A Texas County church is hosting a free concert next month with an award-winning vocalist and pianist.
Gordon Mote will perform at 7 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Cabool Christian Church. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. Admission is free although a love offering will be collected.
Mote, who recently was voted “top piano/keyboard player of the year” at the 44th annual Academy of Country Music Awards, began playing piano at the age of 3 and toured with his family’s singing group until his undeniable talent made him an award-winning Nashville sessions player (Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Lionel Richie, Alison Krauss). Mote recently wrapped up a six-year stint singing and playing for the popular Gaither Homecoming concerts and recordings so that he could devote more time to his family and expanding solo career.
The vocalist, producer and keyboardist extraordinaire has been blind since birth, but his words and music reach beyond the ears to the heart. More than his undeniable talent, Mote’s fans appreciate his ability to communicate the love of Christ to a world in need of hope.
Mote has recorded three instrumental and six vocal albums, including the Dove Award nominated If You Could Hear What I See (2004), Don’t Let Me Miss the Glory (2007), Songs I Grew Up Singing (2012) and his acclaimed Christmas collection, The Star Still Shines (2012).
