In a concert sure to electrify the faithful, the Florida Seafood
Festival has turned to one of the most promising young artists making a name
for himself in Christian music.
Dante Bowe, worship pastor at Addereth Church in Columbus,
Georgia, will bring the sound of the Bethel Music and Maverick City Music collectives,
and Elevation Worship, to the Battery Park stage on Friday, Nov. 5, on an
evening the festival has long dedicated to a night of Christian musicianship.
The evenings worship starts at 5 p.m. with The Gathering,
and JD Music and Company, with Bowe taking the stage at 8 p.m.
Dante is very popular on Christian radio and he leads songs
with the three top Christian bands in the United States, said Anthony Croom,
the member of the festivals all-volunteer board of directors who handled the selection.
We chose Dante because he communicates a positive message
through his ministry. With his new single Joyful, we feel like our community
could and would embrace that positive and encouraging message after all that
our county has been through in the last few years, Croom said. We also wanted
to give them the best in worship this year. and Dante Bowes music is one of
the very best.
If you tune in to any church, I assure you that you will
hear music from either Elevation, Bethel or Maverick City Music, he said.

Possible,” and “Champion” have been popular hits on Christian
