A Night of Music in Brentwood, TN
Instruments Of Joy had it’s first successful charity concert on March 3rd, 2017! It was located at The Well Coffeehouse in Brentwood, TN. The local artist and community involvement was profound! We are excited for what should be the start of a power series of music events held in Nashville the year. The event featured four musical artists who donated their time and
talents. The evening kicked off with an inspiring performance from singer-songwriter Becca Bradley. Becca shared a bit of her story and her heart on stage. Next up was Lamain who got the crowd participating with his energetic pop covers and fun personality. Elizabeth Mossell performed next and sung upbeat country tunes that also drew the crowd in to participate. In between performances videos were shown depicting powerful stories of those who have been impacted by Instruments of Joy. Following Elizabeth’s performance, IOJ founder Joshua MacLeod spoke about the vision for the nonprofit Instruments of Joy. He also shared the powerful story of it’s origin during his serving on music missions in Malawi. He shared how there is a wall in Malawi that divides the slums from the rest of the city. Joshua pointed out that we can life our whole lives never having to engage with poverty if we don’t want to. He admonished us to intentionally “go over to the other side of the wall” and engage with poverty. The night wrapped up with a performance by Seth Abram who had the whole audience captivated by his all original music. This event enabled us to raise enough to send three instruments to aspiring musicians in the developing world. Thank you to The Well for allowing us to make use of your amazing space and a huge thank you to the artists with hearts to give the gift of music! It was amazing to see all who came out and supported and we are grateful for your heart and charitable gifts. We’ll have an announcement soon about our next show so stay tuned!
