"Over the years, our fans have seen small glimpses of our offstage moments, but now, we are so excited to share hours of exclusive, never before seen footage,” shares Jeff Frankenstein. “Our fans will get a chance to hear more about our hearts, our families, and our ministry."
The show’s producer and host, Mari White, chose the Newsboys
over other Christian acts because of an experience she had at one of their concerts last year in New York City. White admits when she arrived to the show she saw how diverse the audience was, how people were singing along with them, and most importantly, how the band had no shame in sharing their faith. It was then that she realized she needed to share their inspiration.
With 27 No. 1 hits and seven million records sold over the last two decades, Newsboys
have appealed to multiple generations of Christian music lovers. However, this is a show that goes far beyond the music to show how faith shapes the lives of these major performers within Christian music, sure to be compelling viewing to the wider faith-based audience that reaches well beyond the Newsboys
’ millions of fans.
