Michael W Smith

Thursday, August 28, 7:30 p.m.

Heartland Events Center

$6 Convenience Fee plus gate admission.

Tickets will be available on Monday, August 4, at 8:00 a.m. at the Heartland Events Center Box Office and Etix.com.

This multi GRAMMY Award winner has sold more than 15 million albums, has had 28 Number 1 hits, and 40 Dove Awards making him one of the nation’s favorite mainstream Christian artists. With such hits as “You Won’t Let Go”, “Breathe”, “Friends” and “Awesome God”, he has achieved worldwide acclaim as a writer, musician, singer and overall performer.”

 

More than any other mainstream Christian artist, Michael has certainly broadened his own genre’s listening ear. Between 1999’s compelling This Is Your Time record and 2001’s much needed Worship set (released on September 11), he made the instrumental effort, Freedom, which has sold more than 500,000 copies. It’s also the project many fans want more of and ask about most often: When are you going to make another one?

 

The answer is now. Glory, Smith’s twenty-third career album, feeds the enthusiasm its predecessor stirred and soundly exceeds expectations. A sweeping cinematic statement rich in melodies, emotional range, and musical twists, it was born at a piano in Tennessee then completed with a 71-piece symphony orchestra in England at AIR Studios, where soundtracks for Pirates of the Caribbean and The Chronicles of Narnia were also done.
