Nashville, TN – (November 7, 2013) –Last night in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, Word Entertainment’s Love & The Outcome were the evening’s top winner, taking home four of the five awards they were nominated for at GMA Canada’s 35th Annual Covenant Awards. In addition to being crowned “New Artist of the Year,” the Canadian duo reigned in three additional awards including “Song of the Year,” “Recorded Song of the Year” and “Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year” for their debut single “He Is With Us.” The single has skyrocketed to the top of the charts in just a few short months and currently sits at No. 7 on the Canadian Christian Radio Chart and No. 8 in the U.S. on Billboard Christian Songs Chart. It is the lead single from their self-titled debut album which was released on August 27 to critical acclaim. Tomorrow Love & The Outcome will embark on the “Winter Jam Tour Spectacular,” the No. 1 tour in the world (1st quarter), for 11 dates through November and an additional 47 dates in January, February and March 2014. On November 30, they’ll join NewSong on their “Very Merry Christmas Tour” for 15 dates.
“We are blown away by the love and support of the Canadian Christian music industry and all of our friends and family who have walked this road with us,” said Love & The Outcome’s Jodi King. “We toured this beautiful country living out of our Jetta for two years which is where the song ‘He Is With Us’ came from. We are so amazed by how God is using our story!”
For Chris and Jodi, Love & The Outcome is both a name and a literal life story. The duo sold their Winnipeg condo en route to a high-stakes musical road trip that has seen them criss-cross Canada, Liberia, the Philippines and China, winning over fans both emotionally and spiritually with their blend of effervescent pop. After signing to Word Records in 2012, they retreated to the mountains of Washington state to record their powerful debut, produced by Mosley along with Ben Glover (for King & Country) and David Garcia (TobyMac). In 2013 the duo have been on the road supporting Francesca Battistelli on her “Hundred More Years Tour” and NewSong for their “Swallow The Ocean Tour.” For tour dates and further information please visit www.loveandtheoutcome.com
