The Church of the Annunciation, 7580 Clinton St., Elma, will host singer and songwriter Chris Wilson for a free concert featuring songs of faith, popular songs and a touch of Christmas at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9. A reception will follow the concert.
A New York native, Wilson has gained celebrity status for his vocally driven songwriting and passionate live performances. His career brought him to Los Angeles for an MTV show called “The Cut,” where he became one of only 10 artists to win their way to the finals from a field of 160 competitors and over 10,000 hopefuls from around the world. Wilson went on to win MTV’s Viewers Choice Award for his performance in the finals.
Wilson has received honors across the globe, included winning Best Male Vocalist and Best Overall Performance at the World Championships of the Performing Arts in Los Angeles. He has performed in front of hundreds of thousands of people from New York to Hong Kong, done soundtrack work with Director Dennis Dugan (Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy) in Hollywood, and continues to maintain a busy global touring schedule.
Wilson has also gained significant media exposure, appearing in and being interviewed by such publications as Billboard Magazine and the Los Angeles Times.
The Annunciation event is open to the public; a free will offering would be appreciated to help defray expenses.
