NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – A friend of Bethel – and the daughter of long-time adjunct instructor of guitar, Howard Glanton – created a flurry of excitement in south central Kansas on the evening of March 11.
That’s when Kaleigh Glanton, Wichita, earned a “4-chair turnaround” from the coaches on NBC-TV’s star-search show The Voice, with her cover of Credence Clearwater Revival’s “Have You Seen the Rain?”
Kaleigh is familiar to Bethel and North Newton audiences from having appeared a half-dozen times – with Howard on guitar – in the Mojo’s Coffee Bar live music series.
She’ll be making a special visit to Mojo’s Thursday, March 27, with a public show from 7-8 p.m. and a show for students from 9-10 p.m.
“I was starting to do Thursday night music” about a year after opening Mojo’s, says owner Patty Meier. “I was talking to Howard and he mentioned that his daughter, Kaleigh, was a singer. At that point, she was still in high school.”
Kaleigh and Howard Glanton first appeared at Mojo’s in November 2011.
