Grammy-nominated and GMA Dove Award-winning artist Jeremy Camp will offer a free concert broadcast exclusively on Facebook. The concert is part of the May 9 launch of FANetwork’s faith-based community, Global Sounds.
Camp will bring 90 minutes of songs and the stories behind them live from his Nashville, Tenn., home. Facebook users will be able to interact with him directly through the “Jeremy Camp Live” Facebook app.
Excited to be the first artist featured through FANetwork’s Global Sounds, Camp said: “I love that through Facebook and social media we can now broadcast around the world and allow people who may not typically get to come to a show experience all the stories behind the songs.”
FANetwork has partnered with Berean Christian Stores, American Bible Society, HearItFirst, New Release Tuesday, Surrender Magazine and Urban Gospel Alliance to present the event. Owners Joseph and Deanna Gimelli said Berean Christian Stores is “honored” to take part in the event. “When one worships God from the heart, the body of Christ becomes unified,” they said.
Along with the concert, fans can support Camp’s nonprofit Speaking Louder Ministries through a $5 pledge for individuals or $20 for youth groups and receive a 60-day, all-access pass to content from Camp, accessed through the Facebook app.
“Global Sounds is more than a one-time concert, it is a way to gather the body of believers and give Christian artists an opportunity to express themselves and engage with fans like never before,” said Charlie Stuart Gay, president of FANetwork. “Camp’s heart is evident in his songs, but Global Sounds offers a chance for him to share the inspiration and meaning behind them, as well as his music’s impact for the Lord around the world.”
Available through the Web as well as on mobile phones and iPads, Global Sounds will feature access to a new artist each month.
In addition, Global Sounds is hosting the “Express Yourself: Upload. Share. Connect.” contest through its Facebook page, providing 25 Camp fans the opportunity to receive a shout-out on the live broadcast and win a VIP fan pack. Global Sounds is inviting youth groups to enter for the chance to win a personal Skype session with Camp by sharing a video. Details are available at FANetwork.
The May 9 concert will air live at 9 p.m. EDT/6 p.m. PDT on multiple Facebook pages. For individuals who pledge, the broadcast will be accessible through video-on-demand with special bonus content.
