Speakers & Artists
In Concert: Lecrae
Lecrae is quickly developing into one of the biggest music stories of the year and his Cinderella rise has been noted everywhere from Rolling Stone to Billboard Magazine. His performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, perfectly timed with his album's release, had fans buzzing as he performed multiple hit records from Anomaly. He's performed at the BET Experience, co-hosted The Dove Awards, co- headlined the highest ticketed tour in the country (Winter Jam) and received a nomination for Best Impact Track at this year's BET Hip Hop Awards. Remaining true to his beliefs, Lecrae is an artist that redefines mainstream popular culture. Thematically, one can find inspiration, faith and honesty in his music. But it's more than that and yet it is quite transparent. In a sea of indulgent music, he's swimming against the tide embracing all the things that make him the man he is, including his faith.
Worship: Hunter Smith Band
Speaker: Brent Crowe
Brent Crowe is currently serving as Vice President with Student Leadership University in Orlando, Florida. SLU has trained over 82,000 students to commit themselves to excellence.
