NORTH MANKATO, MINN. — Contemporary Christian Singer-Songwriter Jason Gray will be performing at Crossview Covenant Church, 2000 Howard Drive West, North Mankato on Saturday, March 11th. Doors open at 6:00 pm with the concert beginning at 7:00 pm.

Gray has won two ASCAP Performance Awards for “More Like Falling In Love” and “Good to Be Alive”. He has shared the stage with many major artists such as Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman and Sanctus Real.

It’s Gray’s honesty and his willingness to explore both the valleys and mountaintops with equal candor that define his artistry and have made him one of the most compelling songwriters of his generation. While Gray draws from a deep well lyrically, what sets him apart musically is the diverse array of influences that make up his colorful palette.

“I appreciate pop music, but I also want to marry it to a reflective, hopefully interesting and compelling lyric,” says Gray, who was also influenced musically by his mother. “I grew up on the road with my mom’s band, so I was always hanging out in the bars while they were doing a concert every weekend.  In the 4th grade, in the midst of an ugly divorce, is when my mom became a Christian. She went from singing in the bars to singing at revival meetings and so at that point I was introduced to Christian music. Meanwhile, I was also navigating the challenges of being a kid with a speech handicap and this growing feeling of being an outsider.  All of these experiences have shaped my music.”
