Michael W. Smith to Perform in Meridian

One of the best-selling and most influential Christian music artists of all time will perform next year in Meridian.

Evangel Temple Church announced that Michael W. Smith, winner of multiple Grammy and Dove music awards, will perform there Mar. 15, 2012.

Tickets are on sale for $25.00 each at Bible Book Store and are also available online. A link to the online ticket website is provided below.

Church officials say having an artist the caliber of Smith is a huge thing for the city of Meridian, as wells as the church.

"He's got such a good reputation in worship music and he's just been around so long that we knew that it would be a good event for us to host. And so, yeah, we feel like it's going to be a sellout," said Dusty Culpepper of Evangel Temple. "We're doing this kind of in the holiday season, so people, if they wanted to buy these for Christmas gifts, they could actually do that."

The church also announced two other special events.

Its Christmas drama, Messiah, will be held Dec. 17 and 18 at the church. The alternative band, Satellites and Sirens, will perform there Jan. 12, 2012.
