Susan Belk is a force to be reckoned with! Despite all kinds of setbacks and stumbling blocks she is bringing this event to fruition as promised ... better than originally planned. Let's help Susan spread the word and make this fundraiser a huge success! ~~Webmaster
I've been a songwriter for 39 years. I had some success with a couple of songs on Nashville Star in '07, when the Hackers (Angela & Zac) won.
Last year, I co-founded a charity made up of songwriters, to put on concerts to help the tornado torn south. Just because the damage isn't in the media anymore doesn't mean the problem has gone away.
It will take an estimated 5 years for people to put their lives back together from the April 2011 storms, and here we are entering tornado season again.
We will hold a spring concert benefit in Florence Alabama. This will fund relief for Hackelburg Alabama school students. Some big name songwriters have committed to us. This will be an in-the-round type, all acoustic show, in keeping with songwriter tradition. Would you or someone you know care to help us out and spread the word? This is an all day event.
The date is set for May 12, 2012
FloBama Restaurant and Music Hall
311 N Court Street
Florence, AL 35630
We do this in the spirit of helping our neighbors, not so we can be in the spotlight. FloBama is a family friendly venue, with the best acoustics of any venue in the Shoals area. The building and stage was designed to be a songwriter's showcase with sound system and sound engineer to run it! What could be better?
