Caroline 'Lacy C.' Fraser performs Hallelujah" during the Okotoks Food Bank Christmas Concert at the Evangelical Free Church on Dec. 15. The performance was a tribute to her late father and longtime concert organizer John Fraser, with whom Caroline performed the song each year. Backup vocals this year were provided by fellow musician Mike King while John's guitar rested to the side of the stage.

The annual Okotoks Food Bank Christmas Concert made an in-person return with a lineup of familiar faces complemented by newcomers.

Taking place at the Evangelical Free Church on Dec. 14-15, the concert was also recorded by a professional camera crew and is now available online for streaming.

The concert will also pay tribute to longtime organizer John Fraser, who passed away in August. Present on the lineup was daughter Caroline 'Lady C.' Fraser who, as in past years, performed Hallelujah, this time with her father's guitar resting quietly to the side of the stage.

Tickets to view the virtual recording are $20 each and can be purchased at https://bit.ly/3IiBBjN

As with last year, tickets are being given for free to seniors living in long-term care.
