Country music recording artist John Berry performed for children at the Murphy-Harpst Childrens Center the evening of Nov. 22. He sang his own songs, including Your Love Amazes Me and Shes Taken a Shine, as well as Christmas songs such as Silent Night. The children have been anticipating his visit, said Emily Saltino, vice president of development at Murphy-Harpst, before the performance. It is going to be very meaningful to them. Berry also met with the children and took questions from them. On Nov. 25, at 7:30 p.m., Berry will perform a selection of Christmas songs, as well as original songs, at the Cedartown Performing Arts Center. The Cedartown performance is the first of Berrys Christmas Tour 2005. Ticket prices range from $15 to $30 and can be purchased by calling 770-748-4168.
