SGA bringing SuperChic[k] for end-of-year concert

by Casey Overcash

Grammy-nominated pop-rock band SuperChic[K] will perform live on the front steps of DeMoss Hall May 5, according to Student Government Association Vice President Tim Ames Leong. Traveling on their Spring 2010 “Alive Tour,” the group is expected to visit 20 cities through late May. Their stop at Liberty University will be a benefit concert to support the Liberty Godparent Home. SuperChic[K] will be joined by guest artists John Reuben, Luminate and Bread of Stone. The event will be hosted by SGA.

According to a recent press release by the “Alive Tour,” Gotee recording artist John Reuben has released five albums, selling more than 250,000 records. His second album, “Hindsight,” explored his early 90s hip-hop influences while introducing some alternative pop.

Luminate has released three independent projects and toured nationwide, before signing with Sparrow Records in late 2009. Luminate states that their source of energy is in their passion for bringing others closer to Jesus. Bread of Stone is a Christian band based out of Sioux City, Iowa.

The concert was originally scheduled during the pro-life ROSE Event last semester, but due to short notice it was better to wait until the spring to wish farewell to seniors and students going home for the summer.

According to Leong, concert attendees will have an opportunity to take part in a love offering for the Liberty Godparent Home. Every student who donates will be entered into a drawing where they could win a prize.

According to Leong, Campus Church on May 5 will be held outside DeMoss Hall and the parking lot will be filled with different activities. The SuperChic[K] concert will take place after the church service ends at 9 p.m.

SGA has also teamed up with Selah yearbook. The concert will be the setting for the end of the year “Cinco de Mayo” bash, and distribution of the Selah yearbook.

Production Director Jesse Larkin has been working with Leong from the beginning to deal with the logistics of audio and lighting on the steps of DeMoss Hall.

“This was a great group effort. We’ve been able to plan and look forward to this great event that is going to be a benefit concert for the Liberty Godparent Home. It is going to be a win/win situation for everyone,” Leong said.
