As we closed out 2014 coverage year. We ended with a performance by Erin Bode, American singer-songwriter from St. Louis area. She and her 3 other band members put on a holiday show at St Peter Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights on Dec. 27th. This beautiful sanctuary with stained glass and candles lighting the main aisle was the perfect setting for this cozy concert performed for about 50 people. This was the second concert offered by SISU Arts, Inc. and they are just getting some traction with their new partnership to bring more performing arts to the community.
Erin Bode, whose roots are in the Christian Music scene but who has built a devoted following as a singer songwriter with her band in the secular realm as well performed at St. Peter Lutheran Church in Arlington Heights, IL on Saturday December 27, 2014. She has been recognized for the purity of her vocals and the moving songs that she and her band present. Her recording career started in 2001 with release of “Request. This album brought her enough local attention, due in part to a cover of Cyndi Lauper's song "Time After Time", that she was signed to St. Louis jazz label MAXJAZZ. She has been called "someone you won't forget" who is able to "explore a wide range of material in a fresh, often subtle manner" and that possesses a voice that has "great purity, perfect pitch and impressive phrasing." She has appeared on national television within the United States on the shows Fox & Friends Weekend and The Saturday Early Show.
She performed such songs as Winter Wonderland, Ring the Bells, On Christmas night, Photograph and others with her own jazz flare to each.
We will give the performance four guitars. This is someone to keep an eye on for bigger and better things to come.
