Praise music doesn't get much better than the multi-Dove award winning group Selah. Their music creates an intimate and joyous place to meditate on and dwell with the Lord. Selah will be coming to Baltimore to spread the good news with music that is all about Jesus. They will bless attendees with a free—yes "free" was the word—pop up concert on Thursday, August 21st at 7pm. The concert is being put on by Greater Grace World Outreah and 95.1 Shine-FM will be there to collect back-to-school supplies for the Boys and Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore. If you would like to make a back-to-school product donation, see the following back-to-school list for the needed items.
If you are not too familiar with Selah, their music is definitely worth discovering. Dig deep and find some of their much lauded early releases to hear how the Lord really blesses them to draw your attention to Him. Their discography includes albums like Be Still My Soul (1999a0 and Press On (2001), which both earned Dove awards.
Selah has been around since 1997. The original members were brother and sister Todd Smith, Nicol Smith and family friend Alan Hall. The rich vocal styling of Nicol Smith, who after getting married became Nicol Sponberg, was something extremely special. After her departure in 2004, the original band members remained and produced another Dove-winning album, Bless the Broken Road: The Duets Album, eventually bringing on Amy Perry as the female vocalist for the trio. The lovely part about Perry filling the third vocalist spot was the fact that her voice was not the only thing the band members were interested in—they also looked at her Godliness as well. Then again, shouldn't that always be a prerequisite for a worship band?
Doors open at Greater Grace World Outreach at 6pm, so you should come early to reserve a seat. The church is located at 6025 Moravia Park Road in Baltimore City.
