TOBYMAC WOWS OVER 10K FANS
26 June 2007

As his “Portable Sounds” continues to be a top 5 best-seller after more than 4 months of release, GRAMMY – nominated artist TobyMac recently performed for over 10,000 fans at the virtual world for teen and pre-teen girls and boys....Whyville.com. Thousands caught TobyMac live in concert at Whyville's Greek Theatre, featuring songs from the new CD and a few of his old favorites too. In addition to the Citizens of Whyville promoting tobyMac on their own blogs, there were several hundred hits generated by the three major search engines, MSN, Google and Yahoo!, while over 3,000 chat questions were submitted during the concert, and over 4600 fans attended the Tailgate Party.

* Also, on July 3rd, exclusively on YAHOO!, fans will be able to check out the World Premiere of TobyMac’s new music video for the song “Boomin’’, filmed recently in LA.

* TobyMac’s latest single from “Portable Sounds” is continuing to connect this artist with multi-format listeners, as “I’m For You” is already Top 20 on Christian AC and Top 5 Christian CHR (No. 4) after only a few weeks. This week the song is up 10 slots on the AC Monitored chart (R&R) at No. 18 (from No. 28).

“Portable Sounds” debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at No. 10 and No. 1 on SoundScan Contemporary Christian Overall chart, marking this his highest solo career debut selling 50,645 units.

Also during street week, “Portable Sounds” broke into the Top 10 overall albums on iTunes. Prior to street week, TobyMac’s retail single “Made to Love” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot Singles chart and remains in the Top 5. This single also topped the SoundScan Christian Digital Track chart.

TobyMac released his solo debut (Momentum 2001) followed by the critically acclaimed Welcome to Diverse City (2004), which both releases received GRAMMY nominations, and most recently both were awarded RIAA Gold Certification last month. TobyMac is a founding member of the GRAMMY Award winning and best-selling group (over 8 million albums sold) in Christian music, dc talk. He is the founder of Gotee Records and co-founder of the E.R.A.C.E. Foundation (Eliminating Racism and Creating Equality) in Franklin, TN. Recently TobyMac was honored with the “Artist of the Year” nomination for the 38th Annual GMA Dove Awards, which will be held on April 25, 2007.
