Robert Robinson and Brother Timothy to perform “Heaven on a Saturday Night” concert May 5 in Brainerd MN

A soul stirring gospel and folk performance in an old sweet church. Gospel singer Robert Robinson and singer songwriter Brother Timothy (Frantzich) will perform a concert, “Heaven on a Saturday Night” May 5 at 7:00 p.m. in Brainerd at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 415 Juniper Street.

Gospel Great Robert Robinson and Singer Songwriter Brother Timothy Frantzich

An internationally adored singer, Robert Robinson has performed with the likes of Prince, Aretha Franklin, playing some of the country’s most prestigious music halls. Robinson may best be recognized in this area from his vocal performances with pianist Lori Line and subsequent appearances across the United States on PBS. Robinson was voted “Best Male Vocalist” by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine, and “Minnesota’s Master Male Vocalist” by the Star Tribune. Currently, Robert serves as Executive Artistic Director of the Twin Cities Community Gospel Choir.  www.robertrobinsonmusic.com

“I think music is a way of watering the dryness of an individual drought.”  Robinson says. “If I’m able to do that with my music-if I’m able to do that in a church or a bar, if I can do it in a theater, if I can do it in a prison-wherever there’s an open door of people that need it and want it, then I’m willing to go there.  Because I feel that people everywhere, no matter our status or color or anything, we’re all dry and dying from something.”  Judging from the multiple ovations he has received over his singing career, the thirst has been quenched.


Robinson will be joined by Brother Timothy Frantzich, a singer, songwriter and native Minnesotan.  Brother Timothy has traveled extensively throughout the United States and United Kingdom and has been a guest on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion and thousands of Pubs and Churches. Frantzich released his latest cd, “My Lost and Wild Daughter” in March which features Robinson on vocals.    “I first worked with Robert Robinson on a recording 10 years ago. I was in the control room of a swanky studio in Minneapolis every time he sang it made my knees weak,” says Frantzich, “he is a force of nature, simply amazing. Doing this concert in Brainerd is pure joy. Heaven… On a Saturday night.”

A portion of the ticket sales will be given to New Pathways Interfaith Hospitality Network in Brainerd.
