The Lensic Presents an Aaron Neville Christmas Dec. 10

Aaron Neville is on tour this holiday season with his Quintet performing classic Christmas songs, selections from Aaron’s newest Gospel release “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” as well as hits from throughout his career. Santa Fe, NM, is one of the tour stops for Mr. Neville and the singer is set to grace the stage of The Lensic, from 7:30 to 10 p.m., Monday, Dec. 10, 2012. Santa Fe’s premier on-line visitor guide SantaFe.com features this evening at The Lensic on the website’s event calendar.

In the opening notes on ‘I Know I’ve Been Changed’, the artist known to millions of devoted fans worldwide as Aaron Neville stands before the microphone not as a musical legend, but as an ordinary man appealing to an eternal God. On this recording Mr. Neville’s signature vibrato rises and dips in a musical prayer full of passion, utterly sincere. It is perhaps the most powerful moment on a uniquely moving album — Neville’s first gospel recording since Hurricane Katrina ripped through the singer’s cherished city of New Orleans, destroying Mr. Neville’s personal home, and forever altering so much of the singer’s life. Despite that tragic backdrop, the project plays not as a mournful reflection, but rather as a hopeful celebration of the three things that have shaped Aaron Neville most of all---the singer’s hometown, music and faith.

In grand New Orleans style, 'I Know I’ve Been Changed' celebrates Aaron Neville’s 50th year in recorded music. The album brings the artist’s career full circle, returning him to the music he loved first---gospel music---and reuniting Mr. Neville with Allen Toussaint, the legendary songwriter, musician and producer who produced Aaron’s first recording session in 1960.
