CDub at Live 8….

I have posted about Christopher Williams before. He is a singer songwriter that Allison and I love to go and see. He is also the inspiration behind Photo-A-Day. We were very fortunate to see him in Norton about 6 months ago and get a chance to talk to him. At that time he mentioned that he was going to begin opening for Jars of Clay. Well at Live 8 this past weekend he played with the band during their set in Philly. You can see the other artists too at AOL. Live 8 videos.

How did we hear about this? Well, Allison is signed up for the CDub newsletter and got it in her e-mail yesterday with links to the videos. (Video Links Here) The two songs are Flood and Show your Love. Christopher is the guy in the back playing a bongo type instrument (it has a name I can never remember or spell), His head is shaved and he has a goatee. And we can see him from time to time when the lead singer moves out of the way.

Christopher is coming back this way to play Soulfest with Jars of Clay. Soulfest is a 5 day 5 stage Christian music concert. It looks like Christopher is playing with them but not playing his own set. I hope that he’s playing some other places as well.

Christopher has been touring with Jars of Clay for a while now. And Jars of Clay have their own foundation set up called Blood:Water Mission (from the website) “The Blood:Water Mission is a non-profit organization founded by the members of the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band, Jars of Clay, to address the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa.

Blood:Water Mission exists to promote clean blood and clean water efforts in Africa, tangibly reducing the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic while addressing the underlying issues of poverty, injustice and oppression. Blood:Water is building clean water wells, supporting medical facilities, and focusing on community and worldview transformation, both here in America and in Africa.”
