April 17 – 18, 2012 – The Browns in Christian Concert
It’s truly a family affair when The Browns hit the stage and deliver the powerful message of the gospel through word and song.
The musical stylings of Shelly, Michaela, Adam, Andrew, Nick and
Jessica exude excitement and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them. They have been touring for ten years and received the prestigious honors of Top 10 Mixed Group of the Year for two years running and Top Horizon Group of the Year for three years before that. From singing over 30 shows at the Americana Theatre in Branson to Dollywood stages and on board Royal Caribbean and Carnival cruise ships this award winning family will inspire you with their close-knit family harmony and talent. The Browns love what they do, love each other, and the audiences to whom they sing. While the traveling can be hard Shelly said, “Because we know we’re called, it’s been worth it all. God has opened the doors and there are adventures and blessings behind each one.” Tuesday and Wednesday matinee arrival 10:30am.
Tuesday evening arrival 5:00 p.m.
