Holy Infant presents ValLimar Jansen on April 14

Jansen shares Gospel through music and drama.

Blessed with an extraordinary voice, ValLimar Jansen is a highly regarded singer, composer and recording artist. She is a university professor, a leader of worship and prayer, and a workshop presenter at conferences across the United States and abroad.

Join us for An Evening of Stories and Song on Palm Sunday, April 14 at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for youth. Tickets are available at the parish office and on sale after weekend Masses. Tickets will also be available at the door on the night of the concert. 

Known especially for her work with gospel, contemporary Christian and gospel-jazz styles, she sings a wide range of music, including spirituals and traditional, organ-based choral music. In 2005 she released her first solo collection, You Gotta Move. Other recent projects include her stirring, gospel-style rendition of Jaime Cortez’s classic “Rain Down” on the Live It! two-CD compilation; and lead and background vocals on Clothed in Love, Tom Kendzia’s collection of spirituals and gospel-style music for the liturgy. ValLimar has sung and toured professionally in the United States and internationally.

She has also played the role of Beneatha with the Broadway touring cast in the European premier of Raisin. She went on to co-author a one-woman musical about the life of Ethel Waters that received a special commendation from the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

ValLimar composes all her music with the help of her husband, Frank. They live in California and have three children.
