Singer David Phelps to play classics during performance
By Sophie Pappas
Covering everything from Dolly Parton to Luciano Pavarotti, singer David Phelps is bringing his soulful tune to the Zionsville Performing Arts Center on March 20.
Hailing from Texas, Phelps studied classical music at Baylor University and now calls a farm in Nashville, Tenn., home.
“My style is very eclectic,” Phelps said. “I’m a little hard to pin down.”
Phelps said he doesn’t put his music under one genre, because he loves to sing Gospel, country, adult contemporary, and classical.
He is currently on tour promoting his latest album, Classic, released in 2012.
“Everything in the show is family oriented,” Phelps said.
Celebrated as the tenor in the Grammy-award-winning Gaither Vocal Band, Phelps said he is most well-known for his unique vocal style and ability to sing in high tessitura for a long time.
Phelps’ Classic album allowed him the opportunity to work on his first solo project with close friend and mentor, Bill Gaither. The song selection for the album took more than a year, and brought Phelps immense joy.
“It was a great confidence builder that Bill put so much trust in me,” Phelps said.
With the accompaniment provided by a full band and background vocalists, the Classic in Concert show will allow Phelps to perform a variety of traditional favorites, such as “He’s Alive,” “No More Pain,” “What a Wonderful World,” and more.
Tickets to the show are $20 for general admission, $25 for gold circle admission, and $18 per person for a group of 10 people or more. Tickets can be purchased at the Family Christian Bookstore in Carmel or online at www.davidphelps.com. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
