“We are not in the business of entertainment… we are in the business of winning souls.” -Esteban Vargas
The “Feed The Bears” tour is in full swing and off to an amazing start. Kicking off this incredible event, bodies filled the Life Center on Saturday, October 20th, to experience beautiful worship and amazing music. The building was full to the max with artists and attendees representing all different genres, churches, communities, and walks of life, gathered in one building sharing a passion for music and for the love of Jesus Christ.
The Redeemed Collection, representing three different churches, started the night with a time of praise and worship. Following them was the hip hop stylings of Imajj and ProzperaD, getting bodies in motion with encouraging lyrics and infectious beats. Next was the raw talent and emotional vulnerability of an original song from Alex Sanchez accompanied by Ryan Hawkinson and Christian Gilbert.
The musical diversity continued with hip hop from iGorilla and some R&B by The Saint, all declaring the glory of God in many different ways. The next band to perform was Jagg, a modern rock trio whose set was full of great solos, driving bass lines, and an amazing drummer who probably almost broke the drum set… and not to mention, the perfect head-banging hair. Next was the infamous Chad & Garrett who charmed the audience with friendly personalities and incredible harmonies.
A collab track from Richard Becerra and Daniel York (The Redeemed Collection), Paul Martinez (Yielded), King D, and Bboy Nesto closed the performance portion of the event on a high note. With amazing lyrics from King D and Bboy Nesto, a driving rhythm, and overall musical excellence, the crowd was energized, excited, and above all else, encouraged.
Esteban Vargas, the mastermind of the tour and The HD Platform, then proceeded to speak to the audience. Sharing an amazing message of rebellion to redemption, many hearts were softened and ultimately given to the Lord that night. With another amazing time of worship by Holy Kiss, hands were raised, hearts were turned, and ultimately the spirit of Lord was undeniable.
As mentioned, these unbelievable events, as much fun and as entertaining as they are, are not about the show, the artists, or even the Platform itself. The sole purpose of these events is to reach the community and change our world for Jesus Christ. These events are about letting everyone know what God means to each of us. These events are designed to tear down the walls of this desert and usher as many people into the kingdom as possible…and listening to amazing music in the meantime sure doesn’t hurt.
