Updated: May 4
One month to go to summer and we're winding down with these events we think are a must-attend before we ease into the heat of summer '23. Let's go!
It's Time Tour - Natalie Grant, Naomi Raine, Tasha Cobbs, TAYA - United States
This Spring, the powerhouse women of Gospel and Christian music join together for 'It’s Time Tour 2023.' Although the tour started last month, at James L. Knight Center in Miami, FL, there are quite a number of dates available for May and even June. You can only imagine what happens when Grammy-winning artists Naomi Raine and Tasha Cobbs Leonard, 9x Grammy-nominee Natalie Grant, and globally renowned vocalist TAYA come together for an event. It's a must-see!
It’s Time will visit 21 cities across the U.S. including Atlanta, New York and Houston. Fans can expect to see solo performances from each artist. The co-headliners will also share the stage for a few songs each night.
“It’s Time is an expression of worship in beauty and strength with some of the purest female worship leaders of our time,” says Naomi Raine. “I’m humbled to be a part of this movement that hopefully continues to fuel this generation toward extravagant worship. Women are pillars in their communities and families and my prayer is that this would empower women to go after God with everything they have. My life was changed in an environment much like the one we will be in every night of the tour. Hoping people come out to be equipped and inspired.”

Church Clothes Tour - Lecrae - United States
Lecrae is heading on the road for "The Final Church Clothes Tour!" The tour kicked off on March 17th in Orlando, FL, and is to cover 26 cities across The South, Midwest, and East Coast ending this month, May 14th in Massachusetts.
The tour branded "The Final Church Clothes Tour" pays homage to and closes out his Church Clothes mixtape series. On November 4, 2022, he released Church Clothes 4, the last mixtape in the series, and filmed two music videos: "Spread The Opps," and "Still In America." The 13-song album featured appearances from Andy Mineo, WHATUPRG, nobigdyl, Jon Keith, A.I. The Anomaly, and Jordan L'Oreal.
Church Clothes was initiated in 2012 by the Stellar Award-winning artist, with the first installment hosted by Don Cannon. The visual for the title track featured appearances from Kendrick Lamar and DJ Premier. The mixtape itself featured No Malice of The Clipse, and production from 9th Wonder, Bio 1-Da, S1, and Street Symphony.
“I’m a child of hip-hop. I grew up with rap music, and God transitioned and transformed me when I became a believer! After that, people felt I didn’t belong in hip-hop anymore,” continued Lecrae.
“The Church Clothes mixtape series helped them understand there’s a place for artists like me. If Wu-Tang can spit the 5 percent gems, Kendrick can talk Hebrew Israelites, and Ice Cube and Lupe can declare their Islamic faith, why is there no space for Christian hip-hop artists? So, the first Church Clothes was about me getting mine off and spitting what’s in my heart.”
He shares on his social media, "We need you there. We need you to bring someone who needs to encounter Jesus in an authentic way."
Marizu Acoustic Sessions - May 21st - Lagos Nigeria
In the vibrant city of Lagos, Nigeria, Marizu will be having his first-ever live show. To say we're excited will be an understatement. The Acoustic Sessions are a showcase of songs about God's unending love and a celebration of the salvation we have in Christ. Looks like we're not the only excited ones as within 2 days of him sharing the news, tickets were sold out!
“I am an instrument in God's hands and can't thank Him enough for how far He has brought me and where He is taking me. It gives me great joy when people (young people especially) come to know and embrace the reality of who Christ has made us to be. Through my music, it is a personal desire of mine for more people to come to this profound revelation of who they are in Christ.” Marizu says
You didn't hear it from us but he may be releasing more tickets so turn on post notifications and stay tuned.
