Susan Boyle Headlines Guest Lineup for Trinity Broadcasting Network Special, 6/22
It's a very special Sunday evening edition of Trinity Broadcasting Network's Praise the Lord music and talk show, as hosts Matthew and Laurie Crouch welcome Britain's Got Talent singing sensation Susan Boyle, Flip It Forward real estate renovation experts David and Jason Benham, and popular speaker and author Tullian Tchividjian.
In 2009 Susan Boyle, a 47-year-old single woman from a small village in Scotland, inspired the world when she stepped onto the Britain's Got Talent stage and told an incredulous Simon Cowell that she wanted to become a professional singer. The audience snickered, Cowell and his panel of judges rolled their eyes, but the ridicule turned to tears and deafening cheers when Ms. Boyle blew everyone away with an unforgettable rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables (Click Here to see that moving performance and Ms. Boyle's discovery). Since then Susan Boyle has traveled the world to rave reviews as enthusiastic fans have purchased more than twenty million copies of her gold and platinum albums. Ms. Boyle will share her amazing story and faith, along with her beautiful voice.
Real estate experts David and Jason Benham may be most famous as the hosts of a home renovation reality show, slated to debut on a national cable network, that was canceled before it ever got on the air. The twin brothers were well into production for their much anticipated show Flip It Forward, that had them helping families create their dream homes from fixer-uppers, when complaints about their Christian witness and stand on moral values hit the Internet and social media, prompting the network to abruptly drop the program. The brothers will share their story of growing up as the sons of a well-known Christian leader, and the secret to standing firm in faith when the culture demands compromise.
TBN will also welcome pastor, author, and popular speaker Tullian Tchividjian, grandson of beloved evangelist Dr. Billy Graham and pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Hailed as part of "the face of a new generation of Christian leadership in America," Pastor Tchividjian will bring TBN's global audience a message of hope and encouragement.
