William Beckmann - Las Posadas Tour with special guest Delaney Ramsdell
Join us for Texas crooner William Beckmann’s 2023 Las Posadas Tour. This seven city special set of performances will be an intimate night of Christmas music, Spanish songs, storytelling and select Beckmann originals. 100% of VIP package sales will be donated to The Miracle League of San Antonio, a charitable organization that provides children with mental and/or physical challenges an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league.
“This Las Posadas Tour meant so much to everyone involved in 2022 we knew we had to bring it back this year. I’ve had the unique opportunity to work privately with The Miracle League Of San Antonio for several years and see the incredible opportunities they provide for children. They embody the perfect blend of family and community coming together to show kindness which is ultimately what the spirit of Posada celebrations are all about.” - William Beckmann
Hailing from the small border town of Del Rio, TX, William Beckmann was raised on classic country as well as the mariachi and Norteño sounds of northern Mexico. He delivers a fresh blend of vintage country, Americana and Latin music with a timeless baritone and an old soul maturity that belies his youth. After capturing the attention of elder statesmen like Randy Rogers and fellow Del Rio native Radney Foster, he relocated to Nashville where he signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell.
Beckmann’s 2022 album Faded Memories, featuring the slow-burn single “Bourbon Whiskey” and the haunting “In The Dark” garnered praise from press including American Songwriter, CMT and more. "Damn This Heart Of Mine" and "Tennessee Drinkin", the two singles from his 2023 follow up album "Here's To You. Here's To Me." were consecutive #1 songs at Texas Regional Radio Chart and amassed even more accolades from including Saving Country Music, Whiskey Riff and Billboard. He has amassed an incredible fanbase, independently garnering more 670,000 followers on TikTok and over 16 million streams. He has spent the last year year supporting acts like Parker McCollum, Randy Rogers Band and Wade Bowen on tour as well as selling out his own headline shows including five at legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX.
ABOUT MIRACLE LEAGUE OF SAN ANTONIO:
“The Miracle League of San Antonio” is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization that provides children with mental and/or physical challenges an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league. There is something about playing the game of baseball that lights up youngsters’ eyes, but for children facing mental and physical challenges, that opportunity can often be a difficult first step. The Miracle League gives these children the opportunity to get out in the sunshine and enjoy playing the game of baseball in its purest form.
Dylan can’t walk but that doesn’t stop him from rounding second base. Jennifer has Downs-Syndrome, but the Miracle League has given her more self-esteem that her parents ever dreamed possible. Kaliegh can’t hear, but the cheers of his teammates have never been louder. The Miracle League gives hundreds of disabled children something few dreamed possible, the chance to play baseball. Yet in all their joy and triumph, there’s still one thing missing – the ability to play the sport like everyone else.
These kids needed a place to play, so a specially equipped field called the “ Mays Family Field of Dreams” was built in San Antonio, Texas. This custom-designed venue incorporates a cushioned synthetic turf that accommodates wheelchairs and other walking assistance devices, while helping prevent injuries. In other words, it provides a level-playing field where physically and mentally challenged children can hit, run, and catch – just like the best of them.
During each Miracle League game, every child is given an opportunity to hit the ball and score a run. Miracle League team members are assigned “buddies” who assist them in hitting the ball and “running” the bases. Buddies can be fellow schoolmates, parents, college students, business leaders or anyone who wishes to volunteer his time to give a child the gift of baseball.
