Concert in Florida

My brother, Phil Biedenbender, and I gave a concert at Open Bible Lutheran Church in the Villages, FL on January 20, 2019. I regularly talk about how I’m a singer as well as a visual artist, but lately I haven’t sung much without my earbuds in at the studio or outside of Magnum Chorum, the Twin Cities’ choir I am a member of. The program included original compositions by Phil, as well as some Broadway classics and old standards. Watch it below!


I promise I'm still dedicated to finishing this challenge...Follow me on Instagram (click the icon up and over to the right) and watch for more heads!
