Marcos Witt Visits American Airlines Arena to Uplift a Disillusioned Congregation
We bet Billy Graham wishes he had thought of it back in the day -- leveraging his radio-preaching, television-evangelizing persona into an even more lucrative superstar empire by adding a dance number to his sermons.
In 2011, though, we've got Marcos Witt belting out solos praising Jesus and his baby blue eyes, thanking Him for his four Latin Grammys, and begging inspiration for his umpteenth CanZion Records release.
It all began when the San Antonio-born artist was dragged to Durango, Mexico, by his Christian missionary parents to build churches and convert a few heathens. Now 50 years, 31 albums, and 10 books later, Witt is making a stop at the American Airlines Arena to win over the hearts of a slightly more disillusioned congregation.
Can songs like "Sana Nuestra Tierra" ("Heal Our Land"), "Si, Puedes Creer" ("Yes, You Can Believe"), and "Dios Desciende Aqui" ("God Descend Here") alleviate our recent loss? Or will the arena just be "Recordando Otra Vez" ("Remembering Once Again")? Guess we'll wait till June 24 to see.
