Nashville, Tenn. — Hallelujah For The Cross, the debut hymns collection from Gold-selling, GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys, releases today from First Company Management/Capitol Christian Distribution. Produced by Seth Mosley, the project features the legendary group’s take on nine classics and one new selection.
Hallelujah For The Cross includes the title-cut and debut single, which is currently impacting Christian radio around the country. The album also showcases a new arrangement of Newsboys’ “Where You Belong” with “Turn Your Eyes On Jesus,” as well as favorite hymns “Jesus Paid It All”; “Holy, Holy, Holy”; “It Is Well”; and “All Creatures Of Our God And King,” among others.
“Hymns are important to me,” says Newsboys frontman Michael Tait. “We picked through songs that went way, way, way back into my past and my dad’s Baptist church. I love modern worship but I just love that old stuff because they were written in such desperate and perilous times, and out of great pain comes great resolve, I think. When I sing them, they go deeper in ways to me than a lot of things I reach out for when I’m in that spiritual drought.”
In addition, Newsboys were one of three Christian artists recently nominated for an American Music Award. The band’s second career nomination, Newsboys join Casting Crowns and Hillsong UNITED in the Favorite Artist - Contemporary Inspirational category this year. The 2014 American Music Awards will air live on ABC at 8 pm ET on November 23 from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
Newsboys are currently headlining the 35-city fall "We Believe Tour," with special guests Family Force 5 and 7eventh Time Down. The tour, which has seen sellouts everywhere it has visited, hits Dallas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Duluth, Minnesota; Rockford, Illinois; and Houston, among other cities, before concluding November 16 in Youngstown, Ohio.
With five Gold records, more than 8 million units sold, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations and multiple Dove Awards, among numerous other accolades, Newsboys are one of the most influential bands in Christian music today. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), the title-cut from the group’s best-selling 2012 recording, God’s Not Dead, topped the CHR chart for seven consecutive weeks and garnered an RIAA Gold certification. Newsboys’ recent history-making #1 hit, “We Believe,” topped the Billboard Christian Music chart for 15 consecutive weeks to become the band's longest-running #1 single to date.

ARTICLE Slightly Obsessed #186: When the Path Ahead Is Fearsome
The room was dark and shadowed, the only sound within its walls the rhythmic whoosh of the ventilator beside my son’s bed. I sat on an uncomfortable chair jammed into one corner of the room. In the faint light that fell from the window across the pages of the Bible I held, I tried to corral my stampeding fears long enough to find some comfort from God’s Word. Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
