“Reardon Auditorium is pleased to be able to offer this great evening of entertainment,” said Cheryl Shank, director of Conference and Performance Events at Anderson University. “Although we a re sorry for the inconvenience, we feel confident that all will enjoy the great night we have planned with this exceptional talent.”

John David Webster has been making music for years, but has only just recently inked a recording deal. Now he's ready to share his gifts—and the gospel—with a broader audience. His latest project, Made to Shine, represents his national debut, but this Indianapolis native has been making music for years. After starting out in a junior high rock band and studying jazz in high school, it wasn't long before Webster launched a respectable career as an independent artist, opening for the likes of Rich Mullins, Delirious, and Third Day—not to mention performing at Billy Graham's Crusades.

Word of mouth eventually earned him a record deal with BHT Entertainment, and after spending three years on the road writing close to 100 songs, Webster is finally poised to take his music to a broader audience, with a piano-based pop/rock style that's as much Gavin DeGraw as it is Michael W. Smith. The John David Webster concert is a part of the 2005 Homecoming weekend schedule of activities, October 7-8.
