Ridgeland ~ Edwin McCain in Concert
Edwin McCain in concert
John Paul II Catholic School is honored to have Edwin McCain perform a benefit concert on our campus, November 6, during his 2021 national tour. Twin Roots will kick off the evening events with lead singer and JPII performing arts teacher, Ava Nixon, followed by The Nice Guys before Edwin McCain takes the stage at 8pm.
Edwin McCain, originally from Greenville, South Carolina, is a singer songwriter best known for his hit singles “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask for More.”
Called the “great American romantic” by the New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years by balancing his massive pop success with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour. His hit songs, authentic spirit, and surprisingly affable sense of humor keep fans coming back time and time again for nights that feel more like parties with old friends than rock concerts. After recording two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music and experiencing the success that comes with a television show on Animal Planet (Flipping Ships), McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the U.S.
The enduring love songs (and wedding must-haves) – “I’ll Be” and “I Could Not Ask For More” – aren’t just for the romantic at heart; American Idol and The Voice contestants turn to Edwin’s ballads every year to help them win over judges and fans alike (just ask last season’s AI winner, Nick Fradiani). Even Justin Bieber has been known to belt out “I’ll Be” during his own concerts. The year 2018 marked the 20th anniversary of the success of “I’ll Be,” which topped the Billboard charts in 1998 and has proven to be a timeless classic.
This is an outdoor FAMILY EVENT event. Bring your own chairs or blankets. No Refunds or Exchanges. There is no rain date or alternate venue.
The JPII grounds will open at 4pm. Multiple area food trucks will be on site to serve up their unique offerings. The concerts will begin at 5pm.
