Dear Media,

With three consecutive RIAA Gold records, five GRAMMY® awards, sell out tours and non-stop radio hits, TOBY MAC has hit yet another career milestone with his fourth solo effort, TONIGHT , giving him the highest solo career debut in his career.  Selling over 78,000 units, TONIGHT entered the BILLBOARD TOP 200 at No. 6 as well as No.3 on overall Current Digital Albums chart, amongst acts like Lady GaGa and the Black Eyed Peas.  Already critically acclaimed and having garnered the GRAMMY® nominated No. 1 Billboard single “City On Our Knees” -- the fastest charting and selling track in his career with over 225,000 downloads -- TobyMac’s digital sales were equally significant, with TONIGHT peaking at No. 2 on the iTunes® overall sales chart.

Says BILLBOARD  -- This five-time Grammy winner always delivers sonically inventive and lyrically substantive music that appeals to a wide fan base. TobyMac never fails to make music that stimulates the mind, nourishes the soul and makes you want to dance—all at the same time.”

Says USA TODAY -- “From his days with dc Talk, TobyMac has used his music to proclaim a message of diversity…on his fourth solo album, he lets his music do the talking, as guests ranging from Israel Houghton to Skillet’s John Cooper and Relient K's Matt Thiessen join him as he careens from R&B-infused rock to reggae to Auto-Tuned pop.”  

Says THE WASHINGTON POST -- “TobyMac is a gifted melodicist -- there may be no contemporary Christian rocker better at writing hooks.”

TOBY MAC recently donated 100% of his artist royalties from iTunes® week long preview of “Get Back Up,” his new single debuting March 5th, to the devastation in Haiti.  Proceeds will be divided up amongst the Hands and Feet Organization, Restore Haiti, and Compassion International.  Known for spreading his “Diversity” cause to unite people from all walks of life - he is also currently on the 20-city AWAKE TONIGHT tour co-headlining with popular rockers Skillet, which kicked off March 4 in Aurora, IL.  For more information on the AWAKE TONIGHT tour and for the latest news and information on TobyMac please go to www.tobymac.com.

We hope you enjoy TONIGHT.

All the best,
