Here's what's happening TODAY in Christian music...
1. It's music video season, that's for sure, and Jeremy Camp is the latest artist to get in front of the camera. He's shooting a video for his song, "Same Power."
2. Matt Hammitt has announced he's leaving Sanctus Real, but not before the band releases a "best of" compilation on his way out. The album will feature one new song, "Longer than a Lifetime," which you'll probably hear on the radio pretty soon.
3. Kyle Kupecky and Kelsey Kupecky got to hold physical copies of their book The Chase for the first time yesterday. The book, which releases September 1st, encourages teens and 20-something young people to rely on God to write their love story.
4. Instant besties. Ryan Stevenson took to Instagram yesterday to express his brotherly love for Newsboys frontman Michael Tait. He said he couldn't be happier to tour with Tait the rest of the calendar year.
5. So many people pre-ordered Sidewalk Prophets' new album Something Different, that it took a forklift to lift the pallets of CDs. The band was blown away by the response, and said looking at the massive amounts of CDs made the new album seem real.
6. Matt Redman met a boy named Chase this week, whose family uses "10,000 Reasons" in the fight against the cancer that's plaguing Chase. Matt considered the meeting an honor, and the experience reminded all involved that worship is more than just songs; it's balm for the soul.
