Up-and-coming Singer/Songwriter Cristabelle Braden to Perform at Lebanon Valley College Chapel
Rising Christian music talent to share her amazing story of brain trauma as part of Chapel Concert Series
This is a concert you will not want to miss. Cristabelle simply offers her songs and a rather amazing personal story. Four years ago she sustained a very serious traumatic brain injury which significantly reduced her capacity to function in the world. While other teenagers were learning to drive and going out on the weekends, Cristabelle was in neuro-trauma rehabilitation therapy learning how to once again navigate her world. Life became very difficult for her, and this is when she began to write music. Her Christian faith has sustained and guided her through her on-going process of recovery, and her songs reflect her deeply felt gratitude and devotion. Now a lively, passionate, successful college freshman, she has a remarkable history and a promising future.
To see Cristabelle perform her music is to be captivated by her sincerity, charm, and beautiful music. As a result, her music career is expanding. Harmony, her first EP, was released this past May and she will be releasing a single early next year. She regularly plays music at coffee houses, youth groups, church services, community festivals, and the like.
The concert on November 19 will feature Cristabelle on vocals, acoustic guitar, and piano, Jeff Yorgey on electric guitar, bass, and keys, and Matt Ramage on drums. All three of them are students at Lebanon Valley College. Jeff is a junior music composition and physics double major who has been playing guitar for twelve years. Matt is a sophomore music education major who has been playing piano since the age of four and over the years has branched out to other instruments. Cristabelle usually plays her shows alone, but since becoming a student at LVC she has met other gifted and passionate musicians that are willing and happy to perform with her, adding energy and a fuller sound to her songs.
If there is one thing you need to know, it’s this: Cristabelle offers more than good music; she offers inspiration, hope, and sincerity.
LVC Students will be admitted free with their college ID. Tickets for non-students are $6 in advance, $10 at the door. Advance orders for groups of 10 people or more are $4/person.
