Nashville, Tenn. — Chris Tomlin’s Worship Night In America events are returning this summer, once again uniting people across the country for a time to worship and pray for the nation, following last year’s sold-out inaugural events.
“I’m so humbled, honored and excited that this summer Worship Night in America is coming to even more cities,” Tomlin said. “Last year, we saw God move in incredible ways each and every night. The presence of God was so evident as the country came together to worship and pray as one.”
Hitting arenas in Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Miami and New York, this year’s events will feature new and returning speakers and artists, including Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, Matt Redman, Matt Maher, Phil Wickham, Kim Walker-Smith, Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Steven Curtis Chapman, Tasha Cobbs and DJ Promote.
Last year, thousands gathered to proclaim the name of Jesus and lift up the country in prayer, selling out NYC’s Madison Square Garden, Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater and Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena.
Tickets for Worship Night In America 2016 are on sale now.
Sunday night, Tomlin closed out the 2016 K-LOVE Fan Awards with a performance of his No. 1 single “Good Good Father,” which was honored as Song of the Year. Artists such as Lauren Daigle, for KING & COUNTRY, Passion, Hillsong UNITED and more joined him on stage as the entire audience sang along.
