Da’ Truth, The Ambassador, Jessica Reedy and More Performing on the Move Tour 2012
Xist Music and UpLift! Group have joined forces with world-leading child-sponsoring organization Compassion International to present the MOVE TOUR—the highly anticipated follow up from the producers of the acclaimed 25-city MISFiT Tour 2011. MOVE TOUR 2012 is a movement to challenge, refresh and ignite the world through a life-changing MOVE of God. This annual tour brings excitement, inspiration and a strong transformative Biblical message through an electrifying musical experience that will engage any audience.
This year’s MOVE TOUR brings together the fierce creative explosion of seven of today’s leading voices in music & ministry—BET’s “Sunday Best” favorite Jessica Reedy, Hip Hop generals Da’ T.R.U.T.H. & The Ambassador, Christian Hip Hop’s multi-talented rapper/singer/producer Sean Simmonds, Urban Pop artists B.Reith and/or Jai in select markets, and Hip Hop’s favorite event emcee/producer/recording artist DJ MaL-Ski.
In March, MOVE Tour 2012 announced their strategic partnership with FrontGate Media for exclusive representation of sponsorship over the next five years. Scott A. Shuford, founder of FrontGate Media, has experienced this tour and its fan base firsthand. “The MOVE Tour is a cross-market, cross-ethnic, Cross-centric experience of what the church is today. They have created a great opportunity to join in the evangelistic movement God has commissioned to redeem people through the most popular music genre around the world. We at FrontGate see this tour as exactly the kind of value and reach that our company was created to support by making new connection points for companies and ministries with this audience.”
Joining Xist & UpLift! this year for the first time will be Compassion International. “We are thrilled to be the ministry partner for The MOVE Tour,” says Paul Haddix, Director of the Artists Program. “The opportunity to share Compassion’s ministry with MOVE Tour attendees is wonderful and we are excited to see them respond to the needs of children living in poverty around the world.” Returning as national sponsors are brand innovators designbySPIRIT and online ticketing vendor Trinity Ticket Solutions joined by entertainment company Mylache Concerts and new media partners leading Rapzilla.com, HearItFirst.com and HM Magazine.
