Night of Joy 2010

Christian ‘Artists of the Year’ Third Day, mercyme, Chris Tomlin plus Nominees Casting Crowns, Francesca Battistelli Top Star-Powered 15-Act Lineup

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Past Christian music
“Artists of the Year” Third Day, mercyme and Chris Tomlin and 2010 “Artist of
the Year” nominees Casting Crowns and Francesca Battistelli head a star-powered
15-act lineup set for Disney’s Night of Joy 2010 Sept. 10-11 when the
long-running Christian music event makes its return to Magic Kingdom.

Also part of the two-night event (when specific
acts play one evening each): David Crowder*Band, Family Force 5, Red,
BarlowGirl, Group 1 Crew, Day of Fire, Smokie Norful, Lecrae, 10th Avenue North
and Sidewalk Prophets.

From 7 p.m. until 12:30 a.m. each night – after
regular Magic Kingdom hours – the special-ticket event will feature live
performances on several stages throughout the park.  In addition, guests can experience some of
the park’s most popular attractions during Night of Joy hours.

Musically, the acts add up to a lineup that
runs the spectrum from Rock, Hip Hop and R&B … to Pop, Adult Contemporary
and Gospel – continuing a tradition that has been a hallmark of Night of Joy
since 1983 when the event began.

It’s also a lineup laden with accolades.  Ten of the artists have amassed a combined 81
Gospel Music Association Dove Awards and six The Recording Academy Grammy
Awards.  Twelve of the artists are
nominated for a total of 33 Dove Awards this year.  Winners will be announced April 21 at
Nashville's famed Grand Ole Opry House.

Five artists are new to Night of Joy, bringing the event’s all-time talent list to 144 Christian music acts. The newbies:

  •      10th Avenue North, the 2009 New Artist of the Year
  •      Group 1 Crew, which has carried home Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year honors the past two years
