Avenue North (Reunion
Records) is proud to announce its new partnership with child sponsorship
organization, Compassion International. Mike Donehey, lead vocalist and
songwriter for Tenth Avenue North, stated, “One of the things we love most
about Compassion is that it’s not about Compassion. If you go to one of their
sites you won’t see a Compassion banner, but instead you’ll see the church in
that area giving to their community exactly what it needs. The empowering of
the local church to be the hands and feet of Jesus is what we want to be about,
and its what we feel Compassion does best.” Wess Stafford, President,
Compassion International commented, “I’m thrilled that Tenth Avenue North will
be joining Compassion’s effort to release children from the evil of poverty
throughout the world in Jesus name. I’m confident that the Lord will use the
message and example of Tenth Avenue North in a mighty way to draw caring
sponsors into the lives of children who so desperately need to hear His message
of love and hope.” For more information on Tenth Avenue North, please visit www.tenthavenuenorth.com.

For the first time, live messages from the founder of the Passion movement are available in retail outlets. Louie Giglio, Visionary Architect and Director of Passion Conferences/sixstepsrecords, shares three of his most compelling talks in The Passion Talk Series (Sparrow/sixstepsrecords), which arrive in retail stores April 29, 2008. The three sought-after DVDs, entitled Indescribable, How Great is Our God, and Hope—When Life Hurts Most, are each accompanied by a corresponding music CD.
Each Passion Talk Series DVD is a live video talk containing a full-length message from Giglio, as well as a bonus music CD. Each DVD combo will retail for $14.99 and feature five songs from Passion/sixsteprecords artists, which complement the accompanying DVD talk.
"The amazing thing about this series, is that without any real promotion more than 100,000 copies have already been sold directly through Passion's website," says Peter York, EMI CMG Label Group president. "We believe making these talks available through wider retail distribution will finally allow us to begin meeting the growing demand for this message."
More than 500,000 students have attended a Passion event during the past decade, and more than 1.6 million copies of live Passion event albums have been sold. Passion and Louie Giglio have been featured in many media outlets including The New York Times and the cover of Christianity Today.

ChristianMusicToday.com says PASSION: EVERYTHING GLORIOUS, recorded live at the recent Passion 06 worship gathering, "could well be the best in the series to date."
PASSION: EVERYTHING GLORIOUS features exclusive new in-concert songs from Chris Tomlin ("Glorious," "Party"), David Crowder*Band (title track), and Matt Redman ("You Never Let Go") plus inspiring performances by Charlie Hall, Christy Nockels, and Kristian Stanfill.
The online review continues: "While it seemed like an impossible task for this disc to top last year's fantastically crafted HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD, this new disc outshines its predecessor with well-written, heartfelt songs that are produced with excellence (by Watermark's Nathan Nockels) and performed with panache (and sheer enthusiasm) that should result from worshipping God . . . It's this attention to detail that really sets this disc apart from the usual worship fare . . . there's still something fresh, exciting and passionate to be contributed to the modern worship arena."
