Festival to bring 'Joyful' Bowe


In a concert sure to electrify the faithful, the Florida Seafood Festival has turned to one of the most promising young artists making a name for himself in Christian music.

Dante Bowe, worship pastor at Addereth Church in Columbus, Georgia, will bring the sound of the Bethel Music and Maverick City Music collectives, and Elevation Worship, to the Battery Park stage on Friday, Nov. 5, on an evening the festival has long dedicated to a night of Christian musicianship.

The evening’s worship starts at 5 p.m. with The Gathering, and JD Music and Company, with Bowe taking the stage at 8 p.m.

“Dante is very popular on Christian radio and he leads songs with the three top Christian bands in the United States,” said Anthony Croom, the member of the festival’s all-volunteer board of directors who handled the selection.

“We chose Dante because he communicates a positive message through his ministry. With his new single ‘Joyful,’ we feel like our community could and would embrace that positive and encouraging message after all that our county has been through in the last few years,” Croom said. “We also wanted to give them the best in worship this year. and Dante Bowe’s music is one of the very best.

“If you tune in to any church, I assure you that you will hear music from either Elevation, Bethel or Maverick City Music,” he said.

Bowe's latest top songs "I Thank God,” "Anything Is Possible," and "Champion" have been popular hits on Christian radio.

In 2017, Bowe released his debut single, "Potter and Friend" featuring Jesse Cline, shortly followed with the independent release of his debut studio album, Son of a Father.

Bowe’s single "Champion" was followed by three standalone singles: "Don't Talk About It" featuring Jesse Cline, "Be Alright" featuring Amanda Lindsey Cook, and "Voice of God" featuring Steffany Gretzinger and Chandler Moore.

In 2021, he released his second studio album, Circles, which contained the hit single "Joyful" and which debuted at No. 7 on Billboard's Top Gospel Albums chart in the United States.

Bowe received three nominations for the 2021 GMA Dove Awards, being nominated for New Artist of the Year, Contemporary Gospel Recorded Song of the Year for "Joyful," and Gospel Worship Recorded Song of the Year for "Voice of God."
