The Agape Farm in Mount Union, Pennsylvania was the scene last weekend of one of the largest Christian music festivals in the U.S , the Creation 2011 Northeast. Artists from Toby Mac, to Owl City and Francesca Batelli performed.

But the festival was a huge deal for the pop band CoastalRise, who picked up an award for best Best Indie Performer.

The group says they are a "passionate, soul-driven musical arrangement," and they sing about their strong Christian faith, in songs like "Judgment Day" and "Soul Power."
