Launches 24-hour social media campaign promoting new single 'Everything I Need'

Singer/songwriter and Fair Trade Services artist John Tibbs performed this past weekend at the Indianapolis 500. He was the special guest of IndyCar Ministry, an organization dedicated to providing spiritual support and counseling to the IndyCar Series drivers, teams and staff, both on and off the track. 

Prior to the big race held on Sunday, Tibbs sang at four private chapels held for drivers, crew and their families, as well as at the public chapel held onstage in the infield fan zone. The public chapel was sponsored by IndyCar Ministry, K-LOVE and Cooper Tires.

Tibbs was also part of the VIP breakfast, featuring Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and the Indy 500 Parade, both held on Saturday. The parade, which ran through downtown Indianapolis, was celebrated with 300,000 people lining the streets, while more than a million watched on TV. Tibbs was also able to enjoy the race with his wife, Emily, as they joined the sell-out crowd of more than 350,000 people to watch the 100th running of the Indy 500.

Beginning today, Tibbs is launching a 24-hour campaign via his social media, including a Facebook Live video, to promote his new radio single "Everything I Need." The song, already gaining momentum at radio with multiple stations on board, can be downloaded for free by visiting his socials or by texting JohnTibbs to 444-999 by tomorrow, June 2, at 11 a.m. ET. 

"Everything I Need" is the follow-up to the first single from his debut album with Fair Trade Services, "Dead Man Walking," which broke through the Top 20 on the Christian AC charts.

Just wrapping a 20-city tour with Matt Maher, Tibbs can be seen performing at various summer dates with Casting Crowns, Hawk Nelson and Newsboys, along with appearing at multiple festivals and camps.

Tibbs' Fair Trade Services debut, "Dead Man Walking," released in February to critical acclaim. Produced by Ben Shive (Rend Collective, Colony House), the project showcases 10 selections, including the soulful title track, which features Ellie Holcomb. 

Prior to signing with Fair Trade, Tibbs was a worship leader at Madison Park Church, near Indiana's Anderson University. As an independent artist, he amassed an online community of more than 100,000 fans who helped crowd-fund two breakout recordings: "Swallowing Death, Breathing Life" in 2012 as well as 2013's "Anchor."
