Check out what Becky Berry from SPAR has to say about the event:

Shreveport Public Assembly and Recreation (City of Shreveport) announces an upcoming Free Fridays Forever concert featuring Victoria Wells on December 27, 2013, from 5 PM to 8 PM in the Red River Entertainment District.

Victoria Wells is a talented young musician who shows a lot of promise.  Give her a guitar and an invitation to play and she will strive to make you smile. She is an 8th grader at Caddo Middle Magnet where she loves attending school and was one of ten finalists for Student of the Year.

She has only been playing the guitar for about three years. She took lessons for a year and a half from local Youth Pastor Philip Cole, who is an accomplished musician and previous national and regional Christian travel band member. She says she would love to be able to take lessons again to continue growing as a musician. Victoria and her family are very thankful to Philip for setting a positive and honorable example and teaching her valuable musical skills and Biblical truth. They also say that they always feel grateful to another local artist, Amelia Blake of Airheart, for her generosity and encouragement. When Victoria was barely 11, Amelia shared her platform with her numerous times over a year, allowing her to play and to sing a few songs; and ultimately discovering the joy she has in performing.

Her music style interests are a mix of pop, folk, gospel, and Christian. She enjoys preforming songs from artists such as Taylor Swift, Adele, Katy Perry, Jewel, Elton John, Eva Cassidy, Carly Simon, Britt Nicole, Francesca Battistelli, and Josh Wilson.

Victoria will be performing on Friday, December 27th at 5 PM in the Red River Entertainment District under the Texas Street Bridge in a free concert as a part of Free Fridays Forever.  For more information on Victoria, Free Fridays Forever and the other upcoming programming in the Red River Entertainment District, please contact Catherine Kennedy
