David Phelps, a multi-Dove and Grammy Award-winning recording artist, will bring his unmistakable sound to Lufkin Baptist Church in a concert at 6 p.m. July 22.
Once a childhood musical prodigy from Tomball, Phelps earned a bachelor’s degree in music from Baylor University. Since then, he has become a nationally celebrated vocalist, whose gifts and talents are matched by none. Perhaps best known as the powerful tenor for the multiple Grammy and Dove Award-winning Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps continues to constantly build on a career that has already been groundbreaking. Emerging as a leading voice in Christian music, Phelps has been winning the hearts of audiences all over the world for more than two decades. He has performed in numerous prestigious venues across the globe, including the White House, New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
This 2023 “After the Downbeat” tour stop featuring Phelps and his musical entourage will feature songs from more than a dozen multi-award winning recordings he has to his credit. His seemingly endless vocal range, which extends more than three octaves, coupled with his gift for communicating a song, moves audiences from all walks of life, crossing generational and stylistic barriers.
Any music lover, regardless of musical preference, will not want to miss this special evening of worship and celebration at First Baptist Church, located at 106 East Bremond in Lufkin. Event information may be obtained by visiting www.davidphelps.com or www.itickets.com or by calling 936-634-3386.
