FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH NEWSBOYS SPRING TOUR by Turning Point Media on 2015-03-11 10:09:40
Phoenix — Food for the Hungry is pleased to partner with best-selling GRAMMY®-nominated, Christian music group Newsboys, as the group kicks off its “We Believe...God’s Not Dead” 2015 Spring Tour.
The tour, which began February 12 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, is scheduled to include more than 40 cities this spring, including Austin, Texas; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; Des Moines, Iowa; and Albany, New York, before concluding May 9 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
At each performance, Gotee recording artist Finding Favour will share information about Food for the Hungry and the organization’s child sponsorship program. For each child sponsored on this tour, Newsboys will give back by providing one month of medical treatment for mothers at the New Life Clinic in Uganda to prevent the passing of HIV/AIDS to their unborn babies.
The HIV/AIDS epidemic is particularly close to the heart of Newsboys lead singer Michael Tait, who lost his sister to AIDS after a history of drug abuse. A special video will be played at each show that tells Tait’s sister’s story.
“We are grateful to Newsboys for supporting our work to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS to unborn children,” said FH CEO Gary Edmonds. “With the support of Newsboys and their fans, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of children living in poverty and expand programs that prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS to unborn babies.”
Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys) and Duncan Phillips (drums), Newsboys are one of the most influential bands in Christian music today with more than 8 million units sold, six Gold® records, 33 #1 radio hits, four GRAMMY® nominations and multiple Dove Awards. Their latest recording and debut collection of hymns, Hallelujah For The Cross, released last fall and features the legendary group’s take on nine classics and one new selection.
Founded in 1971, Food for the Hungry provides emergency relief and long-term development programs with operations in more than 20 countries to help the world's most vulnerable people. Learn more by visiting fh.org.

As I sat at the red light, a pick-up pulled up beside me in the other lane. The window was rolled down, and the driver rested his arm lazily on the door ledge. A chihuahua fur baby sat perched in the crook of the driver’s arm, yapping with all its tiny might at the pickup in front of me.
