IXIST Tour Launched to Share Music and Testimony Throughout U.S. and Africa

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

IXIST is more than a concert tour. It is a ministry campaign dedicated to helping people share their testimony. 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. 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.
