Connection to NarroWay Founders Goes Back 30 Years
FORT MILL, S.C. - April 11, 2018 - Twenty-five years ago, Jon Brennan was in the thick of the production season as the youngest cast member on MTV's "The Real World: Los Angeles." On Tuesday, April 17, he will lead a group of orphaned and neglected children from Uganda, Africa to the greater Charlotte area to tell their story, performing on stage as the "Sozo Children's Choir." The group performs at 7pm at the NarroWay Theatre, located just off Carowinds Boulevard at I-77 exit 90. Admission is free and contributions will go toward funding the Sozo Children's Village Project in Uganda. Tickets are available through the NarroWay website or by calling 803.802.2300.
Brennan serves as Choir Director and Pastor of Spiritual Development for Sozo Children. He has been with the organization from its start in 2010. But in 1993 he was a fair-skinned teen from Kentucky aspiring to be a country music artist. While studying at Belmont University, Brennan took a sememster off to join the cast of "The Real World" for its second season. On the show, Brennan was known for his conservative values and Christian faith.
But Brennan's real-world connection to the NarroWay Theatre goes back further than his days on the MTV show.
