The University of Maine at Fort Kent will host “I Do Believe” a concert by internationally-acclaimed recording artist, Tajci, on Wednesday, October, 15, 2008 at 7 p.m. in Fox Auditorium.            

Free tickets are available through the UMFK Student Affairs office; St John Vianney parish office; Notre Dame du Mont Carmel parish office in Madawaska, and the Christian Life Center in Frenchville.            

The event features the singer/songwriter on keyboards, backed by a world-class musician Denny Bouchard in an emotional portrayal of the life of Christ and Tajci’s own spiritual journey.             

Josh Houde, coordinator of the UMFK Newman Club (Catholic campus ministry) notes, “Tajci has an amazing story and a deep passion to share her experience through music. I’m very excited for the community here to experience her performance. It’s an evening you don’t want to miss.”            

Since the spring of 2000, Tajci has shared her emotional programs in over 500 concerts building a nationwide following for the artist who, as a teenager, was a pop music superstar in Communist Central Europe. Known then as Tajci, she abandoned her fame at age 21 and fled to the United States, where she eventually began performing in churches across America.            

“The Hampden area youth ministry hosted Tajci last year, and they were so touched by her concert. I’m excited she’s able to come to Fort Kent this year,” said Karen Ouellette, coordinator of Region I Youth Ministry.            

Her recent series of concerts saw large crowds of people drawn to music that mixed classical and pop influences and featured Tajci’s soaring voice in emotionally charged events that brought many in the audience to tears, and had others reporting they felt chills and tingling sensations in response to her music.
