Young Life of Rome/Floyd County presents an evening of story and song with Christian singer/songwriter Ellie Holcomb on Sunday, Oct. 27, at the Rome City Auditorium.
A Nashville native, Holcomb began her musical career by touring with her husband and his band, Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors. After eight years and with the birth of their first child, Ellie opted to step out of the role of heavy touring. From that space came her debut solo album As Sure As The Sun, which charted no. 1 on the iTunes Christian chart and helped deem Holcomb the “Best New Artist” at the 2014 Dove Awards.
Her most recent album, Red Sea Road, was released in January of 2017. The album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Christian Chart. Three songs, “Find You Here,” “Red Sea Road,” and “Wonderfully Made” have charted as top Christian singles.
“We hope the Rome community will come out to this event to enjoy Ellie’s great talent and a fun-filled evening together, ” Young Life Area Director Drew McCleskey said.
Young Life is an international ministry to high school kids with active local clubs at Darlington, Pepperell, Model, Armuchee and Rome. Additionally, specific clubs provide mentors for teenaged mothers and high school students with disabilities.
“This evening will be a hope-filled night celebrating ministry to all kinds of high school kids in Rome through a fantastic performer,“ added McCleskey.
Ellie has performed with Third Day, MercyMe, Stephen Curtis Chapman, Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin, and more. She has performed at the Fox Theater in Atlanta as well as the Ryman Theater and the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.
General Admission tickets are available online for $20. A limited number of VIP packages are also available which include front row or box seating and a post-concert meet and greet backstage with Ellie. Advanced ticket purchase is recommended: Click here.
