“It ministers to the soul and quiets the troubled spirit.”
Those are the words used to describe the affect of Neville Peter's music and this weekend, Bundaberg will host a special performance by the talented gospel singer.
Neville's beautiful music will echo through St Andrew's Seventh Day Adventist Church on Saturday evening and is free for the community to attend.
The Florida-based musician was diagnosed with glaucoma from six months of age and by about 12 years old, lost his vision completely.
This never hampered his strong love for music though, and through his participation in the gospel choir at his church as a child, his passion continued to grow.
Through his music career, Neville has written over 100 gospel songs and has shared the stage with Gladys Knight, Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, Natalie Cole and more.
He has performed at the White House and appeared on many television programs.
Neville will arrive in Bundaberg soon to perform at St Andrew's SDA Church on Woongarra Street on Saturday.
Bundaberg man Andres Scheffer is the event organiser and he said it was his friendship with the singer that sparked a visit to the region.
“I met Neville many years ago at a concert in Brisbane and we struck up a good friendship,” he said.
“He has a beautiful voice and is a really nice guy; his concert will be something different for Bundaberg.”
The free concert will begin at 7pm with the opportunity to meet the talented singer after the event.
