In Concert:
Adult contemporary Christian music artist Mark Schultz will be in concert March 4 at Fifteenth Avenue Baptist Church. The concert will begin at 6 p.m. and is free to the public. Special guest will be Ben Glover. Schultz, youth pastor for a Presbyterian church in Nashville, held the No. 1 position for several consecutive weeks on the Adult Contemporary Christian radio charts with "I Am the Way," the first single from his self-titled debut album. The song was the first debut single from a new artist to hit the top of the AC radio charts in 2000. The Nashville-based singer/songwriter's other releases from the album include "He's My Son," "Let's Go" and "Remember Me." For more information about the concert, call 485-4113.
Keith Sweat in concert March 3
Silver Star Hotel and Casino announces the return of R&B Superstar Keith Sweat live in concert, Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Silver Star Conference Center.
Keith has walked tall over the pop and R&B world for more than a decade, achieving the kind of success that only a handful of contemporary artists have attained. From his R&B smash album "Make It Last Forever" to his quadruple platinum, multi-award winning 1996 effort, "Keith Sweat," he has always been about taking chances. This multi-dimensional artist, who has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide, has now put his Midas touch to his newest album, appropriately titled "Still in the Game."
The Harlem-born singer credits his New York background with instilling in him a tremendous drive to succeed. Born around the corner from New York's famous Apollo Theater, Keith graduated from New York's City College, working on Wall Street before launching his singing career. "I remember those days," he laughs. "And I also remember some bumps and bruises along the way in my recording career. That's why I picked the title of the album "Still in the Game." I still enjoy it. The challenge now is to keep taking it to that next level."
