The response has been enthusiastic for Rush Of Fools' first headlining tour, Wonder Of The World
, in support of their latest CD. The show has a strong lineup of incredible talent that also includes; Jimmy Needham, Sarah Reeves, and Joy Lippard. When the tour ends on April 5th, it will have covered seventeen cities with the show performing before an estimated ten-thousand people. The tour recently played the Nashville area at Metro Baptist Church in Goodlettsville with a sold out crowd, the third sell out on the tour to date. The Nashville appearance garnered media support with a feature in the Nashville City Paper and interviews on The Fish and WAY-FM's Total Axxess. The tour is being sponsored by Freedom Begins Here, a non-profit organization that is working to stop pornography and sexual addiction through research tools available for churches and individuals.
"It seems almost hilarious to think of where God has brought us fools from Alabama in such a short time," says Kevin Huguley, Rush Of Fools. "We see the providential plan of God in our lives more now than ever. What is also remarkable is to have such phenomenal artists out on the road with US for our very first tour. Thanks to Jimmy and his gang, Sarah, Joy and our incredible crew for such a memorable moment in our career. A huge thanks goes to Freedom Begins Here, our headlining sponsor and long time ministry partner, who care so much to see the Church freed from sexual addiction and pornography. Over all things, we just thank Jesus for the cross, for without the shedding of His blood, there would be no remission for our sin. Soli Deo Gloria, to God alone be the glory for the WOTW tour! Grace and peace."
