We regret to announce that The Newsboys will not be able to perform at Break Forth Canada 2017. The band has encountered some immigration issues with Canada’s Border Services Agency, forcing them to cancel their last two concerts in Canada - one in April and most recently, in September. Following the September cancellation, we opened a conversation with the Newsboys management and have now mutually agreed that it would be best to postpone their participation in Break Forth Canada until this matter can be completely resolved.
It is a top priority for both Break Forth Canada and The Newsboys to offer you a great weekend experience. Under these uncertain conditions, neither of us felt we could guarantee that.
We are disappointed, for sure, but delighted to announce that one of the top Christian bands of all time, MercyMe, will now be coming to Break Forth Canada 2017!
Grammy-nominated, Dove Award-winning and with twenty-three #1 singles and over 6-million sales, MercyMe has been a dominant voice in Christian music for more than 20 years. In fact, the band is at the top of many “Best Christian Artists of All Time” lists. With songs like Greater, Here with Me, Word of God Speak, Lord I Lift your Name on High, MercyMe has lifted and encouraged Christ-followers around the world. They’ve also had success on the cross-over pop charts with songs like I Can Only Imagine, Homesick and Here With Me, but band members have consistently maintained that worshipping God and leading others in praise is their life-long calling.
“We’ve been missionaries to the mainstream, but the church is still our home.”
We are delighted to welcome MercyMe to Edmonton and to Break Forth Canada, January 28, 2017 at the Shaw Conference Centre. We hope to share the experience with you.
The Break Forth Canada Team
