James Otto is coming to Perham Hall at The Old Warehouse this Sunday night in the heart of Zillah.

Otto is a CMA and ACM award-winning, two-time Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and has his own hits. But what about songs that you might not know that James had a hand in?

    Purple Rain

    Prince and James Otto seems like a stretch, but once you hear James Otto sing "Purple Rain," you'll get goosebumps. James performed the song on Big D and Bubba right after Prince passed, and his rendition blew folks away -- so much so that Rolling Stone magazine picked up the video and featured it on their website.
