At Without Walls International Church
FREE ADMISSION/NO TICKET CHARGE
2003 American Idol champion Ruben Studdard is coming to Tampa Bay to co-star in a new musical holiday play, “A Home for Christmas.” Marvin Winans Jr., of the Grammy-winning Winans gospel music dynasty, wrote
the play. The story re-tells the Christmas story through the experience of a homeless man who gets a home and is reunited with his family.
Winans, who lives in Tampa and was nominated for a Stellar Award earlier this year for his best-selling CD “Image of A Man”, also co- stars in the play along side his real-life grandmother, Delores “Mom” Winans. Various actors from the Tampa theater community and Without Walls International Church members fill out the remaining cast.
After winning American idol, Studdard recorded Top Ten hits such as “Flying Without Wings”, “Superstar”, “Sorry 2004” and “I Need An Angel.” His latest CD “Love is” reached the Billboard Top Ten R&B chart earlier this year. Son of gospel legends Marvin Winans and Vickie Winans, Marvin Winans Jr.’s latest CD “Image of a Man” debuted in Billboard’s Top Ten Gospel Albums chart in 2008.
The one-time event takes place Friday, December 18, 2009 @ 7:00 PM at Without Walls International Church, 2511 N. Grady Avenue, Tampa, FL 33607.
There is no admission charge. For further information, call (813) 879-4673.
