KINGSPORT — An award-winning Christian music artist will be taking the stage in Kingsport in a couple of weeks.
Jason Crabb, known for songs like “Somebody Like Me,” “Through the Fire” and “Home,” will perform at Ross N. Robinson Middle School on Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. Tickets are available now, and organizer Gene Young of Lighthouse Productions said he expects them to sell quickly.
“A lot of gospel music is entertainment, basically, and Jason definitely, but I’d say it’s entertainment with a purpose,” Young said. “He may take off and preach, who knows, because that’s his heart is to see souls saved.”
Lighthouse Productions has teamed up with Rainbow Motors for the concert, which will serve as a tribute to veterans. Doors will open at 5 p.m., and tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.
General admission tickets purchased in advance are $20, and reserved artist circle tickets are $22. Concertgoers who purchase 20 tickets will receive two tickets free. On the day of the concert, all tickets will be $25.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at D&D Printing LLC, Music Doctors, Music Masters, Bowers Florist & Gifts, Gospel Bookstore and Rainbow Motors. Young said attendees will be spread out and required to wear masks to protect against COVID-19.
“Normally with Jason Crabb, you’d fill a building,” Young said, “but this is a different time.”
