WALLA WALLA — Christian artist Adam Cappa and his band will perform at 6 p.m. Aug. 31 on the Pepsi Stage at the Walla Walla Fairgrounds.
The event, sponsored by Positive Life Radio and Walla Walla University, is free with the fair entrance fee.
Music wasn’t the first interest for Cappa, who was born and raised in Richmond, Ind., the birthplace of recorded jazz. However, he was heavily influenced by several mentors in his life.
Cappa bought a guitar, learned a few songs and soon was leading fellow students at a local youth group in Matt Redman’s “Blessed Be Your Name” and Chris Tomlin’s “Enough.”
“God began to write a lot of songs in my heart,” Cappa said in a release. “Before I knew it, I felt the Lord had called me to pursue ministry on the road full time. I sold my car, bought a van and started playing for teen camps full time.”
Christian artist Jeremy Camp. Camp mentored Cappa through his first demo. Cappa’s debut album, “The Rescue,” has both a pop and praise tone to it.
