Mark Wills at Mitchell Opera House
February 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$35.00
Mark Wills will be performing live at the Mitchell Opera House on February 10, 2018 at 7:00 PM. Singer-songwriter Mark Wills was born in Cleveland, Tennessee and brought up in Blue Ridge Georgia and now he’s coming to Mitchell, Indiana. Shortly after winning a local talent contest in Georgia, at age 17, he began to perform locally and built an impressive name for himself. Within a few years he was working first in in Atlanta and then Nashville as a demo singer —a person who auditions the tunes that song writers offer to (often) established stars.
Signed to Mercury Records in 1996, Wills recorded 5 studio albums plus a greatest hits collection for the label. His disc WISH YOU WERE HERE was certified Platinum (for 1 million sales) and the album PERMANENTLY was certified Gold (for 500,000 sold.) He’s scored two number one hits, “Wish You Were Here,” and “19 Something.” He recorded eight top 10 singles, including, 1998’s “I Do Cherish You,” and “Don’t Laugh At Me,” – released the same year he was named Male Vocalist of the Year, by The Academy of Country Music.
Mark also wrote hit records for Reba McEntire and Rascal Flatts. In 2000, he voiced the character of Huckleberry Finn in MGM’s animated remake of Tom Sawyer. Also for the film, Wills and Lee Ann Womack, who plays the singing voice of Becky in the film, perform as a duet, singing the title song “Never Ever and Forever.”
