Nashville, Tenn. … Just two weeks after his chart-topping final album was released, David Crowder embarked on a promotional trip with K-LOVE Radio supporting the efforts of the Souper Bowl of Caring.
Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement of young people working to fight hunger and poverty in their own communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game. More than 10,000 people were involved in the four-day stretch of sold out shows in multiple cities across the country where over 53,000 pounds of food was given to support the cause.
sixstepsrecords and K-LOVE teamed up to bring Crowder and the new K-LOVE morning show, Craig, Amy and Kankelfritz, to Charlotte, N.C., Knoxville, Tenn., Memphis, Tenn. and Indianapolis, Ind. last week.
The purpose was to help fight hunger and poverty by creating awareness and supporting the local food drive efforts of Souper Bowl of Caring. Following a live, network broadcast in each city, with the partnership of local host churches, Crowder performed an evening acoustic concert where admission was a non-perishable food item, donated to a local food pantry connected to the Souper Bowl of Caring.
David Crowder*Band’s final record, Give Us Rest (A Requiem Mass in C [The Happiest of All Keys]) sold over 50,000 copies in its first week making it the No. 2 record in the country behind Adele’s 21, and the No. 1 new album on the charts.
With a nearly constant No. 1 hold on the iTunes ® Overall Albums chart, Give Us Rest offered David Crowder*Band the highest chart and sales debut of their over decade-long career.
