The Hope College Christian Music Series will feature Bebo Norman on Saturday, Sept. 27, at 9 p.m. in Dimnent Memorial Chapel.

Norman will be accompanied by Gabe Scott in an acoustic performance of the songs that have made him a leader in the Christian music scene.

Norman's latest release, "Myself When I Am Real," went straight to the number one spot on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart and reached the eighth spot on Billboard's Top Internet Sales Charts. A bestseller on the Christian Market Charts, it was also number one on SoundScan's Christian Adult Contemporary Albums Charts.

The "Dallas Morning News" has said, "From the very beginning, Mr. Norman showed himself to be one of the finest singer/songwriters in the Christian music industry... "Myself When I Am Real," leaves no doubt that there are few better than he."

The Christian Music Channel's senior editor said, "For deeply personal reasons, "Myself When I Am Real" has been the soundtrack to my soul this entire year. Piercingly, penetratingly honest lyrics and stunningly beautiful music."

Norman's success over the past six years has landed him cover features in "CCM," "Release," "Premier," and "Christian Single" magazines. He is a veteran concert performer, noted for his personable approach to an audience.Tickets for the concert are $10 for the general public, and go on sale beginning Friday, Sept. 19, at the box office in the theatre lobby of the DeWitt Center.
