Ken Ham to Join the Christian Band Newsboys as Lead Singer?

The well-known Christian band, Newsboys, had its start in Victoria, Australia, back in the mid-1980s. Peter Furler, their lead singer and one of the band’s founders, stepped down from his position as lead singer in 2009, and Michael Tait, formerly of the group dc Talk, took over. Well, Newsboys decided they wanted to replace Tait with an Australian to return the band to its former sound.

After an audition here in Legacy Hall at the Creation Museum, they decided to give me the job! Rumor is that my first performance with Newsboys will be at the River Rock Christian Music Festival, here in Kentucky, September 15–16, 2017. Could it be true? Keep reading!

This festival features 15 Christian artists, including Danny Gokey, Hawk Nelson, Jeremy Camp (who has visited our Creation Museum), Newsboys, and more.

And when you purchase an adult or youth full (two-day) festival pass to River Rock, you can add a one-day pass to the Ark Encounter for only $10! That’s a $30 savings for an adult ticket. The Ark Encounter (located near Williamstown, Kentucky) is only one hour from Wilmore, Kentucky, where this musical event is taking place. This is a great opportunity to enjoy some Christian music and see the full-size Noah’s Ark for an exclusive discount.

April Fools Day!

Now, for those who haven’t figured it out yet, take a look at today’s date—it’s April 1. You can heave a sigh of relief! I haven’t really joined Newsboys (and Michael Tait hasn’t been replaced), but the exclusive discount to the Ark Encounter isn’t a joke! That part is true! If you’re a fan of contemporary Christian music, I encourage you to check out River Rock, and be sure to come visit us at the Ark Encounter.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
