About ìLove Your Neighborî
The "Love Your Neighbor" event is an annual free benefit concert, born out of the hearts of Christian music leaders Brandon Heath and Jason Ingram, to support local needs within the Nashville and surrounding communities. Over the last five years, a variety of beneficiaries have been helped by the show. In 2008, $20,000 was raised for Nashville area tornado victims. In 2009, David, a local Centennial High School student, lost his father, his health insurance, and was at risk of losing his vision without access to a necessary eye surgery. "Love Your Neighbor" covered the total cost of the medical attention David needed and his vision was restored. In 2010, more than $61,000 was collected for El Shaddai Church in south Nashville that was severely damaged by flooding. In 2011, gathering raised more than $25,000 for the Lee family who was affected by the devastating tornadoes in Alabama. Last year's event raised more than $14,000 for Young Life Capernaum, an outreach for students with physical and mental disabilities.
