(Nashville, Tennessee) February 16, 2001-
During their stay in Canada, V*Enna took part in a sold out tubing night at a ski resort in Barrie hosted by radio station Life 100.3 FM. While hundreds tubed, the girls taped an entire week of episodes of Canadian television show East To West, which will be seen across Canada and the United States on cable and satellite in February. In addition, V*Enna was also featured on Much Music, which is Canada's version of MTV, and also taped two songs for 100 Huntley Street, Canada's National Christian television show, that reaches over 1.5 million people a week.
"This tour was such an encouragement to us," said Britten. "Our vision became solid, and suddenly what we have been talking and praying about is happening. It became real to us."
Sharnessa also shared, "We had kids of all ages and parents coming up to us and thanking us for not compromising our faith and being good examples. It was such a humbling experience. Lives were changed and challenged and that is what is most important."
Currently, V*Enna is a part of Phil Joel's Strangely Normal Tour which will be hitting cities including Chicago, Minneapolis, Houston, Dallas, and Los Angeles. For a full tour schedule and further information on V*Enna, please visit www.v-enna.com or www.essentialrecords.com.
