Burnett, Downey take 'The Bible' music on road

(Associated Press) Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s “The Bible” franchise continues to grow in unexpected ways. Up next? A 16-city music tour featuring some of today’s most popular Christian acts.

The tour begins next March following the nationwide theatrical release of “The Bible” companion film “Son of God,” and will feature music inspired by and visual components from the movie and miniseries.

“I think that music just has such a wonderful ability to connect and open your heart and the images from our film certainly are going to touch your heart,” Downey said. “So I think it’s just going to be a really beautiful, heartfelt experience all around for people to attend.”
