ISRAEL HOUGHTON LAUNCHES LOVE REVOLUTION TOUR!

Written by: Melanie Pratt

Israel Houghton has launched his “The Love Revolution” tour following the Aug. 31 release of his critically acclaimed, No. 1 selling album, Love God. Love People. The major market tour began September 5 in San Diego and will wrap November 20 in Philadelphia, PA.

Highlighting the greatest Gospel commandment with Love God. Love People., Israel played the title track of the recording for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno crowd as he sat in recently with Rickey Minor and the Tonight Show Band, and now carries that message into the “The Love Revolution” tour.

“Love God. Love People. is a return to a simple, foundational Gospel command: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself,” says Israel. “Virtually every song touches on this profound simplicity. It all comes down to ‘love God, love people.’ Period.”

In this spirit, and in the midst of the tour, Israel will also play songs from the new album for an AIDS benefit concert Sept. 26 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Hosted by Magic Johnson and Blair Underwood, the benefit culminates the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s first annual “AIDS California Walk” to be held in Griffith Park.

In addition to featuring the new music from Love God. Love People. on tour, Israel will highlight his hit songs and fan favorites spanning nine best selling recordings as a solo artist and with New Breed. Joining Israel for the tour will be longtime collaborator Aaron Lindsey, along with guest appearances by Michael Gungor in select markets.
