Music pioneer Leon Patillo will present a free concert at 6 p.m. March 6 at First Christian Church, 2211 Mouton Dr., Carson City. An offering will be taken.

The singer/songwriter is perhaps best known for being the lead vocalist for Santana, one of the most seminal acts of the rock 'n' roll landscape.

Patillo now uses his voice, motivating gifts and music for festivals, churches, special functions, corporations, radio and TV hosting. He's had lots of success and visibility with gold and platinum albums, crossing all age groups and ethnic boundaries.

Recently he's focused on concerts and inspiring others through his music. He shares a message called "You Can Begin Again," which helps many to have a new starting point for their lives and gives them hope and encouragement.

This year, Patillo will partner with the City Impact Center, which is a community outreach in the heart of Las Vegas that empowers and equips youths to better themselves and their families.
