Manassas, VA – World-acclaimed recording artist Nathan Tasker will perform during the International Luncheon at NRB 2011 in Nashville, TN, on Monday, February 28th.
“Nathan is a gifted and energetic guy with a heart for God. I can’t wait to hear him,” commented Dr. Frank Wright, NRB President & CEO.
As Australia’s preeminent male Christian recording artist, with three best-selling albums, a string of #1 singles and numerous accolades to his credit, Tasker was on top of the world Down Under. But when that undeniable still small voice began stirring in his soul, he knew it would ultimately mean leaving home.
For some, leaving their family and home at the pinnacle of success would have been unthinkable, but for Tasker, it was simply an act of obedience. “At the end of the day we’re just trying to be faithful to the call God has placed on my life, and often times that leads you out of comfort to the unknown, and that’s what moving to America was for us,” Nathan says. “I look at what we create now, the music, the way we share our lives—whether on stage or off—and I see that God is faithful through it all.”
He was named 2006 "Artist of the Year" and awarded "Song of The Year" by the Australian Christian Music Charts. He has written, recorded and produced several gospel albums. Nathan made his first public performance in 1993, and has since been involved in Christian Ministry through writing, singing and speaking. His work is wide reaching, and incorporates visits to schools, churches, conventions, and prisons.
Nathan’s latest album, Home, navigates the waters of vulnerability, encapsulating a series of life-changing events for Nathan and his family.
