Legends II - An Evening of Music with Matt Martin

Matt Martin Bio:

No stranger to the stage, or the pulpit, Rev. Matthew Martin has been an Anglican priest for ten years and has been impersonating Elvis since before he was six. A true performer, Martin was the headliner in the Drayton Entertainment production of Blue Suede Shoes in 2012, and was named the Grand Champion, of the non-professional category in 2010 for his tribute of the King of Rock and Roll in Collingwood, Ontario.

Matt finds his true passion working as the Anglican Priest and Chaplain at Huron University College.  Martin’s voice always captivates – whether he is singing a century-old religious hymn, a touching Christmas carol or an upbeat rock song, you can clearly see his soul in every performance.

Matt is also the former spiritual director at Camp Wendake, but remains an avid supporter of the program. He has decided to dedicate his talent in support of Camp Wendake. All proceeds from this evening go to the camp.

Camp Wendake Bio:

Camp Wendake is a one-week residential camp program for children and adults living with HIV, their families and caregivers. Camp Wendake is an amazing contradiction! People gather because of a common health concern but find freedom from focusing upon the disease for a brief time and find an opportunity to celebrate life in a community where HIV/AIDS in the norm. People may choose to attend camp in order to learn and share more about coping with their overall health and social issues. Or they may come for the rest and refreshment of a caring and understanding community.
