REUNION RECORDS artist BRANDON HEATH held a benefit show last night (3/2) to raise money for TENNESSEE tornado victims. The benefit concert raised $18,690 and committed 85 volunteers to join the clean-up effort. Other artists involved in the benefit were BEBO NORMAN, JASON INGRAM, CHRISTY NOCKELS and special appearance by MICHAEL W. SMITH. All the funds collected will go directly to the MACON COUNTY disaster relief fund administered by the BLEDSOE BAPTIST ASSOCIATION.
"I am blown away by the response of the community. It was great to have my friends there on stage with me, as well as in the audience. To see people wanting to reach out to their neighbors, not only responding financially, but wanting to give of themselves physically by signing up to go into the destruction and help rebuild was amazing!" said HEATH.
