SINGAPORE – Jesus Youth Singapore and SACCRE Youth are organizing a three-hour musical outreach – "Destination Christ, Rexband Live in Singapore" – on Friday Jun 27 at 7.30pm at the Rock Auditorium at Suntec City Mall.
Rexband is the musical outreach of Jesus Youth, a Catholic youth movement with a charismatic spirituality. Jesus Youth began in India and is now active in 22 countries, including Singapore.
Rexband has performed over 500 shows worldwide over the last decade. It was the first Indian band to perform on the main stage at World Youth Day 2002 at Toronto. The band also performed at WYD2005 in Cologne, and has been invited for WYD2008 in Sydney.
The band consists of over 25 professionals (active in various fields) with a talent in music and theatre. They have banded together to take this gift of quality contemporary Christian music and its message to today’s urban youth. They do this through music albums, stage shows and encounter programmes.
Rexband has released 11 music albums in various languages over the past decade. One of these, "Quiet Waters", is a collection of psalms set to contemplative music. The latest album, "Destination Christ", includes a tribute to Pope John Paul II.
The typical three-hour Rexband show integrates music, choreography and contemporary theatre performances to present the message of Jesus in a powerful and attractive way.
