An All Out Blast for Africa on GOD TV
July 2, 2009
MEDIA ADVISORY, (christiansunite.com) -- Six explosive bands will be performing LIVE on GOD TV this weekend as the Angel Mission Benefit Concert is broadcast around the globe. This far-reaching initiative aims to raise support for desperately needed clean water wells in Africa - literally saving lives that would otherwise be lost to the global water crisis.
The Angel Mission Benefit Concert forms the climax of a full day's line-up at the 'I Love America' Celebration in Springfield, Missouri. This grand scale event will be televised LIVE on GOD TV from 6pm (ET) on Friday July 3rd, with an edited version broadcast on Independence Day, July 4 at 1pm.
The featured artists include the cross-cultural worship style of Israel Houghton & New Breed ( www.newbreedmusic.com); Leeland, the alternative and progressive rock band from Texas ( www.leelandonline.com); and Press Play, which captivates its growing fan-base with pop/rock, rap and urban sounds ( www.thisispressplay.tv).
Also featured are: The Afters, a Dove Award winning band famous for pounding out beats that change gear from pop to ballad to alternative rock (www.theafters.com); Vicky Beeching an anointed worship leader from the UK who sings words of deep adoration ( www.vickybeeching.com); and Live Out Loud: an alternative rock duo from Zimbabwe who create inspirational rock tones with lyrics that tackle the issues facing Africa.

The public is invited to participate in this event. Those wanting to get involved can attend in person, watch on GOD TV, watch the webcast at www.5dollarwater.com or donate $5 by texting the word WATER to 90999.
"884 million people do not have access to safe water and 1.4 million children die each year because of this. That is 4,000 children per day," said GOD TV / Angel Mission co-founder Rory Alec. "Africa faces a desperate need for clean water, but through Angel Mission's drilling of community water wells as little as $5 can help provide a single person with sufficient water for 20 years. This means everyone can be part of helping revive entire communities in this vast continent."
Net proceeds for the Angel Mission Benefit Concert will go to 25 water projects in the West Pokot region of Kenya. And, with so many top bands performing for such a worthy cause, viewers are in for some unsurpassed musical entertainment.
