CRYSTAL GAYLE TO GIVE HOLIDAY CONCERT AT THE RVCC THEATRE
The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in North Branch will kick off its 16th annual Merck Series with a holiday concert by the chart-topping artist Crystal Gayle, Saturday, December 8, at 8 p.m. The Merck Series is made possible by a generous grant from The Merck Company Foundation. Tickets to Crystal Gayle Christmas cost $40 and $45.
Crystal Gayle began her musical career in country music when she was still in school, but it wasn?t long before she was striking fame with country/pop crossover ballads. In 1977 she became the first female artist in country music history to achieve platinum album sales with We Must Believe in Magic . The album featured her signature song, ?Don?t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue,? a #1 country hit that rose to #2 on the American pop charts. In 2003 All My Tomorrows , a collection of American standards, demonstrated that Gayle?s musical talents were nearly boundless. Join us for some Christmas cheer, as this industry giant sings her greatest hits as well as everyone?s Christmas favorites.
