Mark Schultz, Point of Grace to Kick Off First Joint Tour

Award-winning Christian artists Mark Schultz and Point of Grace will be kicking off their 30-city "Come Alive" tour Thursday with their first stop in Decataur, Ill.

The tour, which includes stops in Nashville, Cleveland, and Jacksonville, marks the first time Schultz and the three-woman group will hit the road together and will feature performances of fan favorites from each artist's celebrated career.

"I am really excited to tour with the girls of Point Of Grace," commented Schultz. "They are as genuine off stage as they are on stage. I have been singing their songs ever since I was a youth director in Nashville and seen first hand how their message changes lives. I can't wait for people to see the show!"

Aside from past hits, Schultz will be playing new songs from his recently released album, Come Alive, which hit stores on Aug. 25. Point Of Grace, meanwhile, will be playing songs from their current, critically acclaimed project How You Live.

Both artists are represented by Word Entertainment, which is tied to some of Christian entertainment's top artists, including BarlowGirl, Selah, Natalie Grant, Aaron Shust, Big Daddy Weave and Francesca Battistelli.

Word Entertainment, a Warner/Curb company, is comprised of Word Distribution, Word Music and Word Label Group's Word Records, Fervent Records, Myrrh Records, Canaan Records and Word Music Publishing.
