CELEBRATED SIBLINGS LYNDA RANDLE AND MICHAEL TAIT
REUNITE FOR POPULAR ‘TOGETHER FOR CHRISTMAS’ TOUR
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Two of Christian music’s most celebrated siblings and unparalleled vocalists, Dove Award winner Lynda Randle and GRAMMY®-nominated Newsboys frontman Michael Tait, are once again joining forces for their popular “Together For Christmas” Tour. The genre-spanning duo is slated to present eight concerts in a total of six cities across the country this holiday season.
The limited-run Christmas outing launches November 27 at Blue Gate Performing Arts Center in Shipshewana, Indiana, where Randle and Tait will welcome special guest GRAMMY®-nominated trio Point of Grace for one night only. The “Together For Christmas” Tour will also hit Alexandria, Virginia (two shows); Santa Clarita, California; Great Bend, Kansas; and Westover, Alabama, before concluding December 18 following dual concerts at Orlando, Florida’s Family Church.
Presenting an evening of fan favorites, sacred carols and holiday classics backed by their band, the siblings will showcase a range of solo and collaborative moments, including their popular “White Christmas” and “Go Tell It On The Mountain” duets. In addition, Randle will deliver such signature songs as “God On The Mountain” and “Motherless Child,” with Tait taking the stage to perform “God’s Not Dead” and “We Believe,” among other Newsboys hits. Continuing a beloved “Together For Christmas” Tour tradition, the duo will reflect on holidays past, sharing cherished memories from family Christmases in their hometown of Washington, D.C.
“After a year of so much loss and grief, I feel blessed to be able to bring some hope, cheer and the joy of Christmas to our audiences on the ‘Together For Christmas’ Tour,” Randle says. “And being able to do that with my ‘bestie’ brother is icing on the cake!”
“Christmas is by far the best time of the year for me,” adds Tait. “It doesn’t get any better than singing classic Christmas songs and carols with my lovely sister and sibling best friend.”
Known for their holiday collaborations both on and off the road, last year Randle and Tait were among an all-star lineup of performers for the 98th National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. Presented by The National Park Foundation and The National Park Service, the on-demand broadcast event culminated with the lighting of the National Christmas Tree at President’s Park in the Nation’s Capital.
