Students share their hearts and talents at Haiti benefit concert

 In response to the devastation in Haiti, the Student Activities Board quickly put together a benefit concert on Jan. 23 called “Music & Words for Haiti.” The three-hour concert featured students, faculty, staff and alumni with talents ranging from singing and rap to prophetic words and testimonies. 

Those in attendance were encouraged to give a $2 minimum donation cover-charge, with proceeds going directly to The Evangelical Association for the Promotion of Education and Beyond Borders. The total amount raised, including the change collected at the Flash Dance,  reached about $700.

 

 

Other performers included:  Sista Rose, Taking Motion (grad student Anna Simon and her husband Jeremy), music faculty member Ron Lipscomb on the cello, words from senior Ruth Portnoff who spent two months in Haiti during the summer, a prayer from Angeley Crawford, PAWS, sophomore Shaant Shishmanian, testimonies from the recent Haiti trip, first year Sean Cox and his band and the Filthy 42’s, featuring senior Andy Darby, who recently returned from a trip to Haiti, on drums.
