These were my Top 5 hits exactly 10 years ago this weekend – Sunday March 23RD 2008.
I saw Newsboys LIVE in concert last night in downtown Fort Lauderdale Florida at First Baptist Church. The jam-packed sanctuary was alive for God for their 27-hit set. Current lead singer Michael Tait led the first 6 hits, and then he began the 7TH hit “He Reigns” (one of my all-time favorites). After the first chorus Peter Furler and Phil Joel walked out front-and-center to continue the jam, and then they stampeded through 12 more of their classic hits of the 1990s and 2000s as Michael Tait took a break backstage. (Phil Joel was out earlier as one of the opening acts with his current band Zealand. Adam Agee of Stellar Kart and Audio Adrenaline was the first opening act and the host of the show.) After a short intermission Michael Tait returned for 7 more recent hits including “We Believe”. “Jesus Freak”, and “God’s Not Dead. For the encore the entire 6-man band were united on stage for their 27TH hit of the night, “The Cross Has The Final Word”.
It was an AMAZING show from start to finish, and the several thousand in attendance were on their feet singing, dancing, clapping, and raising arms in unison. It was a beautiful night for God’s church family in Fort Lauderdale Florida.
I’ll be back on Sunday with Scripture, and then on Monday it’s my brand new Top 10 music chart featuring a whole bunch of new entries. See you then.
… It’s all God’s children singing Glory Glory – Hallelujah – He reigns – He reigns.
