A few weeks may have passed, but Compassion International hasn’t forgotten about Haiti. Not even close.
One month following the 7.1 earthquake that struck Haiti, an all-star cast of musicians is gathering for “Help Haiti Live,” a two-city ticketed concert event taking place on February 27 to benefit Compassion’s Haiti disaster relief fund. The concerts will be ticketed and also streamed live at HelpHaitiLive.com.
Check out this list of performers:
- Alison Krauss & Union Station (featuring Jerry Douglas)
- Amy Grant
- Big Kenny
- Mat Kearney
- Jars of Clay
- Rebecca St. James
- Brandon Heath
Cool, right? These musicians and a to-be-announced special headliner will participate in two concert events, live from Los Angeles at the historic Wiltern Theater and at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium. All talent and production fees have been donated, along with streaming services (Livestream.com), allowing proceeds to go toward Compassion’s disaster relief fund.
Tickets for each event will range in price from $25-75 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster locations. And if you don’t happen to be in LA or Nashville this weekend, you can watch the whole thing online for free. (Or for a donation. Your choice.)
All net proceeds from Help Haiti Live will go to Compassion International’s Haiti disaster relief fund. All money raised in response to the Haiti earthquake will be used immediately to re-equip Compassion’s local support structure and to provide for the immediate needs of Compassion-assisted children and families.
Compassion has been meeting the physical and spiritual needs of Haitians for more than forty years and will continue to serve them in this time of extreme need. Already Compassion International has supplied more than 15,000 families with clean water, food, blankets, temporary shelter, medical supplies and counseling. Donations will lay bricks, feed, educate, clothe, heal and rebuild Haiti for many months to come in Jesus’ name.
So, what are YOU doing this Saturday night?
