Christian Music News, New Christian Music News dc Talk's legendary "Jesus Freak" turned 21 today. The lead single from the album of the same name, released on this day in 1995, changed the Christian music industry forever. 

The song won dc Talk, comprised of TobyMac, Kevin Max and Michael Tait, 3 Dove Awards (Song of the Year, Rock Recorded Song of the Year, Short Form Music Video of the Year) and quickly became a game-changer for the group as it found great success on both Christian radio and even some non-Christian stations. The track was praised by many, including Entertainment Weekly and the Chicago Tribune for its "textured vocals, aggressive guitar, and solid songwriting."
 


Although Michael Tait (Newsboys) and TobyMac often play the song at their solo shows, dc Talk hasn't played it together in 16 years. To catch the band's long-awaited reunion and hear this iconic moment live, make sure you're part of dc Talk's Jesus Freak Cruise in July of 2017.
