NEW ARTIST JULIE ELIAS CRISS-CROSSES U.S. PERFORMING AT TOP CHRISTIAN MUSIC FESTIVALS, CAPS SUMMER WITH NIGHT OF JOY CONCERTS
Singer/Songwriter Shares Music From Upcoming CD, A Wild Rose
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 6, 2012) - New artist Julie Elias has wrapped up a summer of criss-crossing the United States as she performed at many of the top Christian music festivals across the nation, where she debuted songs from her upcoming CD, A Wild Rose. The singer/songwriter caps her busy season with concerts scheduled Friday and Saturday at the popular Night of Joy event held annually at Disney World's Magic Kingdom Park in Orlando.
"To return to Night of Joy for the second year in a row is a huge blessing especially when I think of how much has happened in these past 12 months," Elias says. "Last year's Night of Joy performance was my first time sharing some of my new songs with an audience. Now, one year later, I have had a solo Christmas tour, finished an album of original songs, performed at the festivals this summer. All of it is beyond what I could have fathomed and is something only God could orchestrate. I am so encouraged by and grateful for the last 12 months and thrilled to be at Night of Joy again!"
Throughout the summer, Elias has been featured alongside Christian music's top artists, including Newsboys, TobyMac, Switchfoot, Tenth Avenue North, Matthew West, Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp and Britt Nicole, while performing at Spirit West Coast, AtlantaFest, Ichthus, Creation NE, Cornerstone, Lifest, Sonshine and Creation NW.
The singer/songwriter is scheduled to perform at the Night of Joy's Talent Spotlight Stage Friday and Saturday nights with her band. The 2012 mainstage acts include MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, Third Day and Kutless.
