Michael W. Smith is returning to the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre to present his annual Christmas show.

On Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. Smith will perform his “A Very Special Christmas: The Symphony Tour.” The show features Smith and a full symphony orchestra plus choir. Smith will sing selections from his three Christmas albums.

“The journey’s not finished. We’ve all got our gifts and we all get to contribute, and this is what I’m supposed to do. For some reason, I still love music. For some reason, I still love performing live. And for some reason, I still feel a surge when I step into a recording studio.” said Smith.

Smith is a Christian singer with 44 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, three Grammys and more than 15 million sales to his credit.

Tickets for his show are on sale now and are available online at abbotsfordcentre.ca, at the AESC box office, by calling 1-866-977-2372 or visit one of three ticket outlets located at the Abbotsford and Matsqui recreation centers and Whatcom Wine & Spirits.
