Edwards is king of the stage

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Mark joins Ghost Ballerinas singer Cameron Burnette during their performance at last month's Aut 2 Be Kids group meeting. Mark will join the band on drums at 1:20 p.m. on Saturday at the I Am What I Am Music Festival.
Mark Edwards is the son of Jeanne and Ronnie Edwards of Shelbyville. Mark has little fear of the spotlight, loves the theatre, and has been playing drums for six years.

Mark Edwards performs in "Les Miserables," one of his favorite dramatic works.

Last week, Mark performed one of his favorite plays, Les Miserables in Manchester. Next weekend, he will join The Ghost Ballerinas to play a set of his favorite cover songs at the I Am What I Am Music Festival at the Bedford County Ag Center. His mom says to expect some Beatles songs, since they are his favorite band.

Oh yeah, Mark and his brother Johnathan are on the autism spectrum, making many folks' fear of the spotlight seem trivial compared to what they face each day. If you'd like to see Mark rock the drumset with The Ghost Ballerinas on Saturday, they will perform at 1:20 p.m. on Stage 3.
