A holiday concert in Richardson Park will help to herald in the season when the Wilton Manors Business Association (WMBA) presents “Holiday Spectacular In The Park” with sensational vocalist Jonathan Hawkins on Dec. 10.
The family event will feature Hawkins as well as an array of local and national talent. Confirmed artists include Yoli Mayor, Heather Lundstedt, Jennifer McClain, Tommy Paduano and LeNora Jaye and Antonio Edwards. Part-proceeds will benefit Poverello, Wilton Manors Elementary School and the city.
“This is the perfect opportunity for the whole community to come together and share in the spirit of love, giving and caring that our one-of-a-kind island city, Wilton Manors, is known for,” said Tim Moffitt, president of the Wilton Manors Business Association. “It will be a beautiful, early evening event for the whole family to enjoy top quality entertainment in one of our beautiful parks.”
Jonathan Hawkins has wowed Wilton Manors audiences before with his vocal prowess, most recently directing and performing at Our Night Out in June. He is an operatically-trained singer, director and producer who became famous on Instagram for sharing his travels as he sang at sold-out shows around the world.
“I’m thrilled to be coming back to Wilton Manors for this very special holiday concert,” said Hawkins, whose company, The Muse Presents, is producing the show.
“To produce what hopefully will become an annual tradition for the first time in Richardson Park is a great honor. But what is even more exciting is the line up of talent I’ll be joined by,” he said. “This community is so lucky to have some really remarkable local artists, many of whom have become friends and I am overjoyed to share the stage with them, for what is surely to be an incredible evening, filled with holiday spirit!”
