Since its formation by NewSong in 1995, The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular has featured many of the top names in Christian music, including TobyMac, Third Day, Newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman, Lecrae, Skillet, and more! The tour has outpaced any other tour's attendance for the past four years (according to Pollstar, 1st Qtr.).
Winter Jam is an incredible evening of live concerts by the top artists in Christian music, plus worship and ministry, to encourage believers and share the good news with those who have yet to trust Christ.
When NewSong began Winter Jam, it was based on the idea of removing cost barriers, so more people could attend, be encouraged by the music, and hear the gospel. Years later, those are still the foundations of Winter Jam.

The Cavaliers faced their sixth loss in a row as they went up against the Indiana Pacers. Without Anderson Varejao, who sat for a second game because of a bruised knee, the Cavaliers struggled to a 99-89 loss. It didn't help either that The reigning Rookie of the Year, had six turnovers. shooting a team high of just 17 points.
Time and again in the third quarter, the Pacers found ways to feed the ball inside for easy baskets. In the same quarter the Pacers held the cavaliers to a 39 percent shooting. Some of the trouble in the third quarter came from sloppy overall play. Late in the third quarter, Tyler Zeller threw his in bounds pass intended for Daniel Gibson but was swiped by an Indiana player, George, who sank a layup and was fouled by Zeller. When George missed the free throw Zeller got the rebound… but somehow lost the ball, and again, George slammed another basket.
