NASHVILLE native and REUNION RECORDS artist BRANDON HEATH and songwriter and 2010 GMA DOVE AWARD Producer of the Year JASON INGRAM raised $61,857 for NASHVILLE area flood victims during their third annual “LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR” concert on TUESDAY, MAY 18th. This year's proceeds will go to the rebuilding efforts of EL SHADDAI CHRISTIAN CHURCH, a Hispanic church in SOUTH NASHVILLE devastated by the flood.
The free-with-donation show attracted a standing-room only crowd at FELLOWSHIP BIBLE CHURCH in BRENTWOOD, TN. The show was also streamed live online. The night featured performances by TOBYMAC, MIKE DONEHEY of TENTH AVENUE NORTH, BRITT NICOLE, HEATH, INGRAM and special unannounced guest AMY GRANT.
"More than a benefit, it felt like a big family piled into the living room to share songs, stories and all that we have. I’m immensely grateful for the generosity of NASHVILLE and those watching online. Above all, God was glorified and our neighbors were loved," said HEATH.
