Christian Life

Tenth Avenue North No. 1 on Christian Charts!

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!

    Tenth Avenue North is amazing! I’ve been lucky enough to get to see them in concert twice in the last year. We even got to hang out with them and just talk after one of the concerts! The guys are really nice, and you can tell that they don’t think that they’re better than you just cause they’re famous 😀 if you ever have the chance to go see them, do!!!!

My favorite song by them (and my favorite song out of all the songs in the world) is You Are More. I hope I get a chance to see another of their concerts S-O-O-N. It’s no surprise how popular they are. Oh, and make sure to check out there YouTube channel if you haven’t. The video journals are amazing and inspiring, and the other videos are HILARIOUS!!!

    i LOVE tenth avenue north! they came to concert in my town in september and they where AMAZING!!!

  31. Posted by on November 19, 2011 at 15:55

    I got to see them live at a festival this summer and they are so good! They had a worship time where everyone in the crowd had their hands in the air and was worshiping God. It was incredible. Mike also gave an inspiring speech during the concert. You can find the video on YouTube, just search for Sonshine 2011 Tenth Avenue North.It’s the first one that comes up. Tenth Avenue North has become one of my favorite bands to listen to when I need to know that God loves me. Their songs are amazing. I cried the first time I heard You Are More. I really cannot say how much I love them.

    I absolutely LOVE them.
    I performed “By Your Side” for my church one Sunday and many people asked me who the artist was…they’ve never heard of Tenth Avenue North before. I was really stunned! I introduced a few of my friends to the band, and they love them too! I’m glad that they’re using their talents to honor God and minister to people…and us teenagers 😀
    Woo!! Tenth Avenue North!! 🙂
