Wet ‘n Wild Announces 2015 Waves of Glory Lineup with Two Headlining Acts, Plumb and Tim Timmons.

Enjoy a full day of uplifting and inspiring Christian Music with Live performances during the Battle of the Bands Competition.

Modern Christian Rock artist Plumb and Contemporary Christian artist Tim Timmons will perform live in concert at Wet ‘n Wild Orlando’s Annual Waves of Glory on Saturday, May 2, 2015 in partnership with Z88.3.

This year’s event features eight artists competing during a Battle of the Bands competition followed by a show-stopping performance by Tim Timmons who will perform tracks from his studio album “Cast my Cares.” Closing out the night DOVE nominated artist Plumb who has sold more than 500,000 albums and over two million singles worldwide will perform tracks like “Need You Now” and “Drifting” along with other fan favorites.

“I am so excited to be a part of Waves of Glory, especially as this event is just a few days before my new album “Exhale” releases. This will be a perfect way to kick off the new album. I’m excited to share new music – and sunscreen – with everyone in Orlando,” said Plumb.

During the Waves of Glory’s signature Battle of the Bands competition, emerging artists in Christian rock, worship and rap help celebrate a day of fun, faith and fellowship as part of a high-powered, musical face-off. Musicians will be competing to win two thousand dollars in cash prizes for production and charitable donations as well as the chance to perform this September at Universal Studios’ Rock the Universe, Florida’s largest Christian music festival.

Waves of Glory is free with park admission. The Battle of the Bands competition begins at 11:00AM, with headlining concerts starting at 3:30PM at the Beach Club Stage.
