(West Palm Beach, FL – October 23, 2017) The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts today announced a change in performers in an upcoming holiday concert.
Due to scheduling conflict, the previously announced Gospel artist Donnie McClurkin is being replaced by acclaimed South African singer-songwriter and guitarist Jonathan Butler, who is known for his laid-back, slightly jazz-tinged approach to worship music that has earned him numerous supporters in the urban contemporary and Gospel scene. Butler has been hailed by critics and fans alike for a music style that combines R&B, jazz-fusion and Sunday morning church.
