Joan Osborne “brings it on home” to The Birchmere


“What if God was one of us?” Joan Osborne asked in her 1995 hit. Since then, she’s gone on to tour with the Motown band the Funk Brothers, including appearing in the band’s 2002 documentary film Standing In The Shadows of Motown, and supporting the Dixie Chicks a year later. Now, she’s touring on the Bring It On Home tour. Wednesday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m. The Birchmere, 3701 Mount Vernon Ave., Alexandria. Tickets are $35. Call 703-549-7500 or visit
