Mike Lee has posted a music video for the track “Different”. The song is taken from his latest album, titled Awakening Hearts, weich is available everywhere now. Watch below.
Newsboys co-founder George Perdikis has posted a guest blog on Patheos. The majority of the article focuses on the early years of the Newboys (he left in 1990) & then how he ended up renouncing Christianity long after.

After losing most of the members (Kevin, Dave, and Jason) that took part in the re-imagining of Audio Adrenaline two years ago, AA’s Facebook is teasing a new project. The picture simply teases the band’s name, Spring 2015, and S.O.S. written in morse code. This will be the first new music with vocalist Josh Engler (formerly, Abandon).

This will definitely be a group to keep your eyes on in 2015.…
