Switchfoot, Leeland, and Salvador Added to Spirit Fest Line-UpAugust 13, 2012 - Texas League (TL) Corpus Christi Hooks
SPIRIT FEST is sponsored by the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.
Switchfoot is an American rock band from San Diego, California. After early successes in the Christian rock scene, Switchfoot first gained mainstream recognition with the inclusion of four of their songs in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember. This recognition led to their major label debut, The Beautiful Letdown, which was released in 2003. It went on to sell over 2.6 million copies. They have since been noted for their energetic live shows, and their seventh studio album Hello Hurricane received a Grammy award in 2011 for Best Rock Gospel Album.
MercyMe is an American Christian rock band founded in Greenville, Texas. The band formed in 1994 and released six independent albums prior to signing with INO Records in 2001. The group first gained mainstream recognition with the crossover single, "I Can Only Imagine" which elevated their debut album, Almost There, to double platinum certification. Since then, the group has released six additional studio albums (four of which have been certified gold) and a greatest hits album, 10. The group has also had 13 consecutive top 5 singles on the Billboard Christian Songs chart, with 7 of them reaching No. 1. MercyMe has won 8 Dove Awards and has had numerous Grammy Award nominations.
Jeremy Camp has sold three million records, charted nineteen No. 1 hits, GRAMMY-nominated and won several major Dove Awards - but Jeremy Camp is tired of himself. Not in any self-deprecating way, but in that positive spiritual sense to which we should all aspire. You can hear him working this out on his sixth recording, We CryOut: The Worship Project.
David Crowder began writing songs to incorporate into the worship times at the church and eventually the church released an independent CD, Pour Over Me, followed by All I Can Say in 1999. These CDs brought the band to a wider audience and invitations to festivals and events followed.
SPIRIT FEST promises to be a jam-packed day the whole family will enjoy. For more information go to: SPIRITFESTCORPUSCHRISTI.COM
