ARTIST OF THE DAY
Andy Cherry

Andy is a worship leader at a mega-church in North Carolina, CharlotteOne. His songs are first and foremost, worship anthems. They were born out of a desire to get God's people asking hard questions about their faith - putting in the work - becoming desperate for God's will, no matter what the cost.

Worship Revelation: One morning, leading worship at church, Andy was silently wishing to be anywhere else. He was tired and felt like nothing he was doing mattered. It was then that God revealed to him, Hey Andy, I don't need you to do this. I want you to. Andy decided it would be best to get on board with what God is doing, rather than try to make music about himself.

Family: Andy is the youngest of four siblings. All sisters.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Audio Adrenaline

Mark Stuart and Will McGinniss met at Kentucky Christian University. Stuart and his brother David were putting together a rock band and McGinniss struck up a friendship with the pair. Along with David and Barry Blair they launched a band called A-180. The band recorded two independent albums before signing a record contract with ForeFront Records. It was then that they officially became Audio Adrenaline.

Christian music would never be the same - or youth camp. Hits like Big House and We're A Band propelled the band to the forefront of a thriving Christian rock scene in the mid-90s. They were headliners for every Christian festival on the planet - and toured ceaselessly. Ultimately, that took a toll on their families and relationships. Exhaustion and family strain, plus a vocal disease for lead singer Mark Stuart led to the end of Audio Adrenaline.

Or so it seemed...

Just last year the band reformed - now with Kevin Max (formerly of dcTalk) as the new lead singer - with Mark Stuart writing and producing for the band (still unable to sing).  Proceeds from the band's new album go to fund the Hands & Feet Project in Haiti!

Kerrie Roberts

Kerrie Roberts is a big voice in a little package. She grew up singing in church, where she'd often have to stand on a crate so that people sitting further back than the front row could see where her powerful voice was coming from! Kerrie's dad was a pastor and her mom the choir director for their church. Being front and center in church was bred into her from birth!

Kerrie began writing her first songs in high school, performing one during her own graduation. When the time came for college, Kerrie chose to get her degree in Studio Music and Jazz Vocal Performance at the University of Miami.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The Digital Age

Once upon a time there was a collective of Texan musicians who led worship all across the land. They innovated Christian music for nearly fifteen years, sparked revolutions in worship music and inspired countless lives for Christ. They were the David Crowder*Band. But all great things must come to an end, and the journey of this pioneering group is no different.

But in it’s stead, four men who were core members of DC*B formed a new outfit with a vision for the future. They became: The Digital Age.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
The Museum

The Museum took shape when singer Ben Richter and guitarist Geoffrey Ashcraft moved from Texas to Georgia and plugged into a church where drummer/programmer Josh Kirk was the janitor. Soon they were leading local worship services together and then traveling on musical mission trips overseas.

Joined by bassist Chris Brink in 2009, The Museum is continuing its commitment to global outreach while also developing an important bond with churches across the United States. Ben’s passion for staying rooted in a spiritual community brought the group to Briarlake Church near Atlanta where they still lead worship most Sundays. Additionally, the guys have helped out at neighboring North Point Community Church’s partner Atlanta locations and around the country.  Plus Ben also leads worship at the multi-site Elevation Church in North Carolina on a recurring basis.

What's in a Name: The Museum is actually named after a revolution. During a 2008 mission trip to Romania, drummer Josh Kirk found himself at a ceremony commemorating the end of Communism in that country twenty years earlier. “There was a small, humble museum near the square that told the story,” he recalls. “Turns out it was a group of Christians that actually brought about that political and social revolution.” Twenty years later the political changes were celebrated but the spiritual center of the revolution had been mostly forgotten. Kirk saw little evidence of Christian influence in the culture. “That little museum remained though,” he adds, “offering a glimpse into the kind of faith that can turn a nation upside down.”

Fun & Games: If there's a basketball court nearby, that's where you'll find the guys of The Museum during tour stops. Plus, now that it's baseball season you'll find them proudly supporting the Atlanta Braves.
