A Triangle-area minister and Christian musician will headline an April 4 concert in Rocky Mount sponsored by Englewood Baptist Church and the North Roanoke Baptist Association.

Matt Papa will perform at the 6:30 p.m. show at Englewood Baptist, 1350 S. Winstead Ave., a release says.

Opening the concert will be Cloverton, a four-man Manhattan-based Christian band.

Papa, a singer, songwriter worship leader and musician at The Summit Church in Durham, is touring to promote his new album, “Look & Live.”

“Throughout the album, Papa explores the human struggle between idolatry and worship,” says his website, mattpapa.com. “The album opens and closes with philosophical bookends, with the Gospel illuminating the center.”

“My hope is that as you journey through the album looking toward the glory of God, your heart is satisfied and you end up in that place where you don’t need the world anymore,” Papa says on the website.

Cloverton came to fame through the Rock the Camp competition held by TobyMac and Camp Electric, the release says. The group then had the most downloaded song in KLOVE radio’s history with “Take Me Into Beautiful.”

Tickets, which admit two people, are $5 and are available at itickets.com, englewoodbaptist.com, Englewood Baptist’s office and the association’s office, 3856 N. Halifax Road, Rocky Mount.
