Violinist and vocalist Jean Watson has just released her brand new album "Steady My Gaze." But there's no resting for her. In fact, Watson will be all over the map this Christmas. Watson's holiday season kicked off on Saturday, November 28, with a headlining performance at Green Bay, Wisconsin's legendary Cup O' Joy.
"I previously had the opportunity to sing at Cup O' Joy during an open mic night," says Watson. "I was thrilled to be invited back to share my music as a headliner."
Prior to her performance at Cup O' Joy, Watson was interviewed by veteran radio personality Brian Hay from the region's influential Christian station, WRVM-FM, which has long been a supporter of Watson's music and promoted the event. The following week, she traveled to Orchard Lake Community Church in the Detroit suburb of Orchard Lake, Michigan, where she performed alongside renowned guitarist John Standefer with a full choir and orchestra during the church's "Christmas Presence" event.
Watson appeared at the Sunday morning service at Blessed Hope Church in Lincoln Park, Michigan, and at the evening service at Simple Truth Church in Marcellus, Michigan on December 6. On Saturday, December 12, she appeared at Lighthouse Community Church's "Lighthouse Living Nativity" and on Sunday morning, December 13, she performed at Life Changing Ministries in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Not forgetting "the least of these," Watson will minister to inmates at the Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility in Ionia, Michigan on Saturday, December 19. On the following day, she will headline a Christmas concert at Mount Hope Church in Portland, Michigan, before closing out her busy holiday schedule with a special Christmas Eve concert at Northville Christian Assembly in Northville, Michigan.
