Award Winning Christian Recording Artist Jaci Velasquez to Perform at Lebanon Valley College
09.16.13 |
Christian artist Jaci Velasquez will perform at Lebanon Valley College's Miller Chapel on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. as part of the Chapel Concert Series. She will be accompanied by her husband, Nic Gonzales, lead singer of the acclaimed Nashville-based rock band Salvador. Tickets are $11 in advance, $15 at the door.

Velasquez's accomplishments in the music industry are exceptional. In the process of producing 17 albums, she has earned seven Dove Awards, 16 top radio hits, three RIAA Gold Records and three RIAA Platinum Records.

The Chapel Concert Series participates in a Hispanic Heritage Month celebration at Lebanon Valley College. Velasquez will perform her biggest hits as well as her newest songs, singing both in English and Spanish. Gonzales will sing and accompany her on the acoustic guitar. Opening for the concert is LVC student and Christian recording artist, singer, songwriter, and speaker on brain injury Cristabelle Braden.

"Jaci Velasquez was a household name when I served as a youth pastor in the 1990s," commented Paul Fullmer, Lebanon Valley College chaplain. "She has had an inspirational career ever since. We're looking forward to hosting her acoustic concert right here on campus." Unlike the stadium venues in which many concerts of this caliber are held, the intimate venue of Miller Chapel creates a personal atmosphere.

"Diamond" is Velasquez's 17th album (not including 'Best Of's' or compilations) and was released in February 2012, hitting the market with "Give Them Jesus" as the first radio single. "The Sound of Your Voice" followed as her second single off the record, and the track "Good Morning Sunshine" naturally progressed from a heartfelt tune into one of Velasquez's signature radio-aphorisms.

Following "Diamond" was the digital release of "Jaci Velasquez - Acoustic Favorites EP," organically showcasing seven of her biggest hits; Fisher Price released her brand new Spanish lullaby album titled "Buenas Noches Mi Sol" in September 2012.

Velasquez has been internationally active in a variety music industry niches since her emergence as a CCM Award Winning artist at the age of 16. These days, even as a multitasking singer, songwriter, actress, radio personality (Nashville 94FM), special event hostess, wife, and mother of two, her passion to serve God with her gifts remains at her core.

"Hispanic Heritage Month" (Sept. 15 – Oct. 15) is coordinated by faculty of LVC's Languages Department. The month will also feature special lectures, art exhibits, and films which are open to the community. Detailed information about the time and place of events will be provided to participants in a program handout.

The Chapel Concert Series will continue with Patrick Andy Band November 15. Tickets are $11 in advance, $15 at the door. Advance orders for groups of 10 people or more are $8 per person and church youth group tickets are $5 per student. Admission to the shows is free to LVC students with their college ID. For more information or to order tickets, contact LVC's Office of Spiritual Life at 717-867-6135 or by emailing Natalia Smith at nsmith@lvc.edu.
