|Petersen to perform gospel concert Sat.|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Gospel singer John Petersen is set to perform a concert, hosted by First Christian Church of Holyoke, Saturday, Aug. 15 at 6 p.m. at City Park.
Petersen, of Tilden, Neb., has chosen to use his vocal ability by traveling full-time as a gospel singer and evangelist throughout the United States and wherever he is invited to share. The concert will be comprised of many styles of music, including hymns, southern gospel, country gospel, contemporary gospel and patriotic songs.
Performing at churches, nursing homes, banquets, fairs, school assemblies and concert halls, Petersen’s programs are inspiring and entertaining. He started participating in concerts with his family as a very young boy, and having developed a rich baritone voice, he is considered a heart singer, singing from the depths of his soul. Petersen accompanies himself with the piano, guitar, banjo and other instruments for various selections.
He has spent time in Kingston, Jamaica, singing and preaching with his brother, Tim Petersen, and has even sang as a featured guest on a cruise to the Bahamas. More recently, Petersen sang and played keyboard with a gospel band galled GIG (God is Great), in the northeast Nebraska/South Dakota area.
Recordings will be available at the concert, and a love offering accepted.
