Acappella in Brazil
OC’s partnership with renowned Christian recording artist Acappella continues to bear fruit.
In addition to promoting Oklahoma Christian at concerts throughout the United States, Acappella recently spread the word about OC on a seven-city tour of Brazil.
Acappella sang and ministered in Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Recife and Sao Paulo.
Every concert attracted large crowds, including a sold-out, standing-room-only crowd of 6,000 people at the tour finale in Sao Paulo.
Most of the concerts were held in church buildings to assist congregations with outreach to their communities.
The group also partnered with local churches and missionaries in their ministries to orphans, the homeless and others in need.
“Being on the front lines and interacting directly with churches, one can sense and know how the Spirit is working – powerfully and directly through the hearts of our brothers and sisters,” said Acappella founder Keith Lancaster, who accompanied the group to Brazil. “Praise God that He can use broken vessels like us for His purposes.”
Acappella’s members include Robin Brannon, OC alumnus Wes McKinzie (98), and current OC students Zac George, Anthony Lancaster and Zachary Wilson.
Though Acappella promotes Oklahoma Christian at its concerts, it does not function as an OC performing group like Summer Singers and New Reign, and is booked outside the university.
To book Acappella for a concert in your city, contact John Bynum at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (580) 399-4758.
