DIXON – The public is welcome to attend a free concert by singer Teddy Geiger at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 in the Mathis Theatre at Sauk Valley Community College, 173 state Route 2. The opening act will be Anna Rose.

Geiger made his debut in 2006 with his highly acclaimed album, “Underage Thinking,” reaching No. 8 on the Billboard charts.

Many may also recognize his million selling hit, “For You I Will.” He recently released his second album, “The Last Fear,” worldwide.

Outside his work as an artist, Geiger is also an in-demand songwriter, most recently for Tiesto’s “Love & Run.” He also co-wrote/co-produced “Little Black Dress” on One Direction’s 2013 album, which debuted at No. 1 in 27 countries.

Geiger also starred alongside Rainn Wilson, Christina Applegate and Emma Stone in the 2008 film, “The Rocker.”

His opening act, Anna Rose, has a performance aid to be “a mix of Jim Morrison’s sexy bravado with Brigitte Bardot’s seductive stare onstage.” She has released multiple albums.

For more information, call Ana Salgado, SVCC student activities coordinator, at 815-835-6432.
