PAC Performance Review – Michael W. Smith

(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – A dedication to the Christmas spirit…

The Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas was full of Christmas spirit this year! A full lineup of festive performances dominated the PAC stage the last few weeks with the final pre-Christmas show taking place just days before Santa came to town!

On Friday, December 21st, the PAC welcomed Michael W. Smith to Tuscarawas County. “For me, though, music is always my first creative outlet,” explained Smith. “Forever, until the world ends, music is the most powerful language there is. It can transform your life on every level, not just the spiritual. It can help people reconnect with why they’re here.”

The Multi-Platinum artist, best-selling author, and acclaimed actor continues to live out his dream he releases new music regularly and performs around the world to sold-out crowds of loyal and inspired fans. During Michael’s storied career, he’s not only been honored with three Grammy Awards, 45 Dove Awards, an American Music Award and has sold more than 15 million albums, he’s also given back to the global community.

Michael has raised funds to battle AIDS in Africa alongside longtime friend Bono, started Rocketown, a safe haven for young people in Tennessee to meet and find hope, and has helped more than 70,000 children’s lives through Compassion International.

Newsymom Author, Rebecca Marchino, had the opportunity to see this performer in action! Check out her review of the show!

The next show we’ll review on Newsymom.com is Jon Reep & Etta May. But, of course, you’re always encouraged to witness one of the many shows at this local venue for yourself!
