BRANDON HEATH HOSTS FIFTH ANNUAL ìLOVE YOUR NEIGHBORî EVENT BENEFITTING YOUNG LIFE CAPERNAUM

More Than $14,000 Raised to Aid Students with Physical and Mental Disabilities

(Nashville, Tenn.) May 23, 2012 ñ Award-winning singer/songwriter, Brandon Heath, assembled friends Jason Ingram, Bebo Norman,
Gabe Scott and Christopher Williams for the fifth annual ìLove Your Neighborî benefit concert last night; an event Heath started with renowned producer and songwriter Ingram in May 2008. The show was held at Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, Tenn. and raised more than $14,000 for Young Life Capernaum, an outreach for students with physical and mental disabilities.

In attendance were more than 75 local Young Life Capernaum students including Katie Harbison, who joined Heath and friends on stage to share YLCís impact on her life and perform a song from a worship CD she recorded, whose sales will directly cover Capernaum camp fees for one of her friends. Harbisonís performance generated a much deserved standing ovation.

To date, the five ìLove Your Neighborî events have raised more than $140,000 benefitting community needs. Heath and Ingram have promised a "sixth annual" event to take place next spring. For details on next year's event, when it's announced, follow the event's twitter @luvyourneighbor and Facebook page www.facebook.com/LoveYourNeighbor.
