The rumors are no longer rumors, but is this what the fans want? Speaking as one, I'm not sure...
Rumors have plagued the internet for years, the return of dc Talk. I'm going to do something dangerous, and share just how much I am a fan of dc Talk. I was introduced to them in 1991 while working at a week long summer camp. Immediately I was hooked. From then till now I have been a huge dc Talk fan. I been to multiple concerts. I have every album. I have a signed t-shirt and poster. I've even had the opportunity to meet Tobymac and write a bible study for J-Train, that was published nationally by Forefront Records. The only thing that comes close my love for dc Talk is my love for Star Wars. So of course when I hear a rumor of a return, I check it out to see if there is any truth.
Last week someone mentioned to me about a rumor they had heard about a reunion. I brushed it off saying that there are always rumors of a reunion. But then I saw something on social media that had a little more validity than most rumors. But i had to wait until today to found out if there was any truth.
At noon, the news was released and the rumors are no longer rumors. If you've missed the announcement, I've included the video below. (If the video doesn't fire, click on the link below it to view it on YouTube.com.)
Not the announcement I was expecting. I was expecting the announcement of a new album, a killer tour, or even a special project, but a cruise?
Now full details haven't been released, so I don't want to jump to too many conclusions, but I'm not sure a cruise is what most dc Talk fans are looking for.
I hoping more information comes soon. And I hope we get to hear some new music from Toby, Michael and Kevin. 16 years is too long to have to wait. But I guess we don't have a choice.
What do you think? dc Talk. Are you a fan? What do you think about a cruise?
