Jesus Christ is Risen! 

He is Risen indeed, Hallelujah!  The tomb is empty and Jesus is on the loose!  He has broken death wide open and the world will never be the same. Come celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, and the new life that it means for us.  It may just change your life!

From the nightclub scene to stardom opportunities, Mary Hall found the only way to peace and happiness was by following the path that God has chosen for her life.
That choice led to performing with a new purpose. She will tell her story!

With a smooth vocal range of nearly three octaves and unique guitar style, Mary Hall has created a wonderful concert experience for all ages.

This is one concert YOU won't want to miss!
