Compassion Canada presents ‘Light My Way’ tour

A new music tour coming to the City will raise funds for Compassion Canada.

Singer and worship leader Dan Bremnes kicked off the ‘Light My Way’ tour presented by Compassion Canada earlier this month and makes a Red Deer stop on April 30 at Living Stones Church.

Bremnes is no stranger to the stage, having previously opened for artists such as Mercy Me and Jars of Clay, but this will be his first headlining tour. He will perform tracks from his second release Light My Way.

“I am really proud of these new songs,” Bremnes said. “I’m honoured to share them in person on stages across western Canada this spring.”

The tour will visit 12 cities throughout B.C. and Alberta, playing chapels and sanctuaries. Bremnes will also share his experience as a child sponsor, and fans can expect to hear about his travels overseas with Compassion.

Bremnes’ passion for worship and music started at age 12 when he learned how to play the drums. After backing up artists Heather Clarkand and Greg Sczebel, an interest for writing and recording his own music developed.

In 2010, he released his first full-length album Your Strength which received six Covenant (CGMA) nominations including Male Vocalist Of The Year.

His poetic and attention-grasping style of music has also gained radio play across Canada, managing to chart three times on the ‘CCRC’ (Top 30 Canadian Christian Radio Countdown).

One of his tracks You Are received an award from the International Songwriting Competition as well as a finalist position in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition.

Tickets for the Red Deer performance are available at www.DanBremnes.com.

Canadians sponsor more than 90,000 children through Compassion Canada, a Christian child development organization.

Together with its international partners, Compassion works through 6,000 churches in 26 nations to serve more than a million children living in poverty.

In 2013, the charity is celebrating 50 years of service in Canada. For more information, visit www.compassion.ca.
