Tenth Avenue North Scores Two No. 1 Radio Singles This Year: Reunion recording artist Tenth Avenue North is at the top of the radio charts again this week with its hit song “By Your Side” claiming the No.1 spot on R&R’s AC Indicator chart. “By Your Side,” off of the band’s debut album Over and Underneath (5/20/2008), joins its first radio single, “Love Is Here” as a No. 1 hit and makes Tenth Avenue North the only new artist in Christian music to have multiple No. 1 singles in 2008. “Love Is Here,” reached No. 1 on the CRW CHR radio chart earlier this year. Also impacting this week is news of Tenth Avenue North receiving the 2008 Readers’ Choice Christian Music Award for “Best New Artist.” The award is given by Christianitytoday.com and voted on by Christian music fans. A very moved Mike Donehey, the band’s lead vocalist, shares, “This is completely humbling and encouraging. Being recognized at radio and by fans is definitely an honor. We pray that God would continue to give us the grace to get out of the way long enough for people to see Him.” For more information about Tenth Avenue North, please visit: www.tenthavenuenorth.com.

WOW and Belmont University Volunteers Package More Than 400,000 Meals for "Feed My Starving Children": EMI Christian Music Group, Provident Music Group and Word Entertainment have long collaborated in the marketing and distribution of WOW compilation projects. This Wednesday, the collective staff of the three companies, along with students from Belmont University, banded together to package a record number 427,000 meals for the non-profit hunger-relief organization, Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). The number of meals packaged at this event is enough to feed 1,169 children for one year. The more than 1,500 volunteers worked in shifts that started at 10:00 AM and ran through 8:00 PM, packaging specially formulated meals in assembly-line fashion. Each FMSC meal provides the key nutrients a child needs to survive and thrive. Laura Nielsen, Offsite Operations Manager for Feed My Starving Children, shared, “The ‘WOW Shares’ event was an incredible success. Not only did we pack a record-breaking amount of meals in one day, but we also helped changed the world for so many kids in Thailand.” Over the lunch break, Brandon Heath (Reunion Records/Provident Music Group), Francesca Battistelli (Fervent Records/Word Entertainment) and Josh Wilson (Sparrow/EMI CMG Label Group) performed a concert for volunteers that numbered in excess of 1,500. Lunch was generously donated for volunteers by Sodexo, Belmont’s food services provider.
