Mount Marty Welcomes All the People Tour to Campus

Published Date3\18\2013
Mount Marty College is preparing to welcome the "All the People Tour" to campus for a special night of music and worship in Cimpl Arena on Monday, April 29, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.

Two-time GRAMMY nominated singer, songwriter and worship leader Matt Maher is set to release his most unique and revealing project yet with the announcement of his fourth album titled, "All the People Said Amen", available April 23, 2013. Maher's newest project fuses the popularity of his vibrant live show with several new studio cuts, offering fans an assortment of writing and performance styles.

"This project", offers Maher, "is a real collage of who I am musically. You'll hear intimate worship songs, anthemic praise tunes often sung and shouted aloud together in unison, and celebratory songs that inspire the whole church. I wanted to deliver something for everyone, and this set captures what my music and ministry have been, where it is, and where it's headed.”

Unity and community define Maher’s music and ministry, represented by the menagerie of songs on "All The People Said Amen", and also shown in the album's cover art. For it, Maher created a visual scrapbook made up of special moments, placed purposefully, including old tour posters, handwritten lyrics from songwriting sessions live and candid shots with fans, even his own wedding photos. Every item has a story behind it and is a significant part of Maher's songwriting over the last 7 years.

Also joining Matt on the tour will be three-time Dove Award-winner Chris August and the exciting new band, Bellarive. This past summer, August released his sophomore album, "The Upside of Down".

Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 22nd at www.itickets.com. Ticket prices are $16 if purchased in advance, $18 at the door, $12 for groups of 10 or more. For more information contact events@mtmc.edu.
