Canton Junction Concert This Weekend
Dove Award-winning Difference Media recording artist Canton Junction is set to bring their “Get Your Praise On” tour to Winter Park’s Aloma Church (1815 SR 436) on Saturday, March 5 at 4:00 PM. They will be joined by special guests Karen Peck & New River. Fans are also invited to a special “Meet & Eat” at 2:30 PM where they will have the opportunity to share a meal with the artists before the concert.
The concert is free, but donations will be accepted for Sanctuary of Hope, an outreach of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, focusing on the building and development of an unwed mother’s facility; state-of-the-art orphanage; and world class boarding school.
“We love having the opportunity to share songs from Every Hallelujah on this tour,” said Canton Junction’s Matthew Hagee. “It’s a special treat for us to get to connect with so many at the “Meet & Eat” events before the shows.”
Canton Junction’s latest recording, Every Hallelujah, debuted at #1 on Nielsen SoundScan’s Southern Gospel Overall Chart and in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Top Current Contemporary Christian chart, following its release last year. Produced by award-winning musician Garry Jones, Every Hallelujah marks the first recording to feature new members Casey Rivers (lead) and Ryan Seaton (baritone), as they join founding members Matthew Hagee and Tim Duncan on 13 powerful selections. Led by the soaring first single, “Weep No More,” the project features contributions from many of Gospel music’s finest songwriters, including Kenna West, Sue C. Smith, Lee Black, Ben Storie and Ronny Hinson, among others.
