STARFIELD TOP WINNER AT GMA CANADA 2008 COVENANT AWARDSStarfield gained strong momentum, achieving its best radio success, album sales and touring season in the band�s six-year history with its last project Beauty in the Broken. Then inspired by its home congregation, Starfield began to write new songs of substance and style. The substance became the theme and title of the album, I Will Go. The project has made Starfield�s musical mission very clear. The band now brings an intentional message that encourages the listeners to help a hurting world. Currently Starfield is headlining its first U.S. tour, the �I Will Go� Tour, visiting more than 20 cities through mid-November.
