The Dove Award-winning Sidewalk Prophets will bring the “Great Big Family Christmas Tour” to Olivet’s campus on December 15, 2018. The Olivet student musicians will appear with the band at every date on the tour during December.

“Olivet is excited to partner with the Sidewalk Prophets for this Christmas season tour,” says Dr. Don Reddick, dean of the School of Music. “We consider this musical partnership as an opportunity to help proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

Each evening on the tour promises to be joyful and interactive with holiday fun. There will also be an offering collected to benefit a local community in need. The audience will hear holiday classics along with Sidewalk Prophets originals from their 2013 release, Merry Christmas To You, such as their No. 1 hit, “What A Glorious Night,” and the top 5 hit, “Hey Moon.”
