Nashville, Tenn. (Aug. 26, 2019) – Compassion LIVE is announcing the “Celebrate Christmas Tour” with Natalie Grant and Danny Gokey. The award-winning vocalists will unite for the fourth year, but will mark the 2019 holiday season with the tour’s first ever West Coast trek. The dozen dates will stretch from California, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon and more.
“I’m so excited to once again head out on our annual Christmas tour,” explains Grant. “This really is my favorite tour of the year, and I’m so excited for audiences on the west coast to experience the special evening Danny and I have put together!”
“Christmas is my favorite holiday because of the message of the music,” shares Gokey. “Love came down to us, to reach us where we are. It’s where true love began! The fact that we get to bring that message to life through this tour is why it’s one of my favorite tours that I do! Musically, I love the way Natalie & bring our styles together in an interactive set and I’m excited to share it with audiences on the West Coast this year.”
