View Exclusive Clips From The Show In The Vault At

Nashville, Tenn – 3 October 2011 – A new family-friendly reality show based on Inpop Records’ artist Newsboys, “Mari White Presents Newsboys,” debuts tonight and will air on multiple networks. Following the lives of each of the band members – Michael Tait (vocals), Duncan Phillips (drums), Jody Davis (guitars), and Jeff Frankenstein (keys), – the ten-part series gives viewers an exciting and never-before-seen inside look to this GRAMMY-nominated and Dove award-winning band in both their professional and personal lives. Exclusive clips of the show can be viewed In THE VAULT, only on Newsboys’ official Facebook page,

“Mari White Presents Newsboys” provides a front-seat view of the everyday life of being Newsboys, from the studio, as the band puts the finishing touches on a new album, to the stage as the ‘Boys’ do what they do best–perform live in front of thousands of fans.

“Over the years, our fans have seen small glimpses of our offstage moments, but now, we are so excited to share hours of exclusive, never before seen footage,” shares Jeff Frankenstein. “Our fans will get a chance to hear more about our hearts, our families, and our ministry.”

The show’s producer and host, Mari White, chose the Newsboys over other Christian acts because of an experience she had at one of their concerts last year in New York City. White admits when she arrived to the show she saw how diverse the audience was, how people were singing along with them, and most importantly, how the band had no shame in sharing their faith. It was then that she realized she needed to share their inspiration.

With 27 No. 1 hits and seven million records sold over the last two decades, Newsboys have appealed to multiple generations of Christian music lovers. However, this is a show that goes far beyond the music to show how faith shapes the lives of these major performers within Christian music, sure to be compelling viewing to the wider faith-based audience that reaches well beyond the Newsboys’ millions of fans.

This rock-driven worship album finds front man Michael Tait and his band mates who’ve played together for nearly two decades – Jeff Frankenstein, Duncan Phillips, and Jody Davis – with some of today’s most widely church-embraced modern worship anthems as well as several original and never-before-released worship songs written by some of today’s biggest worship songwriters.
This GRAMMY®-nominated and Dove Award-winning band has sold over 7 million units, garnered five RIAA certified Gold albums and 27 #1 hits.

Its self-titled single topped the charts for 8 weeks, gaining close to eight million impressions to date.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
