Global Battle of the Bands contest includes Christian band from Malaysia

GBOB.jpgI came across this story in The Star online, about the Malaysian finals for the Global Battle of the Bands contest, which included a Christian rock band called Vessel of Worship.
This was the third of four qualifying heats held at the Carmen Club, Bayview Georgetown Hotel in Penang, Malaysia. The results were determined by live audience voting and a panel of judges, and the story cites Vessels of Worship as the crowd favorite. The national finals will be held on November 13 at Planet Hollywood in Kuala Lumpur.
The GBOB contest included local heats from all around the world, and the finals feature bands from Croatia, Serbia, Germany, Malaysia, Pakistan and everywhere else you can think of. I thought it was worth noting that a Christian band from Malaysia made the finals; I’m always intrigued by how Christian music fits into the mainstream music scene in other parts of the world. The US is one of the few places where we separate Christian and mainstream music into their own communities.
The GBOB world finals are scheduled for December 14 and 15 in London. The winner gets a $100,000 prize, a statuette, and worldwide promotion.
There are two local qualifying heats left in the US, on October 20 in Anaheim, California and October 23 in Covington, Kentucky. You can get complete details at the Global Battle of the Bands website.
