Special to the Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — Sidewalk Prophets will be coming to Terre Haute on Saturday for their “Live Like That” tour. Lead singer David Frey, a graduate from Terre Haute South Vigo High School, will be performing the first concert at his home church, Maryland Community Church.

Frey and Sidewalk Prophets rode the popularity of their first Word Records release, These Simple Truths, to a Dove Award for Best New Artist and a nomination for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year. The band currently has a Top 10 hit titled “Live Like That,” which is their fifth song to climb into the top 20 on the charts. In addition, their hit “You Love Me Anyway” went all the way to No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Singles chart.

The band has toured with the Rock and Worship Roadshow with MercyMe and Francesca Battistelli, among others, and landed another Dove nomination for Group of the Year in 2011.

Now, with their latest album, “Live Like That,” produced by Dove award-winner Ian Eskelin (Battistelli, Stellar Kart), the band, which also features lead guitarist Shaun Tomczak, rhythm guitarist Ben McDonald, bassist Cal Joslin and drummer Justin Nace, takes another step forward as they continue to increase their popularity among their fan base and recognition from the music industry.

The concert starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at www.mccth.org, Maryland Community Church or the Open Door Bookstore.
