On Monday, CAB announced Needtobreathe will perform at Campbell University for the Spring Concert on March 31.
Excitement grew throughout the coming weeks as the campus anticipated the unveiling of this year’s annual spring concert entertainer.
“It was a very easy decision for us. Needtobreathe is very Campbell style,” CAB concert chair and junior Cynthia Wroten said. “Other bands in the past had that alternative style. We are expecting community outreach from people in the outside community attending. They are just awesome.”
Needtobreathe is a Christian alternative band based in Charleston, South Carolina. The band’s work has included hits such as 2009′s “Something Beautiful,” and a spot in Taylor Swift’s 2011 “Speak Now” tour.
“They fit our atmosphere well. We had even put an offer on them before. They not only appeal to Campbell, but they are also a good pull for the community. We are hoping it will work out well,” Senior and CAB President Kena Hawkins said.
Others appear to also appreciate a scheduled performance by a Christian genre group.
CAB Vice President and CU senior, Alex Dollsma said,”I love them; they are a good band. We need to change up the genre, it’s good to go to Christian. Maybe they’ll even have country next year.”
Tickets go on sale Feb. 3 at 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
Campbell University undergraduates with an ID card receive free admission for themselves unless purchasing the night of the concert.
