NEW YORK—Joining the ranks of some of today’s biggest artists, Christian music supergroup Newsboys United is set to headline FOX and Friends’ “All-American Summer Concert Series” next Friday, August 16. Throughout the top-rated cable morning show’s live broadcast, Newsboys United will take the stage outside FOX News headquarters in New York to deliver a string of hits from their unparalleled three-decade career.
The star-studded “All-American Summer Concert Series” has showcased such artists as the Charlie Daniels Band, Skillet, Big & Rich, Gavin DeGraw and Justin Moore, among others, to date this year.
