An early Xmas gift for the ladies


Have you been nice all year long, but still hope to have the opportunity to let loose that "Naughty Girl" inside? Then, do whatever you have to, ladies, and get that man of yours to take you to see Jim Brickman's Holiday Concert on Tuesday, Dec, 19. Jim Brickman (that gorgeous man pictured to the right) is known for tickling the ... ivories with the likes of the late Gerald Levert, Martina McBride and Michael W. Smith among others. His new age music creates its very own version of "The Great Escape" for his fans seeking a relaxing musical getaway from the stress of the holidays. In a very special concert performance, Jim Brickman and his special guests -- including acoustic violinist David Klinkenberg and fast-rising vocalist Jake Simpson (you remember him don'tcha -- he's the Star Search winner that idolized Stevie Wonder so Oprah surprised him with an impromptu duet with the legendary performer) -- present an evening of dazzling solo piano, vibrant vocals and warmth and humor. This event takes place at Ovens Auditorium, 2700 East Independence Blvd., at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $35-$45. Charge by phone -- 704-522-6500 or online at
