Grammy-winner TobyMac rocked the stage on Sunday with fellow Christian music's biggest stars Mandisa, Matthew West, Matt Maher, Brandon Heath, and Capital Kings in San Jose.
The March 2nd concert concluded TobyMac's "Hits Deep Tour" that began in mid-Feb. when the entourage performed in Seattle, Wash., Portland, Oregon, and San Jose, California.
While TobyMac led the show, promoting his latest album "Eye on It," his songs described his ultimate desire to let God "steal his show." Throughout the concert, TobyMac and his band shared the stage with other Christian music fan's beloved artists. Together, these talented artists led the crowd in worship through the genre of rock, rap, pop, reggae, and soul.
Wearing a red head band, Mandisa sang and danced to her songs "Overcomer," which won the 2014 Grammy Awards for Best Christian Contemporary Music, and "Good Morning."
Matthew West then jumped in and introduced himself through the song "Hello My Name Is" to the joy of those gathered at the San Jose State University Events Center. He explained that some time ago he had a realization that every person has a unique story that God wants to use, and many of his recent songs were inspired by stories of his fans. He encouraged the audience to remember that they are "child of the one true King" and that they've been saved, set freed from bondage of sin.
Meanwhile, TobyMac took the stage after intermission and performed "Speak Life," "Forgiveness," "In the Light," "Lose My Soul." He and his band members ran to the back of the auditorium and performed on a makeshift stage, where TobyMac sang to his band members' beatboxing and guitar playing. Moreover, Matt Maher appeared in the middle of "In the Light" and sang together.
Throughout the concert, the artists encouraged the audience through their testimonies and words of encouragements.
This year, TobyMac, the father of five children, Mandisa, Matt Maher, and Matthew West are among the artists up for top honors at the 2014 K-Love Fan Awards, the second annual fan-voted awards show. Starting May 1, fans can vote for their favorite in eight categories at www.klove.com.
