Event showcased local talent including national recording artist Cincere
The 24th Annual Christmas Family Feast, brought to you by The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County, not only boasted a delicious home style meal, and a volunteer choir, the event also presented a stellar line up of hometown talent that thrilled the Feast diners on Christmas Day at the Wisconsin Center District, 4th & Wisconsin from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Each of our stars for the day donated their gift of song.
Starting things off was the lovely Stephanie Brill whose list of honors is quite impressive for a young lady who has yet to celebrate her 16th birthday.
Stephanie has been recognized by WAMI, MAMA and WSSS. Lots of initials but it all spells one thing – she’s good!
Returning this year was a crowd favorite, Robin Adkins, the big bass voice of the Tempters.
Robin went solo again this year to bring us the songs of the season recreating the sounds that make Christmas time so special.
Songs originally performed by Nat King Cole and the Temptations highlighted Robin’s performance.
Always a showstopper, the MPS Homeless Choir led by Milwaukee music legend, Arlene Skwierawski and the ever energetic K.C. Williams.
This choir has been a welcome part of the Christmas Family Feast for a many years and this year again was simply wonderful.
Pianist Eric Look is an amazing musician. At three years old he was diagnosed with Autism.
But that didn’t stop him.
Eric has performed at many local venues in the area including the Pfister Hotel, Mitchell Park Domes and the Country Springs Hotel.
He has worked in studio on original music and won awards for his work.
Bringing the day to a rousing close is none other than Milwaukee recording artist Cincere.
We were extremely happy to have this extraordinary singer join us to ring in the season.
Cincere is well known for his R&B songs, he captivated the audience with his rendition of the Christmas classics.
“This 24th Christmas Family Feast was one of the most exciting yet.
We’re so happy to have the line up of artist contributing to the spirit of the day. Each of them, in their own way, helped us celebrate the season, adding special ingredients to the day’s menu.
We thank them all,” said Major Dan Jennings, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Wisconsin & Upper Michigan.
Christmas Family Feast was free and open to the public.
