Manassas, VA– GLAD will perform at the Awards Dinner on Tuesday, February 25, during the NRB 2014 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.
“The Awards Dinner is a special time for our association during which we recognize outstanding ministries, programs, and producers,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “As our awards program seeks to inspire and encourage excellence, I look forward to seeing how GLAD will also inspire and encourage Convention participants through their music.”
Impeccably arranged vocals; layered harmonies; instrumental and vocal versatility; and strong ties to the local church - these are the hallmarks of GLAD. The band began on the campus of West Chester State University near Philadelphia, PA, in the early 1970s. Formed as a progressive Christian rock band with classical/jazz leanings and an emphasis on complex vocals, GLAD has always borrowed from a wide range of musical genres.
Today, GLAD continues to tour at the rate of about 50 concerts per year. The group's concert ministry has two primary thrusts: (1) to effectively communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ while emphasizing themes such as God's sovereignty and delighting in God, and (2) sharing with audiences about the child development work of Compassion International.
