Award-winning faith-based folk singer/songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine is issuing a personal – and musical – invitation via YouTube, to attend his benefit concert at First United Methodist Church of Palo Alto, Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m.
Proceeds from the concert ($20 donation suggested) will go to support the church's global missions.
Valentine is a Bay-Area artist who currently is touring around the coast of California. His warm, accessible melodies and often-profound lyrics have developed a following around the nation.
In August of 2011, a song from the album Fly was named Song of the Year by the West Coast Songwriters' Association. Valentine's new album, A Place to Belong, was released to favorable reviews and his single, "Be Mine," had radio airplay even before the album's release.
