Here's our round-up of news in the Christian music world, fresh from the internets!

Christian Music/Entertainment News (5)

  1. The West Coast leg of WinterJam ended Sunday night in Portland, and thus came the finals of the tour's ping pong competition. Colton Dixon and About A Mile came away with the tournament win, besting tour hosts Newsong. Better luck next time, Russ Lee! Colton was pretty excited about the win, and referenced his "killer spin" moves as the gamebreaker.
  2. Blake NeeSmith of Finding Favour must've had a beautiful baby. Because his daughter, Harper, could become the new face of Gerber Baby Food, as she has been accepted into the brand's Photo Search 2014 contest. The winning baby gets $50,000--which will probably pay for one semester of college by the time they are old enough--and the little one could be the brand's 2014 Spokesbaby. Go baby Harper!
  3. Happy birthday to synth-loving pop artist Matthew Langston of Eleventyseven and The Jellyrox! The North Carolinian will likely spend at least some of the day finishing up his exciting new, electro-riffic Christmas song cover that's coming out soon.
  4. Bands stick together. Rock band Lastwatch's bus broke down over the weekend on the way to New Jersey, and lost their primary means of transportation. But another Christian rock band, Shine Bright Baby, came to the rescue, lending their van and getting the band to the venue on time. The band is strapped financially and the broken down bus is definitely a burden, so those who are able to help can find out how on the band's Facebook page.
  5. The way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and if you're looking to make friend with Brandon Heath, apparently he likes Twix bars, although on Twitter recently he admitted he's on a Butterfinger kick these days. That's priceless information, folks.

  1. Love & The Outcome had a great weekend at the GMA Canada Covenant Awards last week. Canada showed the love, and the outcome was three wins for the husband-wife pop duo, including Group of the Year, Album of the Year and Seasonal Song of the Year! Congratulations!
  2. Press Play's Nicole Croteau has been hinting about her latest musical project for months now, but today, her new band The Era, releases its first single. Check out the folk-pop inspired song, "Through You," on the band's YouTube page or on Nicole's Facebook page. She's joined in The Era by her husband, Dave Mohr (of Remedy Drive) and her brother and sister, Tony and Olivia Croteau.
  3. Royal Tailor is looking for merch ideas. They're asking their social media followers for input regarding which of their lyrics would look good on a T-shirt.
