Rock and Worship Roadshow 2010 poster

MercyMe, David Crowder Band, Family Force 5, Francesca Battistelli, Fee, Remedy Drive and Sidewalk Prophets will all be part of the 2nd annual Rock & Worship Roadshow starting in March. According to organizers:

Admission prices will again be $10 at-the-door, as the tour aims to be an event for fans of all ages, especially families. In addition to bringing a night of exciting performances, the tour is also dedicated to a much greater purpose: helping children with juvenile diabetes via “Imagine A Cure”, a non profit organization geared to raise awareness and to support research that will lead to a cure along with Compassion International, a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. For more information on “Imagine A Cure,” go to: http://www.imagineacureonline.com/. For more information on Compassion International go to http://www.compassion.com
