Actor and artist Christian Keyes, renowned for his compelling performances in Tyler Perry movies, is set to grace St. Louis with the magic of his “SO SWEET” City Winery Tour on Monday, Nov 27th. This tour marks a significant milestone in his career as he takes center stage to enchant the audience with tracks from his latest album, “GET INVOLVED.”
However, this tour is more than a musical spectacle; it’s a heartfelt journey into Christian’s life story. Adopted and candid about his tumultuous time in foster care, he unveils the harrowing experience that transformed when someone decided to open their home, their heart, and provide him with genuine love.
Christian leverages his platform for a noble cause, aligning with The Children’s Bureau National Adoption Month campaign. Through his artistry and influence, he seeks to amplify awareness around adoption issues, with a special emphasis on the urgent need for adoptive families, particularly for teens navigating the challenging U.S. foster care system. His advocacy sends a powerful message, urging people to consider and champion adoption as a viable and compassionate option—fitting for National Adoption Month in November.
The “SO SWEET” City Winery Tour becomes a stage not only for soulful melodies but also for an important conversation. Christian spotlights the transformative power of adoption and hopes to inspire others to make adoption a compassionate choice for building families.
In solidarity, he shares the spotlight with a constellation of celebrities who have walked the adoption path, such as Faith Hill, Nicole Richie, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Marilyn Monroe, Jamie Foxx, Colin Kaepernick, JC Chasez of NSYNC, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Kristin Chenoweth, Sarah McLachlan, and Jack Nicholson.
Christian’s music, a therapeutic journey since childhood, becomes a channel for healing. His hit single “Under That Veil” soared to #22 on the Billboard Adult R&B Charts, testifying to the profound impact of music as a vessel for expression and transformation. As St. Louis awaits this exceptional performance, it’s not just an evening of entertainment; it’s an invitation to be part of a narrative that intertwines music, advocacy, and the celebration of love and family.
