“This year’s Songwriters Night may look a bit different than what we envisioned when we began planning it in the fall, but two things remain unchanged: a lineup of incredible talent and a critical need for community support,” said Harriet Schiftan, president and CEO of Gilda’s Club Middle Tennessee, in a news release. “Because of COVID-19, individuals experiencing cancer are feeling more vulnerable and isolated than ever. Coming together virtually–uniting for this cause–will not only help us raise needed funds, but also allow us to connect as a community.”
Viewers can watch the benefit show featuring award-winning songwriters Greg Barnhill, Dennis Matkosky and Erin Enderlin on Facebook Live. Songwriters Night will be hosted by music industry veteran Justin Levenson, according to the release.
“I personally experienced the power of Gilda’s Club after being diagnosed with brain cancer at age 35," Levenson said. "The love and support that radiates from their ‘clubhouse’ was—and is—life changing. As we all know, today more than ever, life can throw us a curve ball at any time. We must support organizations like Gilda’s Club that are always there to meet us where we are, ready to wrap their supportive arms around us and hold space for us as we grow, heal and love.”
