The partnership with Food for the Hungry allowed attendees to sponsor over 15,000 children, provided food, improved education, clean water, and medical aid.
“It’s an amazing partnership that we have with K-LOVE/Air1, Awakening Events and Food for the Hungry, it takes us where I think our music should be—in the heart of our cities in the biggest arenas in town,” explains TobyMac. “I always get excited when it’s time to create the ‘HITS DEEP Tour’ line-up. I love the idea of putting together artists that are just starting their journey with veterans, electronic artists with organic artistry and colors of skin that demonstrate God’s diverse kingdom. We come together backstage – which leads us to a beautiful night on stage. A night deep in hits, that aims to hit you deep. A night where everybody is invited to the party!”
TobyMac is known for his dynamic live shows, and the Hits Deep Live CD/DVD (releasing November 18, 2016) will showcase the full live album and concert video of sixteen songs recorded on the Hits Deep tour. This will mark TobyMac’s first live album in eight years.
“This partnership is so special and unique between TobyMac, Dan Fife at Awakening Events and our team at K-LOVE Radio – it’s a privilege to be a part of the 2017 ‘HITS DEEP Tour,’” shares David Pierce, Chief Creative Officer of K–LOVE Radio. “K-LOVE is all about making a positive impact in peoples lives, and helping them to grow closer to Jesus. The heart of this tour is exactly that, to impact lives and make room for God to work! 2016 ‘HITS DEEP Tour’ was amazing to see arena after arena sold out! It was awesome and we’re excited and can’t wait for the 2017 ‘HITS DEEP Tour’ to begin!”
