Those Canaan Days

My auntie Robin came up to St. George after Christmas to spend some time with us and to celebrate her 50th Birthday. While attending church, she noticed in the program that John Canaan (pronounced Can-Ann) was scheduled to give a free concert at the historic St. George Tabernacle. Since he was a bit of a superstar within the greater Utah-Idaho area in the 80's, my aunt was pretty excited to go and see him. This particular concert was focused on the holidays, though he is most well know for his song "What If I Loved You". Listening to this song, his voice may or may not sound familiar to you. He was the one that sung Michael McLean's song "You're Not Alone." Here's a video montage someone put together featuring this song. Such a great Tenor voice!

He was such a great guy and so happy to greet everyone after the concert. After we met the star of the show, my Mom gave us a Barbara-guided tour all around the Tabernacle. Here's some pictures of us in the balcony of the Tabernacle and on the "Historic Steep Steps."While I was typing this post I had a flashback to when a friend took me to see "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." Here's what popped into my head:


  1. ha ha... I love Joseph! And that is a beautiful building. Glad you got to go to an awesome concert.

  2. Psuedo 80s mormon celebrities are awesome.
