What a great idea to make a charity concert available worldwide!
To help raise funds for the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, a group of Christian musicians have gathered together to put on a benefit concert called Together in Texas. The best part of this effort is that it is open to anyone and everyone with a Facebook account. That’s right, the concert will be streamed on Facebook live through any of the participating artist’s Facebook feeds.
The concert will take place at 8:00PM tonight, August 31, and will feature some of the biggest names in the industry, including: Matt Maher, Mandisa, Mark Hall, Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp, Travis Greene, and more.
All proceeds from the event will go to Convoy of Hope, a faith-based, non profit organization that is already on the ground in Houston. Convoy of Hope mobilizes tens of thousands of volunteers each year in effort to bring food, water, and emergency supplies to areas in need. They partner with churches, businesses, individuals, and other humanitarian organizations who seek to do good among the impoverished and suffering.
