'Idol' singer's concert will benefit Envision

Scott MacIntyre, the visually impaired singer who inspired fans when he competed on "American Idol's" eighth season, will perform in Wichita on Thursday to raise money for Envision, a local organization that helps people who are blind or have low vision.

MacIntyre will sing during a concert that starts at 8 p.m. at the Orpheum, 200 N. Broadway. Following the concert, MacIntyre will answer audience questions.

He'll also speak at Envision's annual employee awards banquet earlier that day.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Envision Child Development program, which provides early intervention services to children born and living with visual impairments.

MacIntyre was born with visual impairment and now has about a 2 percent field of vision.

VIP tickets are $60 and must be reserved by calling 316-841-7334.
