Show supports food bank

Enjoy a night of music while supporting the Salvation Army Food Bank this Saturday

Enjoy a night of music while supporting the Salvation Army Food Bank this Saturday when Abe Zacharias, Dianne Wirtz and Billy Chernoff, three of Canada’s country/western and gospel talents, perform here.

A Christian country/western and gospel singer-songwriter for over 35 years, Zacharias has recorded 13 albums, won numerous music awards, made many stage appearances including the Grand Ole Opry in 1993.

In 1997, he became a member of the Country Gospel Music Association, and was awarded the prestigious Golden Heart Award for male vocalist for the U.S. and Canada. In 1998, 1999 and 2000 he claimed the association’s Silver Crown Award.

Also taking to the stage, Wirtz is an award-winning country and gospel artist whose latest CD, I’m Your Child, has generated airplay in Canada, the U.S. and Europe.

A resident of Kelowna, Wirtz won the New Christian Music Radio Mike Award for World Radio and has been nominated for the Gospel Music Association of Canada’s Covenant Award for Album of the Year and in the top 10 for the Juno Award’s Album of the Year.

A renowned singer-songwriter, Chernoff has spent many years in Nashville performing and writing music.

His music has been described as asphalt western, invoking images of the west in songs about cowboys, outlaws and banditos.

The concert runs Saturday at 7 p.m. at First United Church. Tickets are $15 at the door. Take a non-perishable food item for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
