Zach Williams is getting ready to transform the Montgomery Performing Arts Center into a house of worship on April 12, with an almost sold out concert.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Williams said. “We’re hoping to reach some people coming to this show who need an encounter with God that night.”

Montgomery is pretty close to a homecoming concert for Williams. Although he was raised in Jonesboro, Arkansas, the two-time Grammy winner was born in nearby Pensacola, Florida.

If you’ve seen Williams live before, he said to expect a new experience with the addition of a horn section and backup singers to his band. He’ll be performing some of his new music from him from a deluxe set CD, and some old favorites.

While expressing faith is difficult for some, Williams doesn’t feel chained by those kinds of restraints when singing or speaking. Williams said talking about it is a good way to open the door to people facing their own challenges. He knows more than a little about those kinds of challenges.

“I lived a completely different life before becoming a Christian artist,” Williams said. “I played rock bands and traveled around. I made a lot of bad decisions and lived a pretty reckless life. Ever since I gave my life to the Lord in 2012, that’s been a way for me to talk about Jesus is by sharing my struggles in my past and telling them what God can do.”

Life was a winding path for young Williams, who left high school and earned his GED while working for his dad in construction.

“My dad led worship growing up as a kid,” Williams said. “I was around music, but I went to school on a basketball scholarship.”

At 19 during his freshman season at college, he tore the ligaments in his ankle.
