Lee University U-Church To Host City Harmonic

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The U-Church season at Lee University will kick off this spring with a live performance by the City Harmonic on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.

In partnership with the Lee University Food Bank, all attendees are asked to bring a canned food item for students and others in need in the community. 

The award-winning Canadian band, which uses its gift for rock and Brit-pop music to spread the word of the Gospels, is just ending its “I Have a Dream” tour. After five months on the road, touring America and sharing its vision of Christ-inspired hope, The City Harmonic’s unique blend of popular music and particular reverence is growing ever more popular.

“If Coldplay sang the Lord's Prayer or added a worship set to its stadium tour, this is what it would sound like,” says Christianity Today. “The City Harmonic's lyrics are a cut above some other worship bands following the same trend.” 

The band has been earning attention since 2010 when they self-released six of their songs, including the popular “Manifesto.” They were noted as the New Artists of the Year at the 2011 Covenant Awards in Alberta, receiving two other awards for their music. The release of their album, “I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home)” inspired their recent American tour where they helped to communicate what they call the “Christian dream.”

“Both art and worship are participatory acts—not consumptive acts,” says the band’s frontman Elias Dummer. “What is meaningful for people is the experience, that creative moment when art is shared. To us, it’s almost as though these songs just don't sound right without everybody involved.”

The Democratic nominee campaigning against Lamar Alexander is a man whose radio ads call for “change,” “fair” taxes and more jobs.  Sounds good, huh?   ... (click for more)
