Award Winning Christian Music Artist to Perform Benefit Concert

BRIDGEPORT – Dove Award winning, singer-songwriter, and contemporary Christian musician Mark Schultz is coming to Connecticut to perform a benefit concert at Fairfield University’s Quick Center on March 15, 2024 at 7 pm. There will be a private Meet & Greet for sponsors from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in the Green room within the Quick Center.

The contemporary Christian music artist has ten #1 hit singles and has sold more than 2 million records in a career that spans two decades. Adopted at two weeks of age and raised by loving parents, Schultz has a passion for sharing his story and being a champion for others. He has done more than 200 concerts to benefit crisis pregnancy centers, orphans and adoption agencies across the country.

The Fairfield concert will benefit Malta House, of Norwalk, which provides a home for pregnant and parenting mothers of all faiths. The performance will include two 45-minutes sets with a 20-minute intermission.

“Mark Schulz has crafted a powerful music ministry. His music speaks of faith, family and home and his songs will uplift and inspire all those who attend,” said Deacon Stephen Hodson, of St. Francis Parish, who is helping coordinate the concert for the second year, along with a team of volunteers from Malta House, Saint Francis of Assisi parish, Saint Luke parish, St. Mary’s of Ridgefield and St. Theresa parish“Mark has a remarkable life story that he shares powerfully in song that resonates in so many lives.” Mike O’Rourke and his wife, A.C. raved about Mark’s performance last year: “ I cannot say that I am a big fan of Christian music but Mark’s songs were real and the melodies were easy on the ears. Most importantly, his stories made all the difference because Mark got you engaged before you heard the song. He is an exceptionally talented performer and I thank Steve Hodson for arranging this event again!”

Schultz will be playing new music along with his many hits, which include “He’s My Son,” “I Am,” “Remember Me” and “Everything to Me.” His hit single, “Everything to Me,” is about his life and gratitude to his birth mother.

“I wanted to write a song for birth mothers, so that they could hear how grateful I am to my own birth mom and how she made the choice to give me life,” he said.

Adopted at two weeks of age and raised by loving parents, singer/songwriter Schultz grew up in Colby, Kansas. Although he enjoyed great success in high school sports such as track and football, Schultz’ musical talents outshone his athletic strengths. He soon moved to Nashville; where instead of fulfilling his aspirations of a career in music, Schultz ended up in youth ministry. His position as a youth leader at the First Presbyterian Church inspired the young songwriter to write songs about people in the congregation. Weekly concerts featuring Schultz drew crowds. After continued concerts, including a benefit concert he organized at the Ryman Auditorium, Schultz signed with Myrrh Records and released his self-titled debut album in 2000.

Schultz has garnered accolades like Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, and Album of the Year and has appeared on ABC’s 20/20, Extreme Home Makeover, and CNN’s Morning Edition. In 2007 Mark partnered with Family Christian Stores and the James Fund to help raise awareness and support for orphans by riding his bicycle across the country from California to Maine, doing 14 concerts along the way and raising $250,000.

“It was the single greatest thing that I’ve done in my career,” said Schultz, “And it awoke a passion in me to share my story and be a champion for others.”

That summer tour has led to Schultz doing more than 200 benefit concerts for crisis pregnancy centers and adoption agencies across the country.

Recently, Mark and his wife Kate, who have two boys, Ryan and Gus, adopted two daughters, Maia Mae and Ebby Lou. “It’s amazing for me to be on this side of adoption,” Schultz said. “This love that I have for my daughters is like nothing else I’ve ever experienced. We have a very special bond.”
