Make It Timeless Inc. is launching new annual Christmas and Easter tours designed to reach a broad spectrum of Christians and their unchurched friends. The William Morris Agency is booking the tours.
The Joy to the World Christmas Celebration tour debuts Nov. 25 and continues through Dec. 19. The Joy to the World Easter Celebration will tour the United States in March and April, 2006.
The Joy to the World Christmas Celebration showcases some of Gospel music’s finest voices, including the Kurt Carr Singers, Martha Munizzi, Rachael Lampa and Bryan Duncan performing together with the Joy to the World Band and Singers. This multicultural event will feature all the artists performing in a thematic presentation, rather than in typical individual artist sets.
Kurt Carr’s musical ingenuity has earned him 10 Stellar Awards. His album Awesome Wonder was certified gold and is closing in on 1 million units sold. Carr’s many hits include “In the Sanctuary,” which has been translated into nine languages.Buy Kurt Carr CD’s on SALE at the CA Store!
Martha Munizzi made history this year when she was the first woman who is not an African American to win a Stellar Award. Munizzi is an amazing vocalist and renowned worship leader. Her album The Best Is Yet To Come entered Billboard’s Top Gospel Album chart at No. 2 and was a top-20 seller for more than 85 weeks. The Joy to the World Christmas Celebration will include Munizzi performing songs from her hit holiday CD, When He Came, and other favorites.Buy Martha Munizzi CD’s on SALE at the CA Store!
Bryan Duncan has had 16 songs at No. 1, and his Christmas Is Jesus is one of the best Christmas albums ever recorded. The Joy to the World Christmas Celebration will include Duncan and others performing songs from his Christmas classic and from his new release, A NehoSoul Christmas.Buy Bryan Duncan CD’s on SALE at the CA Store!

These artists span generational, ethnic, stylistic and denominational boundaries through the power of song and through the contagious faith and hope that unites them. The Joy to the World Christmas Celebration offers audiences the opportunity to join them in singing praise and being reminded of God’s goodness as they share inspiring Christmas songs and Scriptures.
“Christmas and Easter are times when Christians focus on what unites us – who Jesus Christ is and what his birth, death and resurrection mean to us,” says Christopher Redner, CEO of Make It Timeless Inc. “We’re producing events that will appeal to Christians regardless of their age or cultural background, experiences we hope will be truly unifying.”
“More Americans are open to attending a Christian event at Christmas and Easter than at any other time,” Redner says. “Unfortunately, the meaning of the term Christian is changing in our culture. Many people think of Christians as a specific part of the political spectrum instead of as bearers of the good news of great joy for all people that angels proclaimed to shepherds when Christ was born. We hope that the Joy to the World Christmas and Easter Celebrations will be events through which Christians can show their unchurched co-workers, friends and neighbors what being Christian is really about.”
The Joy to the World Christmas Celebration will be collaborating with charitable partners to make Christmas special for children in need – in the United States and in developing countries. “We’re excited about what we’re going to accomplish in the lives of children this Christmas through our charitable and corporate partnerships,” Redner says. “We’re looking forward to formally announcing some of those plans soon.”
The Joy to the World Easter Celebration will be a multicultural celebration of Christ’s life, death and resurrection. Make It Timeless Inc. expects to announce the artist lineup for the Joy to the World Easter Celebration tour on October 10, 2005.
