Nashville, TN &ndashThree of the faith-based market&rsquos leading companies have joined together to announce the IXIST Tour: urban music label Xist Music, the formidable artist &amp booking agency Elite Talent Agency, and top Christian media &amp events group, FrontGate Media. The tour comes as Christian hip-hop and urban music is exploding, evidenced most recently by last week&rsquos Billboard charts milestone: TobyMac&rsquos &quotEye On It&quot debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

&nbsp

IXIST is more than a concert tour.&nbsp It is a ministry campaign dedicated to helping people share their testimony.&nbsp The IXIST team believes that God has blessed us all with a purpose, and that purpose has taken us all on a journey of different paths, struggles and victories.&nbsp Throughout all our life experiences we have made many choices, some good and some bad, but as children of the Most High, we have all come to common ground, that is, we are all here because of His grace. &nbsp

&nbsp

The IXIST tour will allow concert attendees to tell their story at each venue.&nbsp Each night, one local market testimonial will be chosen and posted from an ongoing international YouTube campaign, created to inspire others to share their story and consider the work that God is doing through their lives.

Coming this Winter 2013, the IXIST TOUR will kick off in late February, routing across the U.S. through March and then on to Africa, where the tour will travel to six countries. The tour will include IXIST Media Sessions featuring on-site interviews at each location afternoon IXIST In-Stores in select cities, and of course the IXIST Concert each night.&nbsp

&nbsp

This year&rsquos IXIST TOUR features the Xist Music roster of leading Urban Christian artists &amp their ministries, anchored by the Billboard and SoundScan best-selling artists The Ambassador and Sean Simmonds. &nbspSupporting artists for the tour include Yaves, D-MAUB, UK based artist Jahaziel, and Nate &ldquoNF&rdquo Feuerstein.
