The Walker Center was honored to host Jimmy Fortune and Craig Campbell on Thursday, October  17. “Jimmy brought to the stage a very humble heart giving all his thanks and blessings to God and giving the audience a pleasing performance of his famous song, “Elizabeth”, stated Tabitha Hudler, Senior Business Operations Specialist. Campbell cranked up today’s country, but also brought to the mix a beautiful collection of piano music, including “The Dance” by Garth Brooks; “Let it Go” from the movie Frozen, giving his little girls the credit to him knowing the words; and “All of Me: by John Legend.

The performance was sponsored by Carolina West Wireless.
