A Night of Faith at Rock the Universe

Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida hosts a Christian music festival every year. This year was no different, as thousands of Christians flooded the park for a night filled with music from bands like Relient KTenth Avenue NorthEverfoundToby Mac and Switchfoot.

The concerts began at night but throughout the day fans had plenty of opportunities to get into the world of Christian music. Several bands, Relient K and Tenth Avenue North among them, signed autographs for fans. Everfound, a fairly new band of Russian brothers, invited fans to meet them and stop by to chat.

Although the day was filled with big names in the industry, the night was truly about their faith. Artists remain true to their music and inspired audiences to believe in themselves and their God. Toby Mac, spoke a couple of words from the Bible before beginning one of his most popular songs and other bands, like Relient K and Everfound, reminded the audience that we all go through difficult things, but that everything would be alright.

The performances were finished with an astounding performance by Switchfoot. Hundreds of fans crowded near the stage as they played some of their favorites; the crowd alone could carry the songs along.

As the night came to an end, Tenth Avenue North played worship music and others prayed over the night and everyone who had participated in as the crowd held up candles in the candlelight ceremony that take place every year.

It was a remarkable night.
