NewReleaseTuesday.com Launches Web Series: “Mari White Presents The Newsboys”
The show, which originally aired on TV and follows the band during the making of their award-winning Born Again album and tour in 2011, is debuting online as a Web-series beginning April 3, 2013. All 20 episodes will be available for the first time to stream for free at http://nrt.cc/newsboysshow.
Mari White has a long history of experience in the entertainment industry. She originally decided to take on the Newsboys project after having witnessed a live concert with the band in New York City. The enthusiasm of the audience and their wide-open faith compelled her to accept the challenge of launching the series on television. Thus, the first series of “Mari White Presents the Newsboys”—an MTV style Christian reality show for teens and young adults—was independently financed, produced and broadcast on over 12 major networks nationally as well as worldwide, reaching 80+ million viewers. In addition, the show has been honored with multiple awards.
The Newsboys consist of members Michael Tait, Jody Davis, Jeff Frankenstein and Duncan Phillips. Their message of Christ’s love and sacrifice is delivered in every concert, and the story resonates in the hearts of those that follow the band’s progress. The show features not only their performances, but takes viewers behind the scenes to see what life is really like as member of the Newsboys.
“Getting to know Mari White and her heart for bringing quality Christian entertainment to audiences has been a true blessing,” says Kevin McNeese, Founder of NewReleaseTuesday.com. “We’ve enjoyed a successful relationship for years with the Newsboys. They truly are one of the hardest working bands out there and this show captures their life so well. I’ve been able to watch this series for the first time online and it’s an unprecedented look inside one of Christian music’s biggest bands. We’re honored to be the exclusive online home for viewers to discover a side of the Newsboys they’ve never seen before.”
This is the latest in a series of recent partnerships with Newsboys for NewReleaseTuesday.com following the media sponsorship of their fall 2012 tour and recent launch of the first NRT-shirt that’s free with the purchase of new shirt designs from Newsboys’ drummer, Duncan Phillips (http://nrt.cc/NRTshirt).
