You may know Roy Firestone as a 7-time Emmy Award-winning host of ESPN’s legendary Up Close Primetime or Public Television’s LA Tonight, interviewing over 5,000 athletes, musicians, actors and politicians. You may know Roy from his appearance in the film, Jerry Maguire, where he played himself in an unforgettable (and often repeated) scene with Academy Award-winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. And, you may know Roy from his best-selling books, Up Close with Roy Firestone and Don’t Make Me Cry, Roy. But, did you know Roy Firestone is also a critically-acclaimed performer, humorist, musician and impressionist? As one of the most sought after live performers, keynote speakers and lecturers, Roy has performed in more than 2,000 venues spanning two decades. He recently shared the stage with performers Josh Groban, Reba McEntire, David Foster, and Jon Bon Jovi.

Roy will also be joined on stage by Moore County’s own master musician, Paul Murphy.  A graduate of Pinecrest High School, Paul served in the US Army’s 82nd Airborne Band, earned his degree in music composition from UNC at Chapel Hill, his master’s degree from Duke Divinity School, and his doctorate from Hood Theological Seminary. He is currently the pastor of Trinity AME Zion Church, but remains active as a composer, arranger, performer on piano, clarinet, saxophone, and bass.
