But if I lose this life

I know I'll find it in You

So won't You take my life

'Cause I surrender to You

I'm running back to the Truth

Your Word is clear

I've got to believe it

Yep, it’s Tait. Michael Tait, critically acclaimed and respected vocalist in the CCM genre, recently has been invited to tour Europe with legendary guitarist, Carlos Santana.

“It is a great honor for me to accept a vocalist position with music legend Carlos Santana,” says Michael Tait. “To even be asked to join with one of the greatest artists in the history of rock and roll is humbling to say the least. I did not pursue this and was blown away when he called. While this is a great opportunity, let there be no question – I remain 100% committed to my own band, TAIT. One of the most attractive components of this is that I will be able to continue to record and perform with my band. Carlos has been so gracious; he has even asked me to perform two TAIT songs in the live show.”

Peter York, President, EMI CMG Label Group, says, "We are thrilled that Michael will have this incredible opportunity to share his gifts on global level. He is a valued artist in the EMI family and we look forward to an exciting future together. We continue to see great momentum with his current album Lose This Life and are pleased to support this exciting new opportunity with Santana.”

Michael will make his debut with Santana when the band begins its upcoming European tour on July 2 in France.

The tour will also make stops in Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Croatia, Hungary and the Czech Republic.
