If you know me, you know I LOVE the Holiday season, yes I am "that" person that starts listening to Christmas music in October, and nothing can kick off the Holiday season like the sound of Christmas music and the Salvation Army bells. On Monday night I had the wonderful opportunity of being a volunteer and greeter at the first annual "A Gathering of Angels Benefit Concert!" the concert took place at Christ Church on Old Hickory Blvd and was a free show for all those willing to come and hear some of the best Christian and Country artist in Nashville. This benefit concert featured Victory recording artist Jimmy Wayne, Belmont graduate Julie Roberts, Grammy award winning Christian artist Matthew West, and one of the most famous and successful country groups Restless Heart!
All of these artist share not only their love for music but also love for children and those less fortunate, all of these artist came together for free to raise money and awareness for the Salvation Army and to kick off the annual Christmas event, "The Angel Tree."
The Angel tree is a project that the Salvation Army adopts every year to insure that each child is given the Christmas that they deserve. I challenge you to at least adopt one angel from the angel tree so that no "angels" are forgotten this year! The Salvation Army did a wonderful job of putting this event together and making sure that everyone at the event did not leave without an open heart for such a great cause! I want to thank everyone that was there at the event last night, as well as the artist and all the volunteers without you all our community would not be what it is today!
If you are downtown MUSIC CITY on December 11, you will find me there ringing that wonderful Salvation Army bell before the Predators game! Come out and see me, and DO NOT FORGET to grab an angel this year!
