Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster is embarking on an extensive North American tour  with a performance planned for the  Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts on October 25, 2021. The tour, An Intimate Evening with David Foster: Hitman Tour, is an extension of his highly successful and sold-out 2019 tour.

Foster, who is one of the biggest musical forces of our time, created this jaw-dropping musical extravaganza that includes the greatest hits of his career. Thrilling, humorous and refreshingly honest, David Foster performs songs he wrote or produced from his four decades of hits and includes fascinating storytelling about the songs, artists, and moments of his life. Delivered by powerhouse performers, the hits include Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me,” Whitney Houston’s “The Bodyguard,” Earth Wind and Fire’s “After The Love Is Gone,” Chicago’s ”You’re The Inspiration,” Josh Groban’s “You Raise Me Up,” Michael Bublé’s “Home,” Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable,” and many more.

Joining the 16-time Grammy Award-winning writer/producer this time around will be singer/actress Katharine McPhee. Katharine joins David fresh off her Broadway and West End run of the hit Broadway musical Waitress. Katharine will join David for a number of his well-known songs including The Prayer.

KCPBS’ Raising Readers Presents: When Do Multicultural Young Children First Experience Prejudice and Racial Issues? @ Virtual Event
Mar 31 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Kansas clock hours are pending.  

Although we strive for diversity and inclusion in our current day nation and world – racism, and prejudices still plague us heavily. Our nation is still steeped in negative beliefs, mindsets, and actions that stagnate progress and growth amongst humankind. These relationships between different ethnicities and cultures continue to suffer. But most importantly, how does this continued dedication to separatism and biases affect young children? How does it affect their social/emotional and physical development and overall school life? This workshop will dig deep to find answers to these questions while offering research-based analogies and education, life experience testimonies while discussing what we all can do to create a culturally competent life for children that is built on equity, inclusion, objectivity, and love.
