The much-anticipated Cross Movement “Hip Hop Honors-Style” Tribute Concert will not take place during this summer’s Legacy Conference. The Legacy Conference is held each year in Chicago, IL at Moody Bible Institute. Organizers planned to honor The Cross Movement this year for their impact on the Christian Hip Hop Community during the past 15 + years.
As previously announced on Wade-O Radio Episode 269, many of today’s top Christian Hip Hop Artists were slated to perform cover versions of popular Cross Movement hits. In addition, the Cross Movement would be presented with the first ever Legacy Honors Award. The evening was to be capped with Cross Movement performing together for the first time in over 5 years.
Brian Dye, Mentorship Director for Grip Youth and Founder of the Legacy Conference released the following statement today via email:
“It is with great regret that we are announcing the postponement of the Cross Movement Tribute at this summer’s Legacy Conference. It is our deepest hope that we will be able to honor the Cross Movement in the near future as their legacy has impacted countless lives for the glory of Christ.
Each of the members of the Cross Movement are still scheduled to be in attendance with us at The Legacy this July 25-27. They will be with us to fellowship, meet many of the Legacy attendees and teach workshops.”
There is no timetable for when the Tribute will take place.
This year’s conference will still be headlined by John Piper, Lecrae, shai linne, Andy Mineo, Dr. Anthony Bradley, Propaganda and Dhati Lewis. The three day conference attracts attendees from around the world and features two full days of teaching, two major concerts, a spoken word cafe, Rapzilla’s 16 Bar MC Challenge and a full day of outreach. The Cross Movement Tribute was set to take place during one of the concerts.
The Legacy Conference will honor anyone who registered specifically for the Cross Movement Tribute. Those who would like a full reimbursement are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org. Dye insists that every request will be honored.
