McCall delights crowd

A member of the audience raises his hands in response to singer Ezekiel Andrew McCall, a Greenwood native, during a Classics at First concert sponsored by First Presbyterian Church Tuesday night at the Historic Elks Building in Greenwood. McCall was accompanied by Paul Brown of Greenwood. McCall, who first appeared in the concert series a year ago, said he selected a program that would reflect his faith in God as well as his past year of auditioning in New York City for Broadway musicals and performing in them in cities across the country. Among his selections were Broadway’s “Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha,” “Make Them Hear You” from “Ragtime” and “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from “Carousel” and the hymns “Be Thou My Vision” and “Amazing Grace.” The audience of 250 sometimes joined him in singing hymns, and during “Amazing Grace,” some of its members reached across aisles to join hands.

I am VERY elated and proud of Ezekiel's accomplishments. I had the pleasure of teaching Ezekiel in 9th grade at Leflore County High School and was instrumental in him attending the Mississippi high school of performing arts. I am humble to know him, and I can't wait to go see him perform on Broadway. Thank you for your gift to the world Ezekiel, and may God continue to order your steps in a mighty way.

With respect,

Mr. Michael Gee
