Sonrise Notes for June 3rd....
...It’s the first weekend of June! A lot of folks are out of school and trips are being planned! Maybe you are heading to AtlantaFest at Stone Mountain Park in a couple of weeks and if you are, you’ll get a chance to see acts like Tobymac, Jonny Diaz, Jeremy Camp, Casting Crowns and a bunch more. While you’re there, check out the Scenic Railroad ride, the Summit Skyride, the Yogi Bear 4D Adventure and you can hike to the top of Stone Mountain! It’s 825 feet tall and covers 583 acres... good exercise! Find out more at www.atlantafest.com.
...Tenth Avenue North’s new album “The Struggle” will be released in August, but you can pre-order it now at www.iTunes.com.
If you’re not familiar with Lecrae, he grew up on the streets of Houston, San Diego, Denver and Dallas, but at the age of 19 a Christian leader encouraged him to attend a special conference that turned his world upside down. Today he is the co-founder of Reach Records and Reach Life Ministries, reaching into the lives of young people around the world with a powerful message. See the video for his song “Background” on our “Features” page, under “Videos.”
...CreationFest 2012 is coming up this summer and this is a little different than most festivals, because it takes place on two different weekends in two different locations. There’s Creation Northeast in Mt. Union, PA June 27-30 and Creation Northwest in Enumclaw, WA July 18-21: Both shows include Switchfoot, Thousand Foot Krutch, Tenth Avenue North, Red, Newsboys, Family Force 5, Kutless, and more. See who else is playing and even get your tickets at www.creationfest.com.
...Mat Kearney will be touring with Train and Andy Grammer this summer, starting July 26 in Charlotte. See if they’re coming to town on our “Concerts” page. Then head over to the “Features” page and click “Videos” to see some behind the scenes footage from the video shoot for his new song Ships in the Night.
...MercyMe’s new video for their song “The Hurt & The Healer” was just released last week. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out at www.facebook.com/sonriseradio.
