The largest annual concert tour in Christian music will be making a stop in Tampa.

The Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, headlined by Grammy-winning Christian rapper TobyMac, will return to the Forum on Jan. 12.

Along with the multi-platinum selling TobyMac, the tour will feature performances from RED, Matthew West, Jamie Grace, Sidewalk Prophets and Royal Tailor, among others.

The yearly showcase of Christian music stars enters its 18th year with the 2013 tour. In that time the Winter Jam has grown into one of best-attended musical events of the year, selling out 32 shows and playing to more than 530,000 people during its 2012 run.

Admission to the Tampa concert will be $10, paid at the door. No advance tickets will be sold.

TobyMac has sold more than 11 million albums since beginning his career in 1987 as a member of the Christian rock and hip-hop trio DC Talk. His sixth full-length album, August's "Eye On It," debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard chart - the first Christian album to do so in more than two decades.
