Shawn McDonald April 10th at William Jessup University
ROCKLIN, Calif., - William Jessup University's student government will present their first annual benefit concert featuring Contemporary Christian Music artist, Shawn McDonald on Wednesday, April 10 beginning at 7 p.m. at the growing university.
Proceeds will benefit WJU missions teams who will be going to Cambodia, Romania, Brazil and Kenya this summer.
McDonald, is a well-known singer, songwriter and guitarist. As he approaches the ten-year mark of his extraordinary career, he stands at the crossroads of reflection and anticipation. To mark this unique period, he recently (March 22, 2013) released his newest project, The Analog Sessions, a collection split between nine re-recorded hits and fan favorites, plus two entirely new tunes.
McDonald's past has been marked by a string of heartaches, bad breaks, and personal mistakes, events that have landed him both in trouble with the law and in love with the Lord - in that order. The street-tough but tenderhearted McDonald has never shied away from telling his story - of growing up in Eugene, Oregon, as an angry, rebellious teen who was a drug addict and a dealer, looking for any and every way to escape his pain and a dysfunctional home. In 1998, at just 20 years old and at the end of his rope - and facing nine felony counts on a drug bust - McDonald cried out to God...and started turning his life around. He hasn't looked back since.
Also appearing with McDonald are I Am They and Like Zion.
General admission tickets are also available at the door for $15.
