CHARLESTON, WV -

Experience the heartfelt lyrics of one of the most recognized groups in Contemporary Christian music when MercyMe takes the stage at 8 p.m. May 9 at the Clay Center in Charleston.

The crowd will hear hits like “Word of God Speak” and “Here With Me,” as well as music from their brand new album, “Welcome to the New.”

A force in the Christian music world since their 2001 smash-hit debut single “I Can Only Imagine,” MercyMe has remained one of the genre’s most successful bands for nearly two decades. With a new album just released in April and their latest single, “Shake,” racing up the charts, lead singer Bart Millard and the boys are still moving audiences with their inspirational messages and fun beats.

Opening acts are up-and-coming Christian band Citizen Way, known for hits like “Should’ve Been Me,” and “Nothing Ever (Could Separate Us),” and local group Bible Center Band from Charleston’s own Bible Center Church.

Part of the Clay Center Presents Spring 2014 season, this performance is sponsored by Greystone Consulting and Joe Holland Chevrolet.

Tickets for MercyMe are $25, $35, $45 and $60 and can be purchased online at theclaycenter.org, in person at the Clay Center box office or by phone at 304-561-3570.
