I’m excited to announce that the group Finding Favour will be coming to Bethel for a concert on Friday, May 12th, at 7:00 p.m. You may not recognize them by name, but you will definitely recognize their songs that are being played on Life 102.5, K-LOVE and other radio stations around the country.
Finding Favour’s most recent album, Reborn (2015) includes their well-known songs “Refuge”, “Cast My Cares”, and “Say Amen”. Lead singer Blake Neesmith says that the song “Say Amen” is “a reminder of God’s undying faithfulness. He’ll never leave us! He’ll never forsake us! So let us take the good and the bad and remember that God has a purpose and a plan. In the fire, in the storms, or even in the calm we can stand and say Amen!”
Spotify Concert Playlist
When you go to a concert, it’s great if you know the songs that are being sung, and can sing along! So, I created a playlist on Spotify with music from several of the groups that will be part of this concert! Just search for the “Finding Favour Concert at Bethel” playlist on Spotify to get familiar with their music, or just click the link and it will take you right to the playlist.
In addition to Finding Favour, there will be three other groups appearing at the concert – Carrollton, Bonray, and Jamison Strain! The group Carrollton has been getting more airtime on the radio recently with their songs “Tell Me” and “Let Love Win.” Carrollton is a worship band made up of four men, and their latest album Sunlight and Shadows “presents an honest faith and an unwavering hope in God.”
Bonray is a younger group, and actually a family band, made up of four siblings! They have been together as a band since 2014 and enjoy playing and travelling together as a family. “The heart of our band is relationship with Jesus. He is the inspiration of our lives and music and we’re giving it all back to Him.”
Finally, solo artist, worship leader and prolific songwriter Jamison Strain will be appearing at this concert as well. Hailing from Houston, Texas, Jamison released his first full-length album in 2010, and his latest album, Beautiful Beginning in 2016.
