CEDARVILLE — The Life Resource Centre is thrilled to welcome back country music star Collin Raye to perform in the DeVries Theatre at Cedarville University 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14.
Tickets can purchased at iTickets.com or information about the concert can be learned by calling the Life Resource Centre at 937-461-3625. Raye’s lyrics are relatable and filled with heart, accompanied by rich, full vocals destined to create an unforgettable concert that everyone can enjoy.
Some of Raye’s biggest hits include “Love, Me,” “One Boy, One Girl,” and “In This Life.” More hits can be found on Raye’s new album released in December of 2013. The album is a tribute to Glen Campbell called “Still on the Line” where Raye’s original style is mixed in with some of Campbell’s old favorites.
Collin Raye’s autobiography, A Voice Undefeated, is scheduled to hit the shelves in March of 2014. Raye is a passionate advocate for those in need, promoting and raising funds for charities including The Haley Bell Blessed Chair Foundation, Boys’ Town, Al-Anon, Catholic Relief Services, Childhelp USA, Silent Witness National Initiative, Easter Seals, and The Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network. Raye was presented the Humanitarian of the Year award at the 2001 Country Radio Seminar for his tireless efforts to better the world.
In addition to his traditional country concerts, Raye continues to expand his music into the Catholic Christian sector including appearances at Pro-Life dinners, conferences, and church concerts. Raye’s public commitment to protecting the most vulnerable among us makes him a perfect fit for this year’s Life Resource Centre’s Concert for Life.
