Tribute to Elvis to take place next weekend on Pine Island
Elvis will be “in the building” next weekend when Jesus Christ Ministries on Pine Island will host a special concert to honor the King. Beginning at 7 p.m., award-winning vocalist Mark Shelton will present “At the Gates of Graceland” featuring at tribute to the gospel music of Elvis Presley.
Hailing originally from Vermont, Shelton recorded and released his first CD “Radical” in 2002 followed by his second CD “Tribal Nation” with several of his songs played regularly on Christian radio stations and on Internet sites throughout the United States and Canada, as well as 154 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.
A co-founder of of the International Ministry Wings of Worship, Shelton has made it his mission to present the gospel of Christ through his music.
Shelton’s work has found him not only portraying the legendary Elvis, but he also can be seen donning the costume of the professional wrestler he calls “Archangel” exciting crowds with his performances as pirate captain Radical and as part of “Swimming Frog” an interactive children’s theater.
When performing his popular Sock Hops, Shelton incorporates music from the ’50s and ’60s in his act.
Shelton is a three-time Gold Star artist award winner, which includes his most recent “Grindle” award 2009 for artistic and vocal excellence. In 2008 he was named “Best Male Vocalist” and in 2007 earned the award for “Best International Christian Male Artist.”
The concert presented by Shelton will take place at Jesus Christ Ministries located at 5100 Doug Taylor Circle in St. James City, just south of the center on Pine Island. The show will take place on Saturday, June 27 beginning at 7 p.m.
This concert is open to the public and is free of charge.
