Jess Penner, a local artist from Sunland, celebrated the release of her brand-new CD “Building Heaven” (available on iTunes) at Crescenta Valley Church’s annual Summer Nights concert in La Crescenta on Sunday night. A full house of over 200 fans was treated to an opening set of summer favorites like Pharell Williams’ “Happy” and other popular songs. When Penner took the stage, she kept the audience mesmerized through her set with highlights like her song about saying the final goodbye to a loved one in “As You Go.” (Learn more about her at www.jesspenner.com.)
John Brazell and Browdersister entertained people outside on the church campus on an acoustic stage while everyone enjoyed food truck fare after Penner’s performance. Local vendors were also onsite with products like natural soaps and lotions and toy trucks made from raw wood.
With the success of the event, CVCHURCH officials look forward to more events in the future.
