Linda Lanier – A Patriotic Concert July 3 in Orofino

Linda Lanier   Celebrate God, family and country at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 3 in Orofino City Park with Linda Lanier, a national and international Nashville recording artist and speaker. Lanier will perform a concert honoring servicemen and women, law enforcement, and emergency services personnel.

   Born in New York and raised in California, Lanier has lived most of her adult life in Victor, MT. More than just another singer and speaker, her patriotism and music reach people at their core. Her personal trials, tragedies, and near death experiences give her a unique empathy and understanding that have allowed her to touch the hearts of millions.

   Having been born into a military family, Lanier possesses a passion for the military and law enforcement, and their families. Her father was a Master Sergeant in the Army during World War II, and her mother was a policewoman at a prison camp in Utah.

   Lanier has family members in each branch of the military. Her husband Rocky served in the Navy, as did her father-in-law, who also served a stint in the Army. Her son, now in law enforcement, served in the Coast Guard. She also has family in the Air Force, Green Berets, and Coast Guard, and one family member is a lieutenant in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

   Lanier has just completed her seventh recording project with tours throughout America. She has performed on the Pentagon grounds in Washington, D.C. for the 9/11 memorial service; hosted and appeared on numerous TV programs; is involved with the Army National Guard; and has had her acclaimed video “Prayer List” broadcast to 1,200 military bases and ships on the Fourth of July.

   Her May 2008 release, “The American Flag,” has been received by 4,300 radio stations nationwide and climbed into the top 10 Christian Country and Country music charts.

   Lanier has generously waived her performance fee for this concert. Donations will be accepted at the performance.

   She will perform an inspirational concert Sunday, July 4 at 10:30 a.m. at the Orofino Church of the Nazarene, located at 802 Michigan Avenue.
