Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena is set to host America’s worship leader and songwriter, Chris Tomlin come Friday, April 7th, 2023 at the 7th Annual Good Friday Nashville concert.
Since 2017 when it all began, the concert has never ceased to pass by without breaking a significant record. It became the largest ticketed Christian concert in the history of the venue, smashing attendance records; became a virtual event in 2020 and 2021 and had an exclusive collaboration and partnership with Facebook enabling global distribution and transmission through mass media which enabled the concert spread out it’s tentacles to reach about 30+ nations around the world.
As the name of the concert “GOOD FRIDAY…” implies, one of the concert’s long term aims is for The Goodness of God to be revealed to all men. Chris and his wife Lauren take the lead in ‘spreading this Goodness’ through their non-profit foundation, “For Others” which was founded for the purpose of bridging the gap between children in need and capable providers. The concert will go a long way to benefit the foster care and adoption crisis via the non-profit foundation.
The Concert in the last 7 years of its existence has seen Chris invite a host of household names in the Gospel music industry like; HILLSONG UNITED, We The Kingdom, Lauren Diagle and others. So we can only hold our breaths in dire anticipation knowing this year’s edition is going to be bigger and better being promoted by Awakening Events and presented by K-LOVE, The Fish, Air1 and WAY FM.
The words of the American gospel artiste, worship leader and prolific songwriter concerning the concert, Chris Tomlin;
“There is a passage in Hebrews 13 that I return to when I think about this night, which says, ‘Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.’ That truly is the heart of Good Friday Nashville, for all streams of the church to come together, celebrate what God has done and is continuing to do in our city, and then give back to those most vulnerable in the community.”
