Helping define the sound of Christian music for more than two decades, Newsboys’ live performances—including their recently concluded “We Believe…God’s Not Dead” 2015-2016 Tour—continue to sell out venues across the country. Comprised of lead vocalist Michael Tait, Jody Davis (guitar), Jeff Frankenstein (keys), and Duncan Phillips (drums), the band has sold more than 8 million units, amassed 33 No. 1 radio hits, four Grammy nominations, two American Music Award nominations, and multiple Dove Awards.
