“This will be a great night out for the whole family,” said Harden, 16, who will give the audience a preview of his unfinished album, “Legend in the Making,” scheduled for release this summer.
Opening acts will be Breaking Barriers of Valley, and Fiction to Friction of Auburn, Ala. Admission is $6.
Harden’s first release, an eight-song EP called “ShowTime,” is available on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and other online sites. He and other artists record in his home studio on Englewood Drive.
“I was 10 years old when my two older brothers used to take me to a table in the back room and start tapping on the table and make me rap,” he said. “I’ve always loved music.”
The son of Stan and Tracy Harden, he has a speaking role in the upcoming Nicholas Cage movie thriller, “The Hungry Rabbit Jumps,” which was shot in New Orleans early last year and is scheduled for release this summer. He got an audition after rapping at a talent showcase in Atlanta in 2009.
Harden’s scene required four 12-hour days. He plays a student of Cage’s character who becomes involved in a vigilante group after his wife gets killed.
Harden, who has taken acting classes, wants to continue making movies in addition to music.
He performed at last year’s “Back to School Bash” with Elijah Kelley at Callaway Stadium, as well as numerous Christian youth outreaches in Georgia and Alabama.
