Freshman commercial voice major Jordan Kyle won Sunday night’s 2007 Christian Showcase, “Resonate.” The show, which was produced by music business majors Luke McElroy and Brittany Parks, featured four talented acts in an evening of praise and worship.
Kyle, a St. Louis native, began playing violin in the third grade and was concertmaster of the symphonic orchestra in high school. After fracturing his wrist while playing football in high school, Kyle began teaching himself to play guitar. His set for the showcase included “Solid Rock,” “Just Till Noon” and “Astounded.” Other Belmont talent featured at Resonate included artist/performers Katie Redding, Joshua Eric Wright and Hana Wishy.
The Christian Showcase was the first in a series of six concerts presented during the academic year by students within the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business. Produced and managed by university students, the series has become a living laboratory for concert production and promotion, artist management and sound reinforcement skill development.
The Urban/Pop Showcase, the next production in the series, will take place on Sat., Oct. 27 at 7 p.m. in the Curb Event Center.
