hsu, a singer/musician, the three girls immediately hit it off. All three felt called to create music to inspire teenage girls like themselves, who dealt with depression and insecurity.

Thus Superchick was born. They would go on to rock the world over, win Dove awards and even garner a GRAMMY nod. In between Superchick albums and tours, Tricia and her musician/producer husband Nick Baumhardt (Stellar Kart, FM Static, Thousand Foot Krutch) began to record worship music - and then they began visiting churches to lead worship. It’s become a second calling amidst their busy lives to SLOW DOWN - and simply worship the Lord.

Hobby Lobby: Tricia is also an accomplished makeup artist and clothing designer. You know, when she’s not busy being all musical.
