With Surprise “Pop Up Worship” Events
Next One Is This Monday in Charlotte, NC
PR — It’s been a rollercoaster ride of a year for Casey J who burst onto the gospel scene last year like a fireworks display with her radio smash “Fill Me Up” that spent 14 weeks at #1 on Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart and sold over 50,000 digital downloads. Casey’s rousing new Top 20 radio single “I’m Yours” is on its way to the top and also hails from her #1 album “The Truth” (Marquis Boone Enterprises/Tyscot).
A huge part of Casey J’s appeal isn’t only her artsy hairstyle (a Mohawk medley with Senegalese twists), Bohemian clothes and her acoustic vibes but also her unique approach to worship music. Much of her sound is stripped down and centers on the acoustic guitar. Always looking for creative ways to express her love of worship music, Casey J recently came up with the idea of Pop Up worship concerts as a way to reach non-churchgoers.
“There are so many people who aren’t going to come to church on a Sunday morning,” Casey J says. “So, I was talking to God about it and He gave me this idea to do Pop Up worship concerts. So my guitarist Korey Bowie and I just go to a random park, announce it on Instagram the same day and whoever comes just comes.
There’s no cost. It’s just like-minded people meeting to fellowship and sing. A lot of people who don’t even know we’re in the park will look and see what we’re doing and they’ll join in. We decided not to wait for the people to come to us but we decided to go to them. There’s no pressure to dress a certain way, you come as you are and we’re out in nature, which I love. Kids are playing and we’re just having a really cool worship experience. It’s really organic.”
The next Pop Up worship event takes place this Monday, August 31 @6:00 PM at Freedom Regional Park, 1900 East Boulevard, Charlotte, NC 28203. Top Ten gospel artist Travis Greene will be Casey J’s special guest.
