Excited for this benefit concert for an orphanage in Haiti—coming up next Friday, April 5th—free admission!
About the event: (taken from its facebook event page)
Operation Vision Out (VO): Love Haiti was inspired by one of our own. A few years ago, James along with his brothers were adopted by a couple from Newberg. James recently was inspired to give back to the orphanage that cared for him and his brothers prior to their adoption. Hillside decided to help and Project VO: Love Haiti was born. Now we need your help to give back to this amazing Orphanage in Haiti.
Hillside is sponsoring a Benefit Concert for ‘His Home’ Orphanage in Delmas, Rue Cassognol, and Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for this orphanage, which will go towards making a difference for a number of children in the orphanage including costs of food, teachers, staff, nannies, educational supplies and medical treatments for a child in need.

A few months ago, I had some fun doing background vocals on a friend of a friend’s album for the song, “Come Thou Fount.” I’m always challenged by the lyrics in this song. They were written in 1758, but they are timeless and just as relevant today. Here’s Nate French’s rendition of it. I especially enjoy the guitars on this recording.
