Newsong’s Russ Lee talks Winter Jam 2014, Holt International and ‘donut will power’

Newsong hosts Winter Jam, the Jam Tour, which features ten of the top Christian musicians for a general admission price of $10.

Newsong band photoDiscussing the tour with The Global Dispatch, Russ Lee describes the show and what fans can expect from the awesome lineup which includes Newsboys, Lecrae, Colton Dixon, Thousand Foot Krutch, PLUMB, Tenth Avenue North, Love & The Outcome, Everfound, Derek Minor & Speaker Nick Hall.

“I just reminded the crowd last night they paid $1 to see Lecrae, $1 to see Newsboys,” Lee said describing the incredible deal Winter Jam offers.

“People were paying more to park their car than they are to get in… Our passion is to make Christian music accessible to families and to make it affordable to families. We want God to be glorified and families to be blessed, taken care of and to be encouraged.”

Lee discusses the atmosphere, reaching out to youth, glorifying God and reaching out to “people from every race, people from every race, people from every nation…just worshiping.”

Lee tells a story of Colton Dixon and his early days.

One of the key partners for Winter Jam is Holt International and Lee details the organization’s mission of getting kids from all over the globe adopted and sponsored until they are adopted.

A funny part of the interview is Lee discussing humanity’s inability for self-control before opening his heart about his life, being home with his family and teaching a Bible study to youth.
