Star 99.1 FM presents MercyMe and Tenth Avenue North ’s in concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Sunday evening, March 11.
Mercy Me, one of contemporary Christian music’s most prolific bands, closed out 2017 on a high note with three Dove Awards, including Artist of the Year, and its sixth American Music Award nomination. In 2017, the band’s hit, “Even if,” dominated Star 99.1’s playlist for most of the year. The concert will be held just days before the release of Mercy Me’s film, “I Can Only Image,” the inspiring and unknown true story behind the beloved, chart-topping song that brings ultimate hope to so many. “I Can Only Imagine” is based on the life of lead singer Bart Millard, who wrote the song following the loss of his father.
Tenth Avenue North, known for the depth and vulnerability of their songwriting, burst onto the scene in 2008 with Over and Underneath. With radio staples like “Love Is Here,” “Hold My Heart” and “By Your Side,” the band was named the Gospel Music Association’s New Artist of the Year in 2009. Tenth Avenue North gained further momentum with three additional full-length records that spawned hits like “You Are More,” “Losing,” “Worn” and “No Man Is an Island,” among others, and has sold in excess of one million albums to date.
