Each summer Union University hosts the Senior Adult Extravaganza, an event designed to provide the senior adults of West Tennessee and the Mid-South an evening of fun and fellowship. This year’s program is going to be quite exciting with Wes Hampton as our musician for the evening.
Wes Hampton grew up with a love for music and attended Trevecca Nazarene and the University of Alabama in Birmingham where he received his B.A. in psychology and minor in music. While in Birmingham, Wes was part of the worship staff at a local church for seven years until he accepted the tenor position for the Gaither Vocal Band in June 2005.
Wes’s first project with the Gaither Vocal Band, Give it Away, won three Dove Awards from the GMA in 2007 for best southern gospel song of the year, best southern gospel record of the year, and best long form video of the year. Wes released his first solo album in September of 2010, titled A Man Like Me. He lives in Birmingham, Alabama with his wife Andrea, and their four sons.
