The Orleans previews Winter Jam Tour Spectacular

9 November 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Christian music's largest annual tour Winter Jam, featuring Lecrae, Mac Powell from Third Day, Andy Mineo, Building 429, Family Force 5, NewSong, Moriah Peters presenting TRALA, speaker Nick Hall, along with Pre-Jam artists Dan Bremnes, Mallary Hope and Westover, returns to Orleans Arena on Saturday, 11 November.

Grammy Award-winning hip-hop trailblazer Lecrae burst into the music scene in 2004 with his debut album Real Talk, released through his co-owned independent record label Reach Records. In 2008, Lecrae released Rebel, which became the first hip-hop album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel chart. A few years later, Lecrae released his album Gravity, which was later deemed as one of the most important albums in Christian hip-hop history by Rapzilla and Atlanta Daily World, winning him a Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album. The hip-hop artists made history with his No. 1 album Anomaly, which simultaneously topped the Billboard 200 and the Gospel charts. Lecrae has received multiple awards, including a Billboard Music Award, BET Award and two Grammy Awards.

Mac Powell grew up in a musical home, listening to his parents sing and play the guitar and him singing at a small Baptist church. After moving to Atlanta, Georgia, Powell pursued his passion for music and his faith by joining the band Third Day. Together the band sold nearly 10 million albums, earning four Grammy Awards, an American Music Award and 24 Dove Awards. In 2009, Third Day was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. In addition to his contributions to Third Day, Powell has released two solo country and rock albums, including Mac Powell and Southpaw, collaborating with the songwriters Darius Rucker, Christian Bush (Sugarland), Chris Stapleton and Travis Tritt.

Best known for his reflective lyricism, hip hop recording artist Andy Mineo began his musical career producing music during his middle school and high school years, and later forming a rap group under Syracuse University's Marshall Street Records. Today, Mineo is an influential Christian hip-hop artist who has released several hit albums, including "Uncomfortable," which became the No. 1 independent record in the country, delivering a No. 3 and No. 10 position on Billboard's Hip Hop and Top 200 album charts. Mineo's Uncontrollable Tour sold out iconic venues across the U.S. and Europe allowing him to reach more fans around the world. Aside from creating albums, Mineo scripts, produces and directs his music videos, and has created a three-season web series on YouTube called Saturday Morning Car-Tunez, which has garnered more than one million views.
