This holiday season, the Blind Boys of Alabama are touring in support of their latest Christmas album, "Talkin' Christmas!".  The album features blues legend Taj Mahal and includes several original holiday songs.  This special concert will also include songs from the band's previous Grammy-winning Christmas recording "Go Tell It on the Mountain," some of their gospel classics, and other gems from a 70-plus-year career.

The Blind Boys of Alabama are recognized worldwide as living legends of gospel music; inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and winners of five Grammy® Awards. The Blind Boys are known for crossing multiple musical boundaries with their remarkable interpretations of everything from traditional gospel favorites to contemporary spiritual material by songwriters such as Eric Clapton, Prince and Tom Waits.

Blessed with a searing three octave range, Rebecca Noelle's voice has been featured on the CBC, Sirius Radio, BBC Radio, Radio Bremen, and countless local-level frequencies worldwide. After making waves as the 1st runner-up on TVA's La Voix (The Voice: Canada), The Jacksons invited Rebecca to be a guest vocalist on their Canadian tour. She's been featured on stage with Patsy Gallant, BB King, and Johnny Winter. Rebecca is currently writing her 3rd solo album, and also records and performs with her electronic duo The Stellasonic, soul big-band The Commotions, and pop-art troupe The PepTides. Although Rebecca has had the privilege to try her hand at just about every genre she's wanted to over the years, it’s her natural affinity for jazz and captivating presence, that sets this singer apart.
