The group was formed by lead vocalist Peter Furler with his school mate and guitarist George Perdikis, and originally went under the name News. Two years after the band formed, they moved to Nashville, Tennessee in the U.S. And changed their name to Newsboys to avoid confusion with Huey Lewis and the News. The group release its debut album, Read All About It, in 1988. Over the years, the band has released 17 studio albums, including six that have been certified gold, and over 30 number one singles on the Christian music charts. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Michael Tait (formerly of DC Talk), drummer and percussionist Duncan Phillips, keyboardist and bassist Jeff Frankenstein, and guitarist Jody Davis.
