Temple Baptist Church in Jamestown has annouced that the band Cloverton will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, at the church. There will be a freewill offering.
The tour is sponsored by Compassion International and will also feature national touring artist Leanna Crawford.
Cloverton propelled onto the Christian music scene in 2011 as the first Rock the Camp contest winners hosted by TobyMac and Camp Electric. Soon after, Cloverton scored the No. 1 most downloaded song in the history of KLOVE radio for its first single, "Take Me into the Beautiful.” The band has since recorded and released two full length albums (Patterns 2013) (Bloom 2017), as well as multiple EPs. The group's Christmas rendition of Leonard Cohen’s song “Hallelujah” reached millions of viewers (YouTube) in just weeks while climbing to the No 1 slot on iTunes and being featured on CNN, in addition to other news and media outlets. With the worldwide success of “A Hallelujah Christmas,” Cloverton released a Christmas EP titled We Sing Joy, which topped the charts for multiple weeks. This year, Cloverton releases its second Christmas EP titled Come and Adore, which will be featured during the upcoming tour
A new singer songwriter to the Christian music scene, Leanna Crawford’s song “Moment by Moment” won Praise 106.5’s Music Search (2013) and kickstarted her musical career. After receiving her music business degree from Northwest University (Kirkland, Washington), Crawford moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue her calling full time. Grammy nominated and Dove Award winner Matthew West began working with her in an artist development capacity, and she was most recently signed as thefirst female artist to Story House Collective’s roster.
The Christmas experience with Cloverton has been performed before audiences all across the country during the last four Advent seasons. The four-piece pop-rock outfit performs to reach young and old with their renditions of the Christmas classics, fusing their melodic influences with the timeless songs that generations have been singing and enjoying for years. They perform classic hymns like "What Child is This" and"Joy to the World" along with crowd-pleasing numbers like "Carol of the Bells" and "A Hallelujah Christmas."
