Godfrey, Ill. – Lewis and Clark Community College and the Madison County Urban League will host local Emmy Award winning vocalist and percussionist Charles Glenn in concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4 in the Benjamin Godfrey Memorial Chapel.
From jazz, to rock to gospel, Glenn’s unique talent has led him in many diverse directions. He has opened for such nationally-acclaimed acts as Smokey Robinson, Huey Lewis and the News and the Allman Brothers, and has worked and performed with Andre Crouch and Stellar Award winner Calvin Bridges.
Glenn has had the distinct honor of singing the national anthem for the St. Louis Rams, the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues, and was selected to sing the national anthem for both nationally-televised Corey Spinks fights. He also finds the time in his busy schedule to volunteer and contribute to local schools’ music and performing arts programs along with teaching and performing at gospel workshops in Hamburg and Ahrenburg, Germany.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the pre-show, which will include live jazz, hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. Glenn will take the stage at 8 p.m. for an evening of unforgettable music and talent.
Admission is free and, as always, the public is welcome. For more information on this event, call the Music Department at (618) 468-4731.
