LOS ANGELES, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FANetwork is launching Global Sounds May 9 with an intimate, free concert by GRAMMY-nominated Jeremy Camp, broadcast exclusively on Facebook. Live from his Nashville home, Camp will bring an hour-and-a-half of songs and the stories behind them straight into Facebook fans' homes and churches. Individuals will be able to interact with Camp through the "Jeremy Camp Live" Facebook application, directly asking questions of and sharing comments with Camp.
The concert is only one aspect of Global Sounds' offering to provide never-before-seen videos and messages from Camp about his music and mission. Through a simple pledge of $5 for individuals or $20 for youth groups, fans will support Camp's non-profit Speaking Louder Ministries and receive a 60-day, all-access pass to content, opportunities and surprises from Camp, accessed only through the Facebook App https://apps.facebook.com/jeremycampconcert/.
"Global Sounds is more than a one-time concert, it is a way to gather the body of believers and give Christian artists an opportunity to express themselves and engage with fans like never before," said Charlie Stuart Gay, president of FANetwork. "Camp's heart is evident in his songs, but Global Sounds offers a chance for him to share the inspiration and meaning behind them, as well as his music's impact for the Lord around the world. We believe he is the ideal artist to be featured in the premier Global Sounds broadcast."
Utilizing FANetwork's proprietary satellite television F-broadcast technology delivered within the Facebook platform, Global Sounds is leading the way in the future of Facebook broadcasting. Available through the web as well as on mobile phones and iPads, Global Sounds will feature access to a new artist each month.
In addition to the May 9 event, Global Sounds is also hosting the "Express Yourself: Upload. Share. Connect." contest through its Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/fanetworktv, providing 25 Camp fans the opportunity to receive a shout out on the live broadcast, be included in a Global Sounds video promo, and win an ultimate VIP fan pack for a future Camp concert. Global Sounds is inviting youth groups to enter for the chance to win a personal Skype session with Camp by becoming a youth group partner and sharing a 60-second video on the Global Sounds Facebook page. Details are available at http://www.fanetwork.tv/jc_comp/.
The May 9 Camp concert will air live at 9 p.m. EDT on multiple Facebook pages including https://apps.facebook.com/jeremycampconcert/.
