Kingwood welcomed home Nashville-based, Christian recording artist Christi Harper in grand style as hundreds of local residents turned out for last Friday night’s Keller Williams concert. It was without a doubt the most elaborate production ever put on at Kings Harbor. Harper and her entire six-piece band Pierced Grip performed on a huge stage erected on the Harbor Plaza. A jumbo video screen projected the entire concert which was being taped live for a promotional video.
The music at the first of four Keller Williams Summer Nights at the Harbor concerts was a flashback to the ‘50s. Wayne King entertained the crowd last Thursday at Kings Harbor with songs by Roy Orbison, Frank Sinatra and assorted ’50s “Doo-Wop” artists.
Nashville-based Christian recording artist Christi Harper will perform at the free Keller Williams concert series at Kings Harbor on Fri., June 18 from 7-10 p.m. She will be accompanied by the Houston area Christian band Pierced Grip.
“It will be a fantastic, family-friendly night of popular favorites, original songs and some fun cover tunes,” says Harper, who grew up in Kingwood and is looking forward to singing for her hometown crowd.
Just when they thought it was safe to go back to their real estate jobs, the KW Thriller Dancers are now on YouTube. Someone secretly recorded the daylight performance of the KW Thriller Dancers at the Keller Williams Concert at Kings Harbor on April 16.
A group of nine Keller Williams Realty Northeast associates under the direction of Fred Astaire Dance Studio transformed into zombies to dance a tribute to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. They performed twice, once before the sun went down, and a second time under the light of the moon which really brought the zombies to life. The performers were: Michael Clapp, Bob and Terri Blewett, Sandy Beatte, Sandy Swensen, Denise Hernandez; Carol Alford, Suzanna Cheek, and Tina Leigh.
