2014 MUSIC WITH A MISSION BENEFIT FOR NASHVILLE RESCUE MISSION TO FEATURE CELEBRATED ENTERTAINERS
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12, AT 7 P.M., AT SCHERMERHORN SYMPHONY CENTER
NASHVILLE, Tenn., August 11, 2014—Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, Steve and Rudy, along with the GRAMMY® award-winning Nashville Symphony, will host this year’s “Music With A Mission” on Sunday, October 12, 2014, at 7 p.m. at the beautiful Schermerhorn Symphony Center. This annual event benefits and raises awareness for Nashville Rescue Mission, which serves more than 2,000 meals per day to the hungry and homeless in the Nashville community.
Larry Gatlin explains, “As a recovering alcoholic, the men and women at the Mission mean a lot to me. One of my heart’s desires is to help them on their journey. I believe the ‘Music With A Mission’ concert is going to do just that…On second thought, they will be helping this old alcoholic on my journey. KEEP THE FAITH.”
Restless Heart hosted the first “Music With A Mission” concert in 2010. This talented group of musicians continued to grow the event with their support and energy for the next two years. Glenn Cranfield, Nashville Rescue Mission president and chief executive officer, says, “We will be ever grateful for their dedication to making this event such a success.”
In addition to the Gatlins, scheduled performers include country-recording artist Tracy Lawrence; Lynda Carter, singer, film and television star, who played the role of “Wonder Woman”; the Beegie Adair Trio, highly regarded jazz-recording musicians; Chip Esten, comedian, actor and singer, known for his role as “Deacon” in ABC’s hit drama, “Nashville”; The Henningsens, a family trio of musicians and songwriters; The Willis Clan, of ABC’s “America’s Got Talent” fame, a family of musicians, dancers, athletes, writers and artists; and Jesse Lee Jones, owner of Robert’s Western World and the leader of its house band, Brazilbilly.
“Nashville Rescue Mission and the men, women and children who benefit from our programs and services are grateful to receive such tremendous support from Nashville’s entertainment community,” states Cranfield. “Last year’s event raised over $200,000, and we are sure to top that amount with this year’s event. The Mission offers so much more than just a meal to those in need. In order for hearts to be open to change, we must first meet the physical needs of the people we serve. It is in meeting their most basic needs we give them hope for today. But it doesn’t stop there. As individuals see and experience increased opportunities, relational support, improved situations and genuine joy, hope begins to take root. Through the Mission’s Life Recovery Program, educational classes, job training and counseling, students find there is hope for tomorrow.”
He concludes, “Finally, we offer everyone who enters our doors hope for eternity. As hope is restored and relationships are mended, we seek to show the everlasting benefits of a life lived in service to the One
who restores and renews. We are so thankful to everyone who plays a role in helping us meet the needs of those coming to us for help.”
Jim Gray will conduct the Nashville Symphony, and Nashville Rescue Mission’s very own choir will also share their musical talents on stage. WSMV-TV anchor Demetria Kalodimos will act as master of ceremony. Wendell Sanders and The Fowler Group of Raymond James are Presenting Sponsors.
All of the “Music With A Mission” performers are donating their time and talent to the event, with proceeds benefiting Nashville Rescue Mission. The Schermerhorn Symphony Center is located at One Symphony Place, Nashville, TN 37201.
