Grace Baptist Church welcomes duo for special concert

Grace Baptist Church is offering a free concert with The Wiebes on Sunday.

Shane and Angela Wiebe have been singing together since the day they met. Their first adventure, long before they began dating, was a choir tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2000 with the Columbia Singers. The group was led by Tony Funk, who ended up bringing the couple together again two years later. As the story goes, Angela needed a pianist to accompany her on violin. She called Funk for the number of someone who could help her last minute, and was given Shane’s.

The couple began performing regularly together, started dating in June 2002, and were married in December 2003. The following May, Shane began his journey to a top five spot on the hit television show Canadian Idol, where he had an opportunity to work with musicians like Lionel Richie and Gordon Lightfoot.

The Wiebes released their debut album Into Your Light in June 2009, which won Inspirational Album of the Year at the 2010 Covenant Awards. The duo’s 2009 Christmas With You album was also nominated for two Covenant Awards, and ended up on the Canadian AC Top 50 charts among artists like Michael Buble and Mariah Carey. Their latest record, The Hymns Collection, was recently released and is steeped in poetic and theological music.

The opening act for The Wiebes on Dec. 11 will be the GBC Children’s Christmas Concert, with performances by the girl’s club as well as the Sunday school classes.

The concert starts at 6:30 p.m., and an offering will be taken to support the ministry of The Wiebes. Grace Baptist Church is located at 949 Third Ave.
