Huge New Answers Center at the Ark Welcomes Popular Gospel Singer
WILLIAMSTOWN, Kentucky (August 23, 2019) â€“ The impressive new 2,500-seat Answers Center at the Ark Encounter Christian themed attraction will play host to Grammy award-winning Christian music vocalist Jason Crabb, Sept. 17 and 18, 2019, at 6 p.m. The high-tech center in Williamstown, Kentucky (south of Cincinnati), opened in April, and features excellent acoustics and a stunning 70-foot-long LED screen, which will enhance Crabbâ€™s stage performance.
Crabb has been awarded two Grammys: in 2018 for his latest project, Unexpected, and in 2009 for his debut record. He has also been honored with 22 Dove Awards by the Gospel Music Association, including â€œArtist of the Year,â€ â€œMale Vocalist of the Year,â€ and â€œSong of the Year.â€ He will be performing with a band at the Answers Center.
For Crabb, coming to the Ark is something of a homecoming. He is originally from Kentucky. Crabb has performed on many of the worldâ€™s most prestigious stages, such as Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, and during Billy Grahamâ€™s final crusade in New York City. His videos on-line have received over 20 million views, and his powerhouse vocals have endeared him to fans around the world.
Crabb, who toured the full-size Ark recently, stated: â€œThe Ark and Answers Center are amazing and state of the art. The Center has a great sound. I canâ€™t wait to sing in this wonderful new venue.â€
Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis and the Ark Encounter said, â€œAs a big fan of gospel music, I appreciate Jasonâ€™s music and message. He is known for an electrifying stage presence and powerful vocals as he sings praises to our God. What a great fit to have Jason, a Kentuckian and Bible-believer, perform at the Ark.â€
Tickets for both performances are on sale now and range from $8.50 to $20.50, with a VIP pass offered that includes special seating and a meet and greet with Crabb and Ham. Seats are available at www.ArkEncounter.com/jasoncrabb.
Concert attendees can come early and tour the Ark and its beautiful grounds and newly expanded zoo, purchase a buffet dinner at Emzaraâ€™s Restaurant (which draws rave reviews from guests) , and then sit back and enjoy the 6 p.m. concert. Discount Ark Encounter admission is available for concert ticket holders: adults can purchase an Ark ticket for $39.95 (an $8 discount) when they present their concert ticket at the ticket window.

Answers in Genesis is an apologetics (i.e., Bible-defending) ministry based in northern Kentucky, near Cincinnati. In 2016, AiG opened the Ark Encounter, with a massive Noahâ€™s Ark as its centerpiece, sometimes drawing 8,000-9,000 guests a day. The Creation Museum, 45 minutes away, has welcomed over 4 million visitors and has also become a major family attraction in the Midwest. For more information, visit www.answersingenesis.org.
