Although he has performed in three of the most celebrated productions in Broadway theatre history: The Lion King, Jesus Christ Superstar and Smokey Joe’s Café, Nashvillian Charles Holt still finds time to give back to his community.
“My music is a gift from God and I want to share it with the world,” — Holt in a recent interview.
Holt will perform in a one-night only special dinner/jazz concert on Thursday, November 20 at 6 p.m. at the Emmanuel Family Life Center, 303 Fairview Lane in Clarksville. Prior to the performance, there will be a silent auction, and all proceeds from the auction will go to the center which is operated by First Missionary Baptist Church. In celebration of his gospel roots, Holt will make a special appearance, Wednesday, November 19, 2008, at 6 p.m., at the First Missionary Baptist Church. His latest CD “I Am” will be on sale both nights.
Holt, who has also appeared in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and All My Children, starred in a one man show based on author Richard Wright’s novel “Black Boy.” This production premiered on hundreds of college and university campuses across America. In addition, Holt was the first African American to play the role of Rocky in the European tour of Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The event on November 20th is limited to 60 people. No tickets will be sold at the door. The event on November 19th is free and open to the public.
