Thousands attend what was billed as a "mega gospel event" music show in downtown Rio de Janeiro, Saturday, Dec. 10, 2011. Brazilian media giant Globo, long considered Catholic-leaning, usually ignored evangelical events and news but finally seems to have embraced the nation's rapidly expanding evangelical movement. Globo outwardly promoted, televised, recorded and even handled the credential processing for the event, which drew some 50,000 people. (Austalfoto/Douglas Engle)
