The “Carry Me Tour” with Christian contemporary musicians Josh Wilson, Citizen Way, and Dan Bremnes found their way to the little community of Fayette on Thursday evening. Hosted by the Fayette United Methodist Church, the uplifting concert was nearly sold-out as families found their seats among very talented musicians singing their message of God’s love.
Josh Wilson, a 2012 ASCAP Christian Songwriter/Artist of the year and recording artist has an impressive track record in CCM with over 200,000 career album sales, half a million track sales, over 2.5 million YouTube views and 4 top-5 AC singles.
Citizen Way was formed in 2004 and is comprised of two sets of siblings. Their latest single “How Sweet The Sound” is currently #4 on Christian AC and climbing.
Dan Bremnes released his first full-length album “Your Strength” in 2010 which received radio play across Canada and 6 GMA Canada Covenant Nominations including “Male Vocalist Of The Year”. He has since toured with artists such as Jars Of Clay, Mercy Me and most recently Steven Curtis Chapman on The Glorious Unfolding Tour. His new single on Capitol CMG is titled “Beautiful” and will release in July 2014.
Among the amazing sights and sounds of the “Carry Me Tour”, was an introduction to Compassion International; a child-advocacy ministry that pairs compassionate people with those who are suffering from poverty. The ministry releases children from spiritual, economic, social, and physical poverty. The goal is for each child to become a responsible and fulfilled adult. Compassion International asks for sponsorship to children that are in need in other countries. With different areas of sponsorship; child survival program, leadership development and child sponsorship, it gives a child the opportunity to have a better life than what they would have without the sponsorship. This ministry is near and dear to recording-artist Dan Bremnes, as he and his wife are sponsors that recently met their sponsor child in the Dominican Republic.
