LeTourneau University will host the Grammy-nominated Christian group Sanctus Real in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center on the LETU campus, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview. Tickets are still available through the Belcher Center Box Office at (903) 233-3080 or online at www.BelcherCenter.com.
Sanctus Real has produced five albums that have garnered seven No. 1 radio singles (and six more that landed in the Top 5). Some of their top songs include “Lead Me,” “Forgiven,” “The Redeemer,” and “Promises.”
The Dove Award-winning band features Matt Hammitt (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Rohman (lead guitar), Mark Graalman (drums), Dan Gartley (bass) and Pete Prevost (guitar). The band produces music that tackles life’s tough questions with an unflinching commitment to honest that has endeared fans.
Sanctus Real began 16 years ago in the basement of the guitarist Rohman’s home. The band has never wavered in its mission to make music that honestly reflects the complex journey of faith. The March 9 release of the album “Pieces of a Real Heart” shows the band pushing itself both artistically and thematically and includes a depth that comes naturally with more life experience and maturity. This album shows more growth spiritually, emotionally and even musically and has connected with radio listeners.
