It was Chris Tomlin’s vision to bring people together in one night to experience the power of song, preaching and worship. “God put (the vision for Worship Night in America) in my heart to bring together people to worship — and to pray for our nation.” said Tomlin.
The events took place in arenas of LA, Denver, Chicago, Miami and New York. Chris brought along speakers and artists Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, Matt Redman, Matt Maher, Phil Wickham, Kim Walker-Smith, Bryan and Katie Torwalt, Steven Curtis Chapman, Tasha Cobbs, and DJ Promote.
As for the production, the biggest challenge this year was a last minute video shoot taking place at the Madison Square Garden. We worked with the video production company to make sure the lighting was correct for the shoot, but with no extra load-in time. We were able to utilize the in house audience lighting package, but with that created some challenges as well. Each song had to be programmed with the additional rig to match what was already programmed on the stage. If anyone knows New York, when the stage goes black, whether you are done or not, you’re done.
These events are always fun and bring on a new challenge to our team.
