FRANKLIN, TN (January 17, 2013) - iShineLIVE!, a unique faith-based concert tour designed specifically for kids under the age of 14 and their families, presents its high energy Feb/Mar tour. Officially launching February 15, 2013 in Nashville, TN, the show will run in cities nationwide, including major markets like Dallas, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Miami, Tulsa and more. Similar to Disney®, iShine®, a division of Bema Media, LLC, is a kids' media group, but iShine is the only one that produces Christian content by Christian teens for children under the age of 14. Featuring a talented line up of teen artists, the tour includes in:ciite media recording artist/guest speaker Rachel Chan, who is the daughter of New York Times best-selling author Francis Chan (Crazy Love, Forgotten God), as well as The Rubyz and Mission Six from Radio Disney, plus new artist Spencer Kane.

Designed to reach the "tween" audience (young people ages 7-13), iShineLIVE! incorporates the overall purpose and ministry of the iShine organization, which is to help pre-teens and their families to illuminate their world and find their value, identity and purpose (VIP) in Christ. Inspired by the popular Saturday morning TBN series, iShine KNECT, the No. 1 Christian tween TV program in the world now heading into its 4th season, iShine LIVE! brings you the stars of the show to a town near you for a high energy, two-hour music and ministry event. iShineLIVE! includes hit music, interactive video, dynamic speakers, worship and more fun for kids and their parents.

"These live shows," says iShine founder and Chief Creative Officer Robert Beeson, "are specifically designed to engage kids and encourage parents to effectively reach pre-teens ('tweens') in a world where kids consume approximately 60 hours of media a week on average. With all of these multi-media choices that are spinning families and kids out of balance, iShine is doing its part to provide the life-changing tools, events and destinations for young people to plug in to their lives, to community, and, most importantly, to Christ."

Rachel Chan adds, "As a teen who shares the day-to-day struggles of kids everywhere, I am humbled to be given this incredible opportunity to be a voice of my generation-and want to encourage and inspire others through music and my personal testimony in hopes of inciting this young generation to share their faith and understand what it means to live for Christ each day."
