Internationally touring recording artist and singer-songwriter Kyle Vincent will present a solo acoustic concert as a benefit for the Tri-Valley chapter of Turning Wheels for Kids on Sunday, April 7, at 4 p.m.
A native of Berkeley, CA, currently residing in New England, Kyle frequently tours in England, Japan, and throughout the United States. Kyle has had a Billboard charting single, had his songs in movies, on T.V., and released 10 albums. This very special concert will be part of his current West Coast mini tour.
Kyle began his musical journey playing alto saxophone in the renowned Berkeley schools jazz program. He was the opening act for Barry Manilow’s entire Greatest Hits tour, had a stint as lead singer for The Bay City Rollers, and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the music business. Kyle’s environmental call-to-arms, “Sierra” was adopted by the Sierra Club, John Denver’s Windstar Foundation, and UNESCO’s New Songs For Peace. He has also performed the National Anthem at several San Francisco Giants games!
The Tri-Valley Chapter of Turning Wheels for Kids is in its second year of raising funds to purchase, assemble, and donate bicycles to underprivileged children who would otherwise not have a bike. This past December, the Tri-Valley Chapter provided nearly 500 new bikes to children in the Tri-Valley and Hayward/Castro Valley Areas, as well as putting on a free bike repair day for children in Livermore, and looks to increase its contributions to the community.
Last fall, Kyle was considering performing as part of the concert series of First Presbyterian Church of Livermore. In looking at various charities the church works with, Kyle recognized that he shares a common interest in bikes and kids with Turning Wheels for Kids, and he immediately knew he wanted to have all proceeds of his concert benefit TWFK. “Putting it simply, I think every kid should have a bike. There really should be a law!” said Kyle.
This afternoon of music will be held in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church, corner of 4th and L Streets, Livermore, at 4:00 p.m., Sunday, April 7, 2013. The free will donations will benefit the Tri-Valley Chapter of Turning Wheels for kids, suggested minimum donation $10, $5 for students and children, and $25 for a family.
