Tenth Avenue North No. 1 on Christian Charts!
Written by Christi Given | November 19, 2011
Tenth Avenue North is a rising Christian band. Its first album, “Over and Underneath,” was released in 2008. The band won the Best New Artist GMA Dove Award in 2009 and its second album, “The Light Meets the Dark,” was released in May 2011.
Listen to “By Your Side,” one of my favorite songs. It is SO powerful. The band won the GMA Song of the Year for it in 2009.
EVERY song is good on the album. Most artists have a few songs per album that are good; this band hits every song home with moving lyrics! The band’s second album is JUST as amazing.
Watch the “Strong Enough to Save” music video journal. What is so unique and cool about the band is that the members speak to their fans in their videos.
Mike Donehy, the lead singer of Tenth Avenue North, explains the concept of the album and the message of “You are More,” which is a powerful and redemptive song. In essence, the message is that Jesus paid the price for your sins–its not about what you have done, but what has been done for you. You are more than your choices!
The band was nominated for Group of the Year in 2011. “Hold my Heart” also was nominated for Song of the Year. This year Tenth Avenue North also reached #1 on The National Audience And AC Monitored Charts.
PI girls, I hope you are blessed by Tenth Avenue North’s message and music!
