Local musician Christopher Strickland and his praise band Sovereign Worship will be performing at the Burke County Fair at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.

Strickland is a sophomore business marketing major in the James M. Hull College of Business and lead vocalist for the band. He is also a current student-athlete, running for the men’s outdoor track and field team.

Sovereign Worship formed recently after Strickland found more musical talents inside the campus ministry organization CRU.

“Our goal is to fill the night with joy and peace through multiple upbeat praise songs and by incorporating sentimental worship songs,” Strickland said. “We have three different sets throughout the night so nobody will miss out on experiencing a move of God in Waynesboro.”

Sovereign Worship performs every Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Social Hall at 2165 King Way. All students are welcome to attend.

Admission for the fair is $3. Admission is $1 for children 36 inches and under.

The Burke County Fair will be from Tuesday, Oct. 22, to Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Burke County Fairgrounds at 156 Manau Lane, Waynesboro.

All churches and youth groups are invited to come support this college ministry group from Augusta University.
