Three superstars of the contemporary Christian music world will come to West Virginia University March 8 as part of the national “3-in-1 Tour.”
Mandisa, Brandon Heath and Laura Story will perform in the Mountainlair Ballrooms on Friday, March 8. Showtime is set for 7:30 pm. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, Jan. 31 at 10 a.m at the Mountainlair and Creative Arts Center box offices, online at ticketmaster.com, or by calling 304-293-SHOW and 800-745-3000.
Mandisa Hundley began her career introducing herself as “just Mandisa” on the fifth series of “American Idol.” Mandisa went on to perform on “Live with Regis and Kelly” and to join Gladys Knight at the Apollo Theater for the benefit concert “Back to Harlem.” Since then, this bubbly singer has released four full-length studio albums and a Christmas EP, three of which are Grammy-nominated. Mandisa’s first full-length album debuted at No.1 on the Top Christian Albums charts, the first time a new female artist has debuted at No. 1 in the charts. With more than 635,000 albums sold, Mandisa’s music and message continues to connect with fans. Her latest single, “Good Morning,” features Toby Mac and is currently storming the charts.
Brandon Heath has become one of Christian music’s most beloved and respected artists and songwriters. He has been nominated four times for the prestigious Dove Awards, winning in the “New Artist of the Year” category of 2008. Heath’s second album “Give Me Your Eyes” as well as “Leaving Eden” have been Grammy-nominated for “Best Pop/Contemporary Gospel Album” and “Best Contemporary Christian Album,” respectively. His award-winning songs and signature vocals reflect a soaring radio career that includes four No. 1 hits: “I’m Not Who I Was,” “Wait and See,” the 2009 GMA Dove Award-winning Song of the Year, “Give Me Your Eyes” and the eight-week chart topper, “Your Love.”
Laura Story’s expressive contemporary Christian music has put her on the map as one of the genre’s mainstays. Beginning with a college band, Story moved onto solo albums and quickly caught audiences’ ears. Her first album featured the title track “Indescribable,” which was covered by Chris Tomlin and reached No.2 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs. Laura Story is one of the few female Christian artists to ever reach the top of the singles chart with her song “Blessings.” Story earned four Dove nominations in 2009 for “Great God Who Saves,” at which she took home her first award for “Inspirational Album of the Year.” In 2011, she also nabbed another nomination for “Female Vocalist of the Year.”
