Casey J Hits the Road for 50-City ‘Festival of Praise Tour’

*Within the last two years, Casey J – a former Atlanta elementary school teacher – has racked up two massive Billboard Magazine No. 1 radio singles, a No. 1 debut album that’s spent an entire year on the national sales charts and she’s also won the 2016 Stellar Gospel Music Award as New Artist of the Year.

Now, the smooth-voiced chirper is hitting the road as part of the 50-city “Festival of Praise” tour that is headlined by established gospel artists such as Fred Hammond, Israel Houghton, Karen Clark Sheard, Regina Belle and Hezekiah Walker.

The tour kicks off October 1st at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA as Casey J’s third radio single “Let It Be Known,” a festive track with urban colors, begins to race its way up the charts. It should be a crowd-pleaser on the tour.

“It’s truly a dream come true to be able to sing on the same stage as people I grew up listening to such as Fred Hammond and Israel Houghton,” she says. “The tour is going to be fun.”n- Casey J.

Casey J ’s first radio single “Fill  Me Up” spent 14 weeks atop Billboard Magazine’s Gospel Airplay chart in 2015 and her  next offering “I’m Yours” spent five weeks at No. 1 on the same chart in 2016. Her album “The Truth” (Marquis Boone/Tyscot Records) debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Gospel Albums sales chart and continues to sell briskly.

Casey J has received media coverage in The New York Times, The Atlanta Journal & Constitution and she also had a coveted performance spot on the 2016 Essence Festival. The self-proclaimed Flower Child (because she loves artsy, esoteric things) is quickly blossoming into gospel music’s next big superstar.
