The Wright Kids and BJ Thomas performed at the Salem Civic Center on Friday, November 5. The kids were thrilled to share the bill with such a great country and pop music legend! BJ Thomas has sold millions of records in his career and has won numerous awards, including 5 grammies.
Sage, Baruch and Levi opened the concert with their acoustic mix of oldies rock, pop and bluegrass. Selah performed her two favorite songs, Bob Marley's Three Little Birds and Bill Monroe's Blue Moon of Kentucky . The kids closed their set with a song that put them in the TOP 10 on season 3 of America's Got Talent, Rockin Robin. The packed colliseum gave a standing ovation and the emcee asked the kids if they could do one more song. This time they would perform a Monkees' classic, I'm A Believer .
BJ performed a mix of greatest hits and new releases. Hooked on a Feeling and Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head were crowd favorites. BJ wrapped up an incredible night of music with his powerful rendition of an Elvis classic, Suspicious Minds.
Meeting BJ was a highlight and an inspiration for the kids. Michael Vest snapped a pic of the kids hanging out with BJ before they took the stage. After the show, BJ met the kids and congratulated them on a great performance.
