  • This is a very special event.  I am excited to perform this concert that will feature a theatrical presentation of the songs of the album.  I hope it will be a very spiritual and moving experience.  Because of the technical elements of the performance I don’t know when the next time will be that I will be able to perform it again, so don’t miss it.  Please come!!

My apologies for not sending out a March newsletter!  As most of you know, I came down with bronchitis and, as a result, I had to cancel all of my scheduled concerts.  This was a very humbling and slightly embarrassing experience.  My apologies to those of you who were affected by the cancellations, and my thanks to those of you who expressed sympathy and helped me to remember that this may have all happened for a reason.  We have rescheduled most of the concerts and added a few more, so please check them out below, and I hope to see you there (ESPECIALLY at the “Prayer” release concert on May 15th)!

To catch up from my last newsletter – the “Phantom” run was wonderful and successful.  After returning home we instantly missed the beautiful weather and beaches of southern California.  In March my wife and I had the privilege to participate in the reenactment of the organization of the female Relief Society of the LDS Church as part of a Women’s Conference held in Nauvoo, Illinois.  Even though I was unable to perform the scheduled concert, it was a wonderful experience for us.  We love Nauvoo.  It’s like a second home for us.  We’re excited to return there this summer to participate in the Nauvoo Pageant.

Currently I am back in Los Angeles to perform in a short tour of the “Phantom” production.  We will be stopping in two cities here in southern California.  It’s great to be back, but I really look forward to returning home to perform in these upcoming concerts!

  • Ticket costs vary.  For tickets please visit: www.ticketmaster.com and www.theatricalarts.com

  • These are special concerts in the region where I grew up, including my small hometown of Green River, UT.  I’m very excited to perform in the place where it all started.

(This month everything’s NEW!)

We have updated the website’s “Events” page with the above concerts and performances.   Also, we are still interested in receiving feedback from people about the “Prayer” CD.

Yesterday I had a wonderful talk with a member of the “Phantom” cast who reminded me of the importance of always living the way we should.  She mentioned to me that she and others had been watching me during our last run of “Phantom” – observing the way I acted and interacted with others, and whether I lived my religion.  She reminded me that, “Even though your mindset may be that you’re just here to do your job, you should know that people are always watching you.”  Thankfully, what she observed in me was positive, and she told me that it had an impact on her.  She quoted the verse in the Bible that reads, “Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee” (1 Timothy 4:16).  I honestly wasn’t thinking about the fact that, as a Mormon, others would be watching to see how I behaved, and based on that they would draw conclusions about my religion.  It was very sobering.  “A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid” (3 Nephi 12:14 and Matthew 5:14) and so it behooves each of us to always “stand as witnesses of God at all times, and in all things and in all places that ye may be in” (Mosiah 18:9).  I pray that we may always be found doing so.

Thanks again for your support!  May God bless!
