Bittersweet moment for Newsboys

Alas... it's true. Peter Furler has officially stepped down from the Newsboys *Soft music plays and the hankies come out- SNIFF* Peter Furler performed his last concert Saturday, September 12th at Disney's Night of Joy.

Here's the story as told by Today's Christian Music:

"September 12th, Jesusfreakhideout.com attended Disney's "Night Of Joy" in Orlando, FL, where Newsboys headlined the Magic Hat Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park on Saturday. While the band performed two back-to-back sets, former Newsboys frontman Peter Furler joined new vocalist Michael Tait on stage both times to perform their hit "Breakfast" with the band.
During the second and last performance of the night, Furler announced that this would be his final appearance with the Newsboys. When it came time to introduce the band members during the song, Tait insisted Furler have the honors. The pair hammed it up quite a bit for what would be a rousing bow for the Aussie singer. It was certainly a bittersweet moment!"

    I remember when my sister first told me that Peter Furler was being replaced by Michael Tait. I absolutely did not believe her. I thought for sure that she had gotten mixed up! lol.
