OMAHA, Neb. (February 19, 2021) – Omaha Performing Arts announces “The Blessing USA Tour” comes to the Orpheum Theater with Kari Jobe featuring Cody Carnes on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30 PM.

Tickets starting at $29.50 go on sale at TicketOmaha.com on Friday, February 19 at 10 AM. There is limited seating capacity for social distancing and masks are required.

This performance is in conjunction with Premier Productions and sponsored by illumiNations and CovidSafeChurch.com.

For more than two decades, well-respected worship leader Jobe has been using her gifts to lead people into the presence of God. “The Blessing USA Tour” is named after Jobe's hit, “The Blessing.”

Written and released the week before the COVID pandemic hit the globe, Jobe co-wrote the "The Blessing" with her husband and songwriter Cody Carnes and Elevation Worship's Steven Furtick and Chris Brown.  The song was the most consumed new CCM song of the year in 2020 and also won Worship Song of the Year at last year's GMA Dove Awards.  Likewise, the track received a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for "The Blessing (Live).”

The safety of patrons, artists, volunteers and staff is O-pa’s top priority. Those attending performances will find safety changes at both the Orpheum and Holland, and O-pa will continue working with health officials as state and federal health guidelines evolve.
