BEC RECORDINGS artist BEBO NORMAN auctioned his personal EVERETT LAUREL guitar on EBAY to raise money for HAITI. The auction closed on FRIDAY (1/22) with a closing price of $51,100. All funds will be going to COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL for HAITI relief.
“I don’t have the words to explain how overwhelmed I’ve been by this entire process from the initial response of TWITTERERS who really inspired this in the first place to the BEC publicity and radio teams who hit it out of the park, to the extreme willingness of radio stations all over the country to support it in any way they could," said NORMAN.
"The final results of the auction absolutely blew the doors off any expectations I could have ever dreamed of with such generosity from the bidders and the overabundance of God. Obviously, this was not at all about a guitar, but instead was such a beautiful picture of the body of Christ actually being the body of Christ, using whatever gifts they have at their disposal to serve the people in HAITI that are so desperately in need.”
