TobyMac to perform at Papal Youth Rally

Yet another artist has been added to the roster of those performing at the papal youth rally (how many do we have now? 10? 15? 50?):

Marking his third performance at an event with a Pope, TobyMac has been confirmed as a performer at a Youth Rally on April 19th at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Yonkers, NY. ...

About being asked to perform before the Pope at the Rally, TobyMac commented, “It's an honor to participate in this Papal visit. Not too many artists are given this opportunity. We have great respect for the work he does.”

Kevin Michael "Toby" McKeehan -- aka. "TobyMac" -- formerly comprised one third of the popular CCM rap-group DC Talk, before launching his own solo career.
