Newsong is a contemporary Christian music group that was founded in 1981. The group has 12 GMA Dove Award nominations and one Grammy Award nomination. The group founded the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, the U.S.’s largest annual Christian music tour.
“I think what keeps us going is not necessarily the fun we have with the music, but it’s that time at the end of the evening when we see people respond,” said Newsong founding member Billy Goodwin. “It’s like a shot of adrenaline. It’s amazing to see God use what little bit we’re doing to reach people. That’s really our motivation.”
Eddie Carswell, another founding member of Newsong agrees.
“We still love what we’re doing and it’s always incredible to hear how God has used our music to touch someone’s life,” he said. “God’s the one orchestrating this whole thing, and he’s blessed us more and more as the years have gone by. It’s a remarkable thing to see how it all works out, and we’ll just keep riding the waves to see what God wants to do next.”
