EAU CLAIRE — Grammy-nominated BEC Recordings artist Jeremy Camp will perform Oct. 15 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Part of Camp's fall headline tour — The Worship Tour — the concert will begin at 7 p.m. in Zorn Arena. Integrity worship artists Carlos Whittaker and John Mark McMillan are special guests.

"With strong vocals and a powerful stage presence, Camp earned a reputation as Christian music's premier rocker," wrote Billboard magazine, reporting on Camp's return to his music roots on his 2010 album, "We Cry Out: The Worship Project." Released Aug. 24, the CD quickly went to No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart, and No. 15 on the Billboard 200.

Twice nominated for American Music Awards, Camp has established himself with these landmark accolades: four Recording Industry Association of American gold-selling studio albums; one RIAA multi-platinum long-form video; 19 No. 1 radio hits; a Grammy Award nomination for his album "Speaking Louder than Words" (2008); Billboard's No. 3 Christian Artist of the Decade, including five songs in the Top 50 Billboard Christian Songs of the Decade; three ASCAP Songwriter of the Year awards; an ASCAP Song of the Year award; and five Dove awards, including two-time Male Vocalist of the Year awards.

Carlos Whittaker is a worship leader, speaker, pastor and creative coach who also serves as an adviser for major conferences, including Catalyst and Saddleback. He is perhaps best-known for his RagamuffinSoul.com blog, which is followed by more than 20,000 and was ranked Best Ministry/Theology Blog by readers of Collide magazine. His debut CD is "Ragamuffin Soul" (2010).

Singer-songwriter John Mark McMillan is known for his unconventional approach to worship music. Writer of the popular anthem "How He Loves," McMillan sets his lyrical imagery against what critics have called "spiritually-minded indie rock." His fan base continues to grow among Christian, worship and indie/alt rock fans with his latest CD, "The Medicine" (2010).

The show is presented by Echo Ministries and hosted by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.

Tickets are available online at www.echoconcerts.com or by phone at 877-840-0457, priced at $10, $15, $25 and $35. Tickets are $10 for UW-Eau Claire students at the Service Center in the east lobby of Davies Center (walk-up sales only) and will be sold at the door.
