"I'm thrilled to produce a show with such a diverse group of artists and talent for such a worthy cause," said Regina Edmondson-Wilson, Show Producer/Director. "This is so rare and exciting! The strength of Nashville's music community is enormous."
Proceeds will be given to one local charity (Operation Stand Down) and a local child undergoing cancer treatment.
Operation Stand Down (OSD) diligently serves our veterans and homeless population by providing housing, food, education, and other social services. A United Way Partner Agency, it operates programs that train and support veterans to help them merge back into the community as responsible and contributing citizens. If you would like more information on Operation Stand Down, its mission, goals, and services, please go to www.osdnashville.org.
"We appreciate the support of our service men, women and their families and are proud to contribute the proceeds from this fabulous show to Operation Stand Down to support its commitment to help honorably discharged veterans who face homelessness after service to our country," said Sharon Hill, Event Coordinator. "We are also pleased to support one of our young patients with a portion of the proceeds to help her in her struggle to defeat cancer."
The other recipient is two-year-old Emma Taylor. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Vanderbilt Children Hospital for a rare form of cancer that has spread to her kidney and lymph nodes. Through all of this, Emma continues to burst with vibrancy and is especially happy when playing with her dolls, watching her favorite Disney video "The Jungle Book," or dancing to music.
The show will be held Saturday, November 21, 2009, at 4:00 PM at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church (Antioch), Murfreesboro Road. Tickets are $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for children 12 and under. For fans, an autograph session will be held immediately after the show.
