For Skillet's fans, and fans of other recording artists like Lacey Sturm, Michael W. Smith, All  Sons and Daughters, Dennis Agajanian and Dae-Lee, the Good News Festival with Franklin Graham offers an opportunity to see musical favorites free in a concert-like setting. Spoken word poet Amena Brown will serve as host on both nights. 

The festival is set for 7 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22 and 4 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23. Doors open 90 minutes prior to the event's start each night.

The festival's musical lineup is a diverse mix of artists showcasing their talents.

Skillet, whose recent album is "Rise," is known for their rock music with a gospel message. Lacey Sturm, a singer-songwriter from Arlington, Texas, who was former lead singer for the group Flyleaf, also will be featured. Sturm said she has been in the recording studio recently to work on new music.

Worship duo All Sons and Daughters also will perform during the festival. Michael W. Smith, who took part in the memorial service marking the 20th anniversary of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing, will perform on Sunday. A choir made up of metro area residents will perform several selections with the recording artists.
