Jo Dee Messina Concert to Benefit Harvest Hands
Jo Dee Messina is helping the less fortunate this season by giving back with a free concert, benefiting a non-profit, faith-based organization in Nashville that promotes healthy living, spiritual formation, education and economic development.
Jo Dee's concert and discussion -- "Inspirational Evening of Words and Music with Jo Dee Messina" -- will include Jo Dee playing requests, chatting with fans and discussing her journey of faith.
"We see God in miracles, but people overlook him in all the small stuff," Jo Dee told the Boot. "Just in the moment when I thought God was not around, he showed up right in front of me ... You just have to take your head out of your butt and open your eyes. God's here, he's everywhere."
Those who attend her 7:00 PM show Saturday, Dec. 4 at Brentwood (Tenn.) United Methodist Church are asked to donate a "love offering" for the Harvest Hands Community Development Corporation, a non-profit, faith-based organization in Nashville. This is the second such concert Jo Dee has hosted to aid the group. Last year's show raised about $30,000 for the charity.
Those that run Harvest Hands have inspired Jo Dee with their work within the inner city. "I feel so blessed to be able to help folks give to the Harvest Hands," Jo Dee says. "And I'm grateful that Brentwood United Methodist Church is again, this year, facilitating the cause."
