SALVATION ARMY ANNOUNCES THE LINE UP FOR THE 24TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS FAMILY FEAST
Event to Showcase Local Talent Including National Recording Artist Cincere
WAUWATOSA, WI. — (December 24, 2013) The 24th Annual Christmas Family Feast, brought to you by The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County, not only boasts a delicious home style meal, and a volunteer choir, the event also boasts a stellar line up of hometown talent that will thrill the Feast diners on Christmas Day at the Wisconsin Center District, 4th & Wisconsin from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Each of our stars for the day has donated their gift of song. Starting things off will be the lovely Stephanie Brill whose list of honors is quite impressive for a young lady who has yet to celebrate her 16th birthday. Stephanie has been recognized by WAMI, MAMA and WSSS. Lots of initials but it all spells one thing - she's good!
Returning this year is a crowd favorite, Robin Adkins, the big bass voice of the Tempters. Robin goes solo again this year to bring us the songs of the season recreating the sounds that make Christmastime so special. Songs originally performed by Nat King Cole and the Temptations highlight Robin's performance.
Always a showstopper, the MPS Homeless Choir led by Milwaukee music legend, Arlene Skwierawski and the ever energetic K.C. Williams. This choir has been a welcome part of the Christmas Family Feast for a many years and this year promises to be simply wonderful.
Pianist Eric Look is an amazing musician. At three years old he was diagnosed with Autism. But that didn't stop him. Eric has performed at many local venues in the area including the Pfister Hotel, Mitchell Park Domes and the Country Springs Hotel. He has worked in studio on original music and won awards for his work. We invite you to join in and sing along with this young talented musician.
Bringing the day to a rousing close is none other than Milwaukee recording artist Cincere. We are extremely happy to have this extraordinary singer join us to ring in the season. Cincere is well known for his R&B songs, he's sure to captivate the audience with his rendition of the Christmas classics.
"This 24th Christmas Family Feast will be one of the most exciting yet. We're so happy to have the line up of artist contributing to the spirit of the day. Each of them, in their own way, will help us celebrate the season, adding special ingredients to the day's menu. We thank them all," said Major Dan Jennings, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Wisconsin & Upper Michigan.
Christmas Family Feast is free and open to the public.
