CHICOPEE - Singer, songwriter and guitarist David LeTellier and his band, Cottonwood, were well on their way to Nashville a few years back until he found a higher purpose for his talent.

LeTellier, a liturgical musician at his South Hadley church, St. Theresa's, has turned toward his faith and for the past two years has devoted himself entirely to composing and playing inspirational music.

Accompanied by percussionist Ed Chagnon and Joe Cirillo on bass, the trio comprise the band "The Narrow Gate," performing "Hope and Healing" concerts throughout the area.

LeTellier will perform another in a series of inspirational concerts, a "Hope and Healing Benefit Concert" for victims of sexual abuse as well as victims of clergy sexual abuse in the Diocese of Springfield. The concert will be held on April 30 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at St. Stanislaus Bishop and Martyr Basilica on Front Street. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.
