The WE ARE MESSENGERS tour gave everyone who attended a sense of the Holy Spirit. Held at Northway Church, the setting was so intimate that you had genuine moments between the artist and the audience. Before the headline act of We Are Messengers, JJ WEEKS and David Dunn came out and did their thing!
Out of all the artist in this night, my family was most excited for David Dunn and he did not disappoint. My daughters (especially my youngest) loved the two man set up and using the “computer” as she calls it to make the music. Seems like David loved hearing this.
The song everyone (including my kids) was waiting for was the last song played ; I Wanna Go Back. The lyrics of the song are beautiful. We all had a time in our journey with Christ when our relationship was simplistic and personal. As time goes on, we lost that intimacy.
I wish I took more pictures but to be honest, I was on my feet the whole time just soaking in the moment.
You can listen to I Wanna Go Back here. In case you missed it, you can also read about We Are Messengers and the moment that made everyone quiet.

During the WE ARE MESSENGERS concert in Macon, GA a beautiful thing took place. In between sets something caught the eye of Darren Mulligan, the lead singer of We are Messengers. Darren walked over (climbing over seats people were sitting) to hug and pray for a young lady. There was a hush on the crowd and without knowing the details, I started praying for her as well. Minutes later, Darren got on stage and continued singing as if nothing happened.
On the way home, my daughter and I were talking about that moment and were in awe on how the Holy Spirit was in that concert. What was said by Darren to that young lady was to forever be a mystery.
That was until I received a comment on my post from the concert. Turns out the lady’s name is April and this is her story.
I will 150% agree with You! I was at this concert. As a matter of fact he came off stage and prayed for me! He told me I didn’t always have to be strong, that I could let go, that is was in the Lord’s hands! What he didn’t know was I had just lost my dad the previous week. The tickets were given to me just the day before by my office manager because she had something come up. GOD knew I needed to be there! Darren spoke to me with the sweetest Irish accent, and I felt as if Jesus had his arms wrapped around me! This experience was more than you will ever get from church! And I’m proud to have had my daughter and dear friend experience this with me. Later the next day I went Darren a message on Facebook asking why of all the people at this event, Why Me? He said the Holy Spirit pointed me out to him. I will NEVER forget this moment! Watching your video still bring me chills! Cant wait for you to post more!
I have to say this was one of the most awesome thing I have ever witness. I pray April that the moments with Darren gave you the peace and comfort that can only come from Christ. In Jesus Name. Amen. PJSLB
I was blessed tonight. I came to this concert wanting to hear a few of my favorite songs and ended up leaving with a revival. We Are Messengers aren’t just a band that makes good music; they are a band that oozes the Holy Spirit. From going into the crowd and praying with people to making eye contact with every single audience member, I am at awe at what God did on this night. Darren Mulligan rivals any pastor out there. I would travel miles and miles to hear him preach again.
You can find a link to their latest album here.
You can find the song above entitled My Victoryhere.
The night was also blessed by THE JJ WEEKS BAND and DAVID DUNN. I’ll have some highlights of their performance in the upcoming days as each performer did an amazing job and deserves the spotlight.
In the meanwhile, be blessed and walk with purpose for you are made perfectly by God.
I have been blessed to be a part of some really great concerts. From Jay-Z to Kanye West in the hip-hop world to Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift in the pop world. I have also experienced the Holy Spirit move in Christian Concerts. There has always been one Christian concert that has always been above and beyond any and that was by Superchick. I absolutely loved that group and i can vividly remember feeling the Holy Spirit moving in me that day. I never thought i would be fortunate to feel that way again…then i was blessed again to be part of the group that was in the Macon Collesium for the Newsboys 2016 – Love Riot Tour.
The Afters – Act THREE
I am all about lyrics. I believe that lyrics make the song and not the beat. Live and Forever by The Afters brings substance lyrically and musically. It all start with the song Shadows. With lyrics like “Wake up the statues, Breathe out the dust, Shock of a heartbeat, Rush of the blood, Breaking into my skin, Feel the burning again, I can’t escape it, Its time to rise up from the shadows” this is a song / album that will get any Christian hyped. Battles is the song that everyone knows and that is not bad. Anytime a song says that God “is fighting my battles” is always a good thing. Want a song that will just get you up and ready for the day…listen to Time of my Life. Their set during the 2016 Love Riot tour was all about that bass and boom with drums and drums galore. Everyone was hitting a drum and trust me you can feel it in the arena. It was a sight to behold. One of the drums was hit so hard it actually fell on the floor (It was red and yes i saw it…lol) but the group continued without missing a beat. The families favorite part of the whole set was the performance of Live on Forever. If you have never heard of it (which would completely shock me), you need to listen to it right now.
On a side note, this guys are probably the coolest group of artist you will meet. The patience to take all those pictures and to take time to talk to everyone is amazing and a blessing. Keep up the good work guys in spreading the word of God thru music.
