Crowder and Colton Dixon to perform in waterfront concert Wednesday

His Generation is hosting David Crowder with Colton Dixon in concert at Roanoke Island Festival Park on Wednesday, June 19. Crowder and Dixon will bring a wide range of sounds from bluegrass and gospel to Christian contemporary and praise and worship.

Crowder began his journey in music when he attended Baylor University. When he learned that over half of the students at the Christian university weren’t attending church, he began to actively recruit students for worship. His focus was to write songs to draw more young people and the David Crowder Band was formed. Crowder set out on his solo career in 2014. His latest single “Red Letters” delivers a powerful message in his classic style.

Dixon began singing at an early age, but was catapulted into the public eye during Season 11 of American Idol. His debut album A Messenger set the record for the biggest first-week sales by a new solo Christian artist. He won the Dove Award for Best Contemporary/Rock Album and carried two No.1 radio singles in 2013. Colton’s style is diverse, varying between metal breakdowns, full-on classic rock, piano-driven vocals and everything in between. When His Generation welcomed Dixon in December with a Christmas tour on the Outer Banks, “We had a huge response from the parents and grandparents in our community,” said volunteer Heather Marik. “They were blown away by his talent, his humility and they wanted more!”

The show starts at 7 p.m. on June 19 at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo. Priority, group and general admission tickets are available. Food vendors will be on site and parking will be available at the Manteo Elementary and Manteo High schools with bus transportation to and from the event. Tickets can be purchased at the His Generation website hisgen.org/
