KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Thousands of people turning out to hear and see Joel and Victoria Osteen Friday night at Thompson-Boling Arena.

The crowd Friday filled most of the arena to listen to what the Osteens called "A Night of Hope." Attendees said it was a great opportunity to hear the couple speak.

"He gets you feeling better about yourself with the positive attitude. That's what we need in this country right now," said Sam Whited. He and his wife attended the show and said they got their tickets for Christmas.   

The Osteens are the pastors of Lakewood Church in Houston, where around 40,000 people attend to make it the largest church in America.        

Joel Osteen said he came to Knoxville because he has a good following here and he had never been here before.
