Are you a fan of The Voice? On Friday, December 9, international musician and Voice veteran Javier Colon will be performing at the Brew at 6 p.m. The Brew is the coffee shop and lounge area located on the fourth floor of the Gerber Center (3435 9 1/2 Ave, Rock Island).

Colon has been a contestant on The Voice and won the first season. He has four albums released titled: “Javier,” “Left of Center,” “Come Through For You,” and “Gravity.” He also has a Christmas album titled “A Very Acoustic Christmas” that is a digital download.

Prior to that, Colon was lead singer in The Derek Truck’s Band. He toured with them for two years before leaving to pursue a solo career, which led to his first two albums.

“His music is the music you’d sit around a campfire and drink coffee to,” said Maddie Witt, the organizer of this event.
