St. Louis vocalist Brian Owens will be performing a holiday concert to benefit a University of Missouri-St. Louis scholarship fund this Sunday at the Bistro at Grand Center. The event is sponsored by the UMSL African American Alumni Chapter.
"It’s been a real blessing for me to continue in partnership with the university I graduated from," said Owens, who graduated in 2008.
In addition to his connections with UMSL, Owens also has working relationships with Sterling Bank and other local businesses.
"That's been one of the blessings in my career, is that God's really given me the resources that I need to do without having to give in to kind of the whims of an industry that may not always agree with what I want to say or how I want to do it," said Owens.
