As he celebrates his 40th birthday, Stellar Award-nominated Gospel recording artist Christopher Page has applied to the Guinness Book of World Records to break the record for the "Longest Gospel Line Dance Display." Christopher, along with some of his favorite line dance groups from across the country, will perform his Gospel Line Dance, dubbed the Sanctified Slide, 40 consecutive times. The event will take place in January 2011 in the Washington D.C. area.

Christopher, a spokesman for Donate Life America and the National Office of Transplantation, will use the event as a platform to encourage more African-Americans and Christians to commit to becoming organ donors. The event will include a workshop on organ donation and onsite organ donation registration. Christopher will also give appreciation gifts to every registered organ donor who attends the event.

Page's 2009 project "A Page From My Heart" was nominated for a Stellar Award. Over the past 10 years he has ministered across the United States. He has performed with Gospel artists including Kirk Franklin, Vanessa Williams, Dottie Peeples, Maurette Brown Clark, Trin-i-tee 5:7, and All-4-One. Recently, the group has been featured on Bobby Jones Gospel, the Word Network and the Gospel Music Workshop of America.
