2019 Sundays in the Garden Summer Series.

Artists: Al Bettis Music wsg: Jill Govan
Brewery: Perrin Brewing Company
Nonprofit: SOS Community Services


Al Bettis - Some label him as "Acoustic Soul," others as "Indie Folk," but what all can agree on is the undeniable gifting that's displayed once he hits the stage. His style is soothing, yet polished which makes it hard to believe he began singing and writing music at age 30.

Originating from Detroit, Al Bettis has opened for such artists as Valerie June, Dwele and Leon Timbo. He has also been featured at the acclaimed Ford Arts, Beats and Eats, Detroit River Days, Radio One, The Michigan State Fair, Meridian Winter Blast, CBS Eye On Detroit, WXYZ News, and iHeart/Mix 92.3 FM to name a few.

Jill Govan - Born and raised in Motown Detroit, an epicenter for music innovation, singer-songwriter Jill Govan brings a fresh perspective to soul music. Jill's eclectic sound blends sultry vocals, compelling stories, and acoustic-driven grooves reminiscent of great artists like Lauryn Hill, John Legend and Norah Jones.

Growing up in the church, Jill began singing in the youth choir and writing songs at age 11. She rounded out her talent when she picked up the guitar as a 19 year old student at Wayne State University. Since then, Jill has honed her gifts performing at venues across Metro Detroit and Georgia including opening for Kierra Sheard, Christon Gray, and Grammy award winning artist LeCrae.
