Wiebes grace Hope church with free concert

Grace Baptist Church welcomes Wiebes into sanctuary for free concert

Grace Baptist Church is holding a free concert on Sunday, December 11 with The Wiebes.

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 the year 2000 with the Columbia Singers. The group was led by Tony Funk, who would end up bringing the couple together again two years later.

As the story goes, Angela needed a pianist to accompany her on violin. She called Tony 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 of 2002, and were married in December of 2003.

The following May, Shane began his journey to a top five spot on CTV’s hit television show, Canadian Idol, having the privilege of working with musicians like Lionel Richie and Gordon Lightfoot. Shane and Angela currently live in Stratford, Ontario and still cherish the opportunity to perform their music together whenever and wherever they can.

In June of 2009, The Wiebes released their debut album, Into Your Light, which won Inspirational Album of the Year at the 2010 Covenant Awards. In December 2009, The Wiebes released their Christmas record, Christmas With You. The album has been nominated for two Covenant Awards, and ended up on the Canadian AC Top 50 charts among artists like Michael Buble and Mariah Carey.

The opening act for the Wiebes will be the the GBC Childrenʼs Christmas Concert, with

performances by the Girlʼs Club, as well as the Sunday School Classes.

The concert starts at 6:30 pm with the childrenʼs performace, followed by The Wiebes.

It is a free concert, and a love offering will be taken to support the ministry of Shane and Angela.
