The internationally-recognized rock band NEEDTOBREATHE performed on the Grove stage Sunday as the featured spring concert organized by the Student Activities Association.
The group was joined by folk-rock musician Mat Kearney as the opening act, and has released five full-length studio albums, many of which have gone on to receive a slew of Gospel Music Awards as well as a Grammy nomination for best Contemporary Christian Music Performance.
The outdoor show was free of admission. There were more than 1,000 students and campus visitors in attendance. The Grove was filled with the chatter of friends and family as the band played some of their biggest hits such as “Feet, Don’t Fail Me Now” and “Something Beautiful.”
“Their performance was amazing,” Shadoria Anderson,  a psychology major, said. “They were full of energy and just all around fun. Their music is super rock and it was very refreshing to see Christian artists that weren’t the stereotypical sound.”
