Rosinton United Methodist Church to host concerts

Posted

ROSINTON, Alabama — Creative Soul recording artist George Tifft will be coming to Rosinton United Methodist Church for two concerts on Sunday, April 23.

Embarking on what has been dubbed the “Do Good Tour” in June 2015, Tifft and his wife Cindy have been touring the United States continuously since. They have traveled over 24,000 miles and will have performed over 225 concerts before their arrival at Rosinton UMC.

Tifft had been touring New England for 15 years with regional gospel group “The Tifton Carver Worship Band” before signing with Creative Soul Records as a solo artist. In 2014 he joined with Nashville producer Eric Copeland and together they recorded and released his first solo project, “Only One….”

“Only One…” is an original work that blends many different styles of music under the contemporary Christian banner. The songs range from a light country fare through light rock, and even into classic worship songs.

Producer Copeland gathered a team of top Nashville session musicians to back Tifft on the album and it has been garnering attention around the nation. Recently “Only One…” was selected by Pandora for access via their streaming site.

“Having my album approved and put into Pandora has really been both a surprise and a blessing,” said Tifft. “When I punched my name into the Pandora site and heard my music sandwiched between such great artists as Chris Tomlin and Casting Crowns, I must admit, I was greatly humbled.”

The "Do Good Tour" centers around encouraging people to just “do good.”

“We live in a day and age when doing the right thing has become a challenge,” Tifft said. “So many voices are attempting to get us to follow along with the status quo rather than standing up for what we know to be right.”

Tifft weaves his personal testimony into his concert presentations.

“Being molested by a priest when I was a young boy affected me greatly,” he said. “It led to many years in prison, multiple suicide attempts and more counseling than I’d care to admit. However, the ultimate healing finally came when I surrendered all of it to Christ. Jesus still heals ya know.”

The April 23 concerts will start at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. and are free and open to all. Rosinton United Methodist Church is located at 26011 Baldwin Beach Express, Robertsdale. For more information please call the Church office at 251-964-5988. A Love offering will be received to help support the Tiffts as they continue their ministry.
