Week of Music: tobyMac

I’d never heard of tobyMac before attending Spirit West Coast Monterey a few years back.  I showed up to the mainstage, not knowing who was coming.  The crowd was a sea of people holding these funny shaped oblong balloons that said tobyMac on them.  I watched and waited.  As they took the stage it quickly became apparent the style was going to be a combination of rap and hip hop beats.  If you’d told me ahead of time that I’d come away a fan of a group with this style music, I’d of laughed out loud.  Little did I know… I had such a blast.

The music was great.  The energy was awesome.  I spent the set bobbing up and down with the crowd, like I was some teenager.  It was a fever of fun.

Like Michael Tait, who now fronts the Newsboys, tobyMac started with a group called D.C. Talk.  He’s a veteran performer with a true heart for God and others.
