Former God's Property member Jontez is currently traveling the globe as part of a USO Tour organized by AFE (Armed Forces Entertainment). The tour kicked off in Alaska on June 16th and will take Jontez to military bases in Guam, Japan and South Korea before wrapping up on the 18th of July. Jontez is touring in support of his solo debut And So It Is..., which was released by Lightyear Entertainment (WEA and Word Distribution) in October. A child prodigy at 12, Jontez received regional acclaim via a ministry-focused Tejano band before finding himself in a worship leadership position at Bishop T.D. Jakes’ Potter’s House. As part of the multi-platinum group God’s Property, Jontez has had the opportunity to share the stage with the likes of Erykah Badu, Amy Grant, Jaci Velasquez and Point of Grace. Since releasing his debut last fall, Jontez hit the road with Shoutfest, performing in cities nationwide alongside popular Christian acts like Jump5, ZOEgirl, Skillet, KJ-52, Disciple, Krystal Meyers and others. He also toured with Rachael Lampa, Bryan Duncan, Martha Munizzi, Kurt Carr and Heather Powers for December's Joy to the World Christmas Celebration tour.

band touring an average of 200 dates a year, with appearances at Teen
Mania's Acquire The Fire youth conferences, Promise Keepers events as
well as Billy Graham and Franklin Graham Crusades. Salvador now has
six records to its credit, including the Spanish-language album Con
