Donald Braswell Christmas Concert: No Crib for a Bed

Release Date: 2009-12-09

Readers might know Donald Braswell’s name from America’s Got Talent, where the SA native proved himself by winning fourth place on the reality show. Surprises along the way included changing the hostile audience’s tune (they went from booing him in the first verse of his audition song to cheering in the second) and being voted back onto the show after getting the ax. Braswell earned his chops at Juilliard and has toured extensively as a professional opera singer, so prepare to be wowed at this holiday concert benefiting San Antonio Metropolitan Ministries, a program dedicated to providing shelter and care for SA’s homeless. $20, 7pm, First Presbyterian Church, 404 N. Alamo, (210) 226-0215,
