Christian dance/rock/Pop group Family Force 5 have just announced their 5th Annual "Family Force 5's Christmas Pageant" tour that will partner with CURE International.
This will be the first tour since the line-up change and will include special guests Flame, We As Human, and V Rose as they travel through 11 cities from Dec. 2-December 15.
FF5 is working with CURE in order to help sick children receive healing during the Christmas season. CURE spreads the Gospel in 29 countries, and provides surgical healing for kids with curable physical disabilities.
Fans who choose to participate with the CURE organization will have an opportunity to sponsor a child. Their funds will go to a specific child in one of their hospitals to receive the surgery he or she needs in order to be healed. The band will be helping this child.
FF5 began this tour in 2009 after they released their album, The Christmas Pageant. The tour promises an evening of classic holiday tunes in their dance-rock style as well as possible "snowstorms, over-sized presents, outrageous costumes and more fun-filled surprises with the goal of making a difference in a child's life," the press release said.
