John Berry concerts due in West Point, Mathews

Arts Alive Inc. is excited to announce their upcoming performance by John Berry on Saturday, March 22. Mention his name to just about any country music lover and the response will likely be, “What an awesome vocalist!” said an Arts Alive spokesperson.
Berry recorded and marketed six albums on his own Clear Sky Records label. His regional popularity and those early discs eventually attracted him attention on Music Row. Capitol Records signed him in 1992 and it was then that he had a string of hits including “I Think About It All The Time,” “Change My Mind,” “Kiss Me In The Car,” “What’s In It For Me,” and the #1 Grammy-nominated single “Your Love Amazes Me.” In 1995 he received the Horizon Award and a nomination for Top Male Vocalist by CMA. But it was his stunning performance of the title track of the 1995 CD “O Holy Night” that led to his most enduring legacy. Using his tenor voice as a spiritual tool, Berry is a moving, inspiring performer that has the power to touch the hearts of both his loyal fans and newest concert-goers.
The show starts at 7 p.m. in the Robinson/Olsson Civic Auditorium in West Point. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors (65 and over), and $10 for students.
