The past week thousands of Christian music fans attended Kingdom Bound - NY state's largest Christian music festival. Featuring over 50 artists and located at Darien Lake Amusement and Water Park, the event offered something for everyone, but one moment stood out among the rest.
On Saturday Night Peter Furler joined his former Newsboys bandmates as a guest vocalist for a live performance of the song "The Cross Has The Final Word".
