My wife and I lead a small group Bible study each Sunday morning. We’ve been leading this group for about five years now. Well at our group Christmas party the class members gifted us with tickets to the Martina McBride Christmas concert in Fayetteville, AR. The Walton Performing Arts Center seats about 1200 and it is the perfect venue. There is not a bad seat in the house and has a very intimate feel. You don’t feel like your sitting in the rafters of an arena venue. It is like 1200 friends seated in the living room and Martina has come to entertain us. It was indeed a special gift.
After the concert we drove a couple of block to the town square and admired the Christmas lights. My wife asked a young couple to take our photo with our phone. There were some reflections in the lens and it shows as those white spots in the image.
I know I posted this song by David Phelps the other day, but Martina performed this classic in her concert and she can still bring the goose bumps with her voice.
Live instruments add a special touch to any concert. While Martina did not bring a full orchestra, she did have a ten piece group to back her up and they were a perfect compliment to her timeless voice. If you ever get a chance to see a Martina McBride Christmas concert, I suggest you get your tickets early and make your Christmas holiday special.
Have a blessed Christmas!
