McCaulley to sing at Rockwell City church Sunday

ROCKWELL CITY – A former school superintendent who recently released a CD of Christian music will perform Sunday evening in Rockwell City.

The Doc McCaulley concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 527 Main St. Admission is free.

The show will feature music along with stories about becoming a Christian and keeping daily faith based on the experiences of McCaulley and others.

McCaulley, whose actual first name is Randy, is from Perry. He is the former superintendent of the Perry Community School District and is now retired from a 33-year career in education.

Last year he released his first CD of Christian music called ”Until He Returns.”

However, his music career started in the 1970s when he played keyboard and sang in what he describes as ”weekend rock bands.” Later, he would occasionally perform as a soloist at community events, church services, weddings and funerals.

In the early 2000s, he performed as part of a praise band at the church he attended.

Now he performs at churchs across Iowa. He performs his own songs and other contemporary Christian songs.

When he is performing his own songs live, he uses backing tracks from his CD with the goal of sounding nearly the same as he does on the album.

His original songs include the instrumental ”Blue Skies on a New Day.” McCaulley has said he liked the way that song sounded with instruments only, so he never wrote any lyrics for it. ”Angels,” written in 2016, is his newest original song.
