Lee Hosts Planetshakers In Benefit Concert

Friday, November 9, 2012

Lee University will host the Australian Christian Worship band, Planetshakers on Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. The performance will benefit Lee student Josh Owens, who was critically injured in an automobile accident on Aug. 19. He has since been in the Trauma Intensive Care Unit at Erlanger Hospital and in the Siskin Rehabilitation Center in Chattanooga. 

Planetshakers formed in 1997 at Planetshakers City Church in Melbourne, Australia, under the leadership of senior pastors Russell and Sam Evans. Since 1997, Planetshakers has toured extensively across the globe, in support of twenty albums.

“We believe God’s given us a mandate to bring breakthrough, to bring a greater level of understanding about what the power and presence of God can do in your life,” said band member Mike Webber. 

The Planetshakers U.S. Tour will feature Israel Houghton, Jentezen Franklin, Rich Wilkerson Jr., Joel Stockstill, and Paul Daugherty.
