Christian music news: Sanctus Real Brings Hope to Community Devastated by Teen Deaths

Latest christian music:
On September 11, Sanctus Real, will travel to Marshall, MN on its The Face of Love One Stop Tour to bring hope to the city, which has been devastated by tragic teen deaths. Band members will spend time with area families and perform a free concert for the whole community at 8:00 p.m. at Marshall Senior High School.

Total Axxess radio host Jayar will emcee the concert and host the event live on Total Axxess, heard in more than 100 markets across the country as part of the WAY-FM Media Network.

As one of the top Christian rock bands today, Sanctus Real members are also about being the �face of love� and tangibly expressing their faith in action. Together with Total Axxess, they were looking for a community to serve with The Face of Love ONE STOP Tour. After Total Axxess listeners were encouraged to write in and express a need in their community, and asked how that need could be met, numerous emails came in from all over America.

�There were a lot of people writing in who needed labor or financial resources beyond what we could provide,� says Sanctus Real front man Matt Hammitt. �When we read the e-mail from Marshall, we knew we were capable of providing their foremost�

�As we began talking to the principal and other leaders in the school and community, we realized that this was where we needed to go,� adds Jayar. �We received more than one email from this community of about 12,000 people, where eight teenagers over a three-month period lost their lives in separate accidents. Seven were from one high school. We want to honor these kids on one special night and invite the whole community out to one special place.�
