One of the excitements of worship this week is the Europe Tour that Rebecca St. James will hold for European concert-goers. St. James has given these concerts repetitively to audiences over the world. St. James is going on newly, having already won a Dove Award in her portrayal of “Maggie” a street-girl character in “!Hero the Rock Opera,” controversial rock musical. The music was held April 27 of this Spring and also in the Fall of last year which won St. James much acclaim of being a Gospel music artist.
Noted Vice President of International Marketing & Sales for EMI/CMG parent company of Rebecca’s music Beth McKenzie said:
"Rebecca's commitment to international ministry over the years has been extraordinary. Her long term commitment to Europe, in particular, has made her one of the most popular Christian artists to this region. This will be Rebecca's fifth tour to Europe and as has been the case on previous tours, Rebecca is covering an impressive number of countries including Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, and the U.K. We are very grateful for Rebecca's dedication to these international markets where we know that many lives will be impacted for the Lord through her ministry."
Rebecca St. James will tour 10 different countries across the European continent in only a little over 12 days. This is not unusual for St. James to have such a packed schedule of events in her tour, being a world renown successful Christian artist. Ultimately, the world, that is the goal that Rebecca is aspiring to reach with her music and the message of the Gospel.
Being a Grammy Award winner and Dove Award recipient at the age of 26, and whose albums have reached platinum status, St. James is truly a powerhouse for music ministry all over the world. Born in Australia, St. James was called 'the definite voice in today's contemporary Christian music' since winning the coveted Grammy Award for "Best Christian Rock Album." Rebecca has nine #1 singles and eight album projects that became bestsellers internationally. St. James’s book, "Wait for Me," also reached the #1 rank on the CBA bestseller chart in 2003.
Recently, special mainstream media and public speaking events host St. James – at the Whitehouse as a guest speaker, TV guest appearances on “Night of Joy” special from Disneyworld on the Hallmark Channel, “Fox News Magazine,” "Hannity & Colmes," and "Fox & Friends First," as well as guesting! on Sean Hannity's ABC Radio Network program. Concerts are always a favorite among Rebecca’s fans, having performed at “The Adoration Tour” with the Newsboys and also the “!Hero” Musical.
