Dove Award-winning vocal trio Selah joined GRAMMY®-winning Amy Grant in Nashville earlier this week for Lipscomb University’s 18th annual Lighting of the Green. Presented by FirstBank and hosted each year by Grant, the event also featured GRAMMY®-winning dc Talk founding member and Newsboys frontman Michael Tait, along with various choirs and vocal ensembles from Lipscomb University and Lipscomb Academy. 
Heralding the season for Lipscomb students, staff and the Nashville community, Lighting of the Green is a longstanding Christmas tradition spotlighting performances from some of Music City’s biggest names. During the event, Selah took the stage at Lipscomb’s Allen Arena to share their signature rendition of “Light of the Stable” as well as a stirring acoustic performance of “At This Table,” the group’s latest single.  
The renowned trio also kicked off their “Christmas with Selah” Tour this week with a sold-out hometown show in Franklin, Tennessee. Featuring special guest singer/songwriter Natalie Layne, the tour showcases selections from Selah’s two acclaimed holiday recordings—2002’s Rose of Bethlehem (Curb) and the recently released At This Table: A Christmas Album (3Cre8tive). The “Christmas with Selah” Tour is slated to make stops in Pittsburgh; Lakeland, Florida; and Davenport, Iowa, among other cities, before concluding December 17 in Chicago.
