Normally Washington Capitals Hockey fans or Washington Wizards Basketball fans pack themselves into Capital One Arena in downtown Washington D.C., but on a recent night, it was Christian music fans filling up every seat of the arena. Over 13,500 WGTS listeners sang along with every song on the Unity Tour featuring Hillsong Worship, Casting Crowns and Elevation Worship.
“I've been to many sporting events in D.C., but to see all of Capital One Arena filled with people praising Jesus was something that still gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. It was an incredible night to be a part of,” said WGTS Midday Show Host Becky Alignay.
