FARMINGTON — Jim Felix, an evangelist gospel rocker from the Cree Nation of Canada in Saskatchewan, will bring the spirit of the season to Farmington Saturday.

Before he raises the roof at the Totah Theater Saturday night, Felix, who struts on stage like Elvis and speaks of the power of his faith, will drop by San Juan Plaza to lay hands on fans and sing a song or two.

Felix will stop by Native Pride, a Farmington T-shirt shop at 3030 E. Main St., unit X3. At 4 p.m., he will greet fans and sign CDs, including his latest release, "Keep the Faith."

He is also scheduled to perform at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Totah Theater, 315 W. Main St. Tickets are $7 at the door.

Felix has written more than 80 inspirational songs and recorded 17 albums in 30 years of touring with a live band, preaching his faith along the way, according to his website, hesaliveministry.com. His albums, "Keep the Faith" and "Contagious" have each been nominated at the Native American Music Awards.

Native Pride owner Jasper Joe said Felix's Christian-based releases are top sellers in his store.

"Gospel music is big around here," Joe said. "I've been selling a lot of gospel and Christian music CDs, so I added a few Christian T-shirts recently, including one that reads, 'The family that prays together, stays together.' It will really be a privilege to have (Felix) here."
