Concert of Praise
A CONCERT OF PRAISE IS . . .
AN EXCITING MUSICAL EXPERIENCE . . .
Donnie Sumner, a multi-talented veteran of musical performance, weaves together a fast-paced, well-planned, themed format of Sacred and Gospel repertoire, utilizing standard, as well as, his own original compositions. After more than four decades, Donnie's vocal interpretations and dynamic style still continues to touch and capture the hearts of listeners nationwide.
AN INSPIRING TESTIMONIAL TO GOD'S GRACE . . .
For over sixteen years, Donnie's life focused upon the professional, musical stage. The final six years of his secular career were spent as a co-performer with and a personal aid to, the late ELVIS PRESLEY. While living in the home of Elvis and pursuing his own career in rock music, Donnie eventually found himself totally dependent upon drugs for his existence. In 1976, having experienced an emotional collapse, his world in shambles, consumed by a wish for self-destruction, his life was dramatically changed and completely rearranged by the transforming power of God's saving grace.
Each evening, Donnie delicately interweaves, between selections, narratives of . . . his own experiences with Elvis, on and off stage; his personal battle with drugs; and his subsequent birth to new life by Christ Jesus . . . in an inspiring portrayal of God's love and divine provision to all humankind. Donnie refers to the change as . . . "From the King of Rock to the King of Kings … by the Grace of God."
AN EXPRESSION OF WORSHIP . . .
Having served as praise leader at several of America 's leading churches, Donnie understands the power of praise. For that reason, Donnie endeavors, by the selection of his repertoire, to draw from his audience a release of true "Praise and Worship" directed toward "He who is worthy of all praise."
Donnie's primary goal at each service is to usher his listener into "God's throne room" in the full assurance that "grace and mercy" will fulfill their every need.
A CELEBRATION OF VICTORY . . .
Donnie, a gifted scriptorian, utilizes his God given ability for scripture memorization to repeatedly and scripturally remind those in attendance that as members of the Body of Christ "with God all things are possible" and that they truly are "in all things more than a conqueror thru Christ Jesus."
A FAMILY EVENING . . .
Donnie presents a variety of musical styles interspersed with both humorous and inspirational dialogue, all with the designed intent to interest, please and encourage all age levels.
AN INTER-FAITH GATHERING . . .
Donnie strives to supersede all ethnic, social and denominational structures in order to lift before all the eternal truth of Jesus thereby allowing Him to "draw all men unto Himself" that in the end their every need is met and His Name is glorified.
