Michael Tait will be stepping into lead singer for Newsboys while Peter Furler stepping down from their touring schedule. Peter will remain actively involved with the band in song writing and studio work as they continue to produce some great music and impact the world and spread the mission to all of their fans.
Michael Tait had this to say about the opportunity:
“For years dc Talk and newsboys have been family and thus shared the same loyal and adoring fans,” says Michael Tait. “When I received the initial call from newsboys to consider joining the band as lead singer, I was speechless! I immediately sought wise counsel and flooded the heavens with endless prayers for insight and vision, and I soon received a clear and definite peace. Last weekend, I had the opportunity to perform my first show as newsboys’ frontman to an audience of 12,000 people. I was completely wrapped in love and support by newsboys’ fans, who are clearly the best fans on the planet. Now I know this is exactly where I belong in this new and wonderful moment in my life’s history. This is a definite highlight of my career and for my 20+ years of walking with Jesus, and I am humbled, proud and privileged to call myself a newsboy.”
This is so exciting for me. They’ll be in Indianapolis on April 4th, I’ve got to figure out a way to make it to that concert for sure!
