(Newton, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents A John Denver Christmas! on Sunday, December 8th at 3:00 pm. Ted Vigil returns to the Newton Theatre to charm us once again with his passionate tribute to John Denver. 

A John Denver Christmas! will celebrate the holidays with the beloved songs of the Rocky Mountain troubadour. Cherished songs such as Rocky Mountain High, Annie's Song, Sunshine on My Shoulder and all of Denver's hits will be featured during the show, as well as some of the holiday season's best loved songs. Ted's uncanny physical and vocal resemblance to Denver will leave the audience inspired once again by the musical legacy of John Denver!

Ted Vigil has always had a love of music and the stage. The Seattle native began singing for audiences at an early age. He started in the church folk band at age eight, and continued singing in musical productions in high school. In 2006 Ted won the national title for "Talent Quest" in Laughlin Nevada. After his win he created his John Denver Tribute show. A highlight of his career, in 2010 Ted performed with John Denver's Lead guitarist "Steve Weisberg".

In a very short time Ted developed this tribute into a national act. He performs all over the country including the John Denver Festival and The CMA Fan Fair Festival in Nashville, among many other venues. His gift for the music and his polished and energetic performing style have earned him many dedicated fans. The most heard comments after his shows are, "I can't believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver!"

Like Denver, Ted shares his passion for bringing people together with his music, drawing in audiences of all ages. His love for people, family, and communities working together for great causes, continue to be his main inspiration.
