ATLANTA, Ga. – October 1, 2008 – With fall's colors about to explode outside, Gospel Music Channel invites viewers to stay inside to see its vibrant new line-up of Front Row Live concerts which world premiere every weekend in October. Starting October 4, Gospel Music Channel's Front Row Live Month features electrifying and never-before-seen performances by Mary Mary, Tye Tribbett, Wynonna, Newsboys and Newworldson.

Front Row Live is Gospel Music Channel's original series featuring powerhouse artists hosting their own performances while sharing their musical inspirations in front of specially-invited audiences.
