IXIST Tour Delivers the Best Talent in Urban Christian Music United to Create a Testimonial & Concert Experience Where Attendees Share in the Story Throughout U.S. and Africa
Nashville, TN – ELITE Talent Agency and Xist Music are honored to announce another partnership for the upcoming 2013 IXIST Tour. The JESUS Film Project and the IXIST Tour will partner in the launch of the JESUS Film Media mobile app.
The JESUS Film Project introduces JESUS Film Media, a free app providing anyone with an Android or iOS device access to the complete library of The JESUS Film Project—some 64,000 video clips in 1,100 languages. With access anywhere, anytime, the JESUS Film Media App allows users to instantly view or share a film clip with anyone. By eliminating barriers like language, literacy, electricity and more, JESUS and additional videos can be shared without hassle. Through the app, users can view the 2-hour original film, JESUS, with 61 teaching segments, in more than 1,100 languages; Magdalena, The Story of Jesus, and My Last Day, all subsequent films about Jesus’ life and death; and clips from the Global Short Film Network library—all readily available to help share the Gospel. The app is available at http://app.jesusfilmmedia.org and through the Apple App iPhone Store and Google Play.
The JESUS Film Media app joins previously announced IXIST Tour sponsors including American Leprosy Missions (http://www.leprosy.org,) the oldest and largest non-profit organization in the U.S. working to cure and care for people with leprosy and Buruli ulcer; and iTickets.com (http://www.iTickets.com,) the Official Ticketing and VIP Packages Partner for the tour.
IXIST is more than a concert tour. IXIST is a ministry campaign dedicated to helping people share their testimony. Each night, one local market testimonial will be chosen and posted from an ongoing international YouTube channel created to inspire others to share their story and consider the work that God is doing through their lives.
Coming in 2013, the IXIST TOUR will kick off in late February, routing across the U.S. through March and then on to Africa, where the tour will travel to six countries. The tour will include IXIST Media Sessions featuring on-site interviews at each location; afternoon IXIST In-Stores in select cities, and, of course, the IXIST Concert each night. The tour features the Xist Music roster of leading Urban Christian artists & their ministries, anchored by the Billboard and SoundScan best-selling artists The Ambassador and Sean Simmonds. Supporting artists for the tour include Yaves, D-MAUB, UK based artist Jahaziel, and Nate “NF” Feuerstein.
Three of the faith-based market’s leading companies have joined together for the IXIST Tour: urban music label Xist Music, the formidable artist & booking agency Elite Talent Agency, and top Christian media & events group, FrontGate Media. The tour comes as Christian hip-hop and urban music is exploding, evidenced most recently by a Billboard charting milestone: TobyMac’s "Eye On It" debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
