NASHVILLE, Tenn. JUNE 3, 2014 /GBOD/ – Like the Phoenix, Tedashii is rising from the ashes of life. Known for his deep voice with a delivery style that has a wide range of flow schemes and patterns, the Christian hip-hop artist will be featured this fall at YOUTH 2015’s 10-city GO ON Tour.

The GO ON Tour, an innovative and engaging approach to reaching as many United Methodist youth as possible, will be a high impact, energetic and low-cost experience to build momentum for YOUTH 2015, the quadrennial national gathering of United Methodist youth and leaders, scheduled for June 24-28, 2015. Both events are sponsored by Young People’s Ministries, a division of the General Board of Discipleship (GBOD).

“The idea behind the GO ON Tour is to bring a one-night preview of the worship and concert experience of YOUTH 2015 to major United Methodist areas all over the nation,” said- Blake Thornell, event manager for Young People’s Ministries. “With top United Methodist speakers and a cutting edge artist like Tedashii at each location, this tour is truly going to be an experience that no United Methodist youth or youth leader will want to miss.”

Tedashii is sure to set the house on fire. After experiencing the tragic death of his 1-year-old son last year, the multi-talented artist released his autobiographical fourth album, “Below Paradise” this week.

GO ON Tour tickets are $15 in advance and are available, along with more information about YOUTH 2015, at www.YOUTH2015.com.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
