Flom To Open Fall U-Church Series

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Lee University will welcome magician and author Justin Flom on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center to kick off the fall 2017 U-Church series. 

Review for Justin Flom:

Flom differentiates himself from traditional magic by using everyday items like cards, soda, candy, and even cellphones for the majority of his illusions. Flom shares his testimony with large crowds everywhere through the power of illusion. He has performed on “The Ellen DeGeneres” show three times, along with appearances on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the “TODAY Show,” and the “Rachel Ray Show,” among others. 

He has also starred in SyFy’s “Wizard Wars,” performed on Florida Georgia Line’s 2015 tour, and starred in several Coke commercials. Flom is currently performing throughout the United States and hosting private events for companies such as Coke, Dave Ramsey, and Walmart, to name a few. 

By utilizing social media like Snapchat, Facebook, and Instagram, Flom has been able to reach a larger audience and keep magic modern. His Snapchat was featured on Buzzfeed’s “15 Snapchat Enthusiasts That Will Inspire You To Take Better Snaps.” 

The U-Church series will continue Oct. 22 with a concert by 116 Clique members’ KB and Trip Lee. 

KB, also known as Kevin Burgess, has released a mixtape and three albums. KB has toured nationally with Tenth Avenue North and Trip Lee. 

Lee, who has spoken several times for the university’s chapel services, is a rapper and pastor. He has released five albums and authored two books. Lee’s music has been nominated for several Dove awards and three of his albums have debuted at #1 on Billboard Gospel charts. 

U-Church will conclude its fall series Nov. 12 with “An Evening with LeeU Worship.” This event is a unique worship opportunity designed and led by Lee students. Attendees often encounter diverse styles of worship, including music by LeeU Worship, spoken word, dance, art, and Communion. LeeU Worship’s debut album is set to release later this fall. 

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Lindsey Sifferman at lsifferman@leeuniversity.edu for more information on childcare.
