Chris Tomlin has dedicated his life career to a singular pursuit: to bring people closer to God. Building a career is just fine, he says, but nothing compares to building bridges through music that lead to hope, healing and higher ground. On October 24th, Tomlin’s bridges lead him to Grand Rapids’ Van Andel Arena.
Tomlin—after ten No. 1 radio singles, a GRAMMY® Award and eight additional nominations, 21 Dove Awards, one platinum album and four gold discs—touches the hearts of listeners like no other. On the one hand, he’s achieved global scope that moved TIME magazine to proclaim him “likely the most often sung artist anywhere.” It’s estimated that more than 40 million men, women and children sing Chris Tomlin songs each week.
“I love at the end of the day how we got all these left and right turns and tried to follow them,” Tomlin says of the path that led to Burning Lights. “It was a lesson in humility. It was great to take a step back, listen to what people were saying and go for it. When a song like ‘Whom Shall I Fear’ comes along at the last minute, it's not only something you could hear on the radio, but at any church. And that means more to me than platinum records, tours and sales.”
