The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular has officially begun! Fans from all over America are gearing up for what appears to be the BIGGEST tour yet. Between the melodic ballads from Newsong, the powerful lyrics from Danny Gokey or the electrifying performance from Newsboys United, fans all had plenty of excitement as the show kicked off in Jacksonville, Florida and it will continue to draw huge crowds in cities across the USA.
What to expect
The night is hosted by founders and artists, Newsong and also features Mandisa, Ledger, Hollyn and more! Fans can expect a completely redesigned show with a stage in the middle of the arena to bring them closer than ever before! I attended the first performance in Jacksonville and was certainly not disappointed. The energy in the room was electrifying and there is no doubt in my mind that lives were impacted heavily.
I was able to catch up with Winter Jam’s very own, Jordan Willett, after the show and ask her what she though of the first night… Mandisa (pictured below certainly made a powerful impact!)
“My favorite part was Mandisa’s set and Duncan spinning on the drums! Her song ‘Bleed the Same’ is a beautiful reminder that we are all real people that are loved by our King. I truly think that people connect with each other during this song! The crowd reacts to that! The crowd also reacted to Greg’s message and him challenging them to go and reach people for the Kingdom!”
Guest speaker, Greg Stier of Dare 2 Share witnessed his rough urban family being utterly transformed by the power of the Gospel. It impacted him so deeply he made it his life’s ambition to spread this message to as many as possible. He will be speaking throughout the tour.
An incredible first week
