Josh Wilson Embraces the True Spirit of the Holidays with Christmas Single “Jesus Is Alive”

Sparrow Records’ Artist Creates a
“Unique Christmas Experience” on Christmas Tour
Set to Launch November 27

On November 18, Sparrow Records’ artist Josh Wilson will embrace the true spirit of Christmas as he releases “Jesus Is Alive,” available on iTunes ®.
Wilson will be performing  “Jesus Is Alive” on his Christmas tour this winter titled “Josh Wilson Presents Noel: A Unique Christmas Experience.” This 18-city tour will be unlike any he has done before, as he will showcase his diverse musical talents by operating over 20 different instruments throughout the evening. Inspired by the recording process of See You, where Wilson played over 15 various instruments one at a time, he will use computers and pedals to record all of the sounds from each tool in front of the audience. This allows every sound to be recorded as the night goes on. The end result is an extraordinary and magical holiday experience for the whole family.  Watch and listen to Wilson as he demonstrates what fans can witness live this Christmas here. For a full list of tour dates, see below.
“This is one of my favorite tours I’ve ever been on,” explains Wilson. “It’s fun and unique because we’re essentially bringing a recording studio to the stage.
Throughout the night, we’ll use over 20 instruments to record Christmas carols in front of the audience.  I’m so excited to share these songs that remind us, as C.S. Lewis said, ‘The Son of God became a man to enable men to become sons of God.’”
While “Jesus Is Alive” will impact radio this holiday season, Wilson’s current single “Fall Apart” is continuing to climb the radio charts, presently at No. 12 at AC Indicator, No. 16 on the National Audience Chart and No. 18 on AC monitored.
