Brandon Heath and Toby Mac will share the stage together for the annual “Love Your Neighbor” benefit show to raise funds for a specific need in the local community. Also Joining them will be Mandisa and highly-acclaimed songwriter and Dove-winning Producer of the Year, Jason Ingram. Hosted by Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, Tenn., this year’s event will be Tuesday, May 28, at 7 p.m. All proceeds will go to New Hope Academy, a privately-funded pre-Kindergarten thru sixth grade school in Franklin, Tenn., which exists to serve low-income families with free tuition for its classical education.
Heath and Ingram created “Love Your Neighbor” in May 2008, and the annual event has raised more than $140,000 for Nashville and surrounding area needs.
As demonstrated by Heath’s involvement with “Love Your Neighbor,” his new single which released to radio recently, “Love Does,” carries a message of love in action. Heath wrote the song to celebrate his mentor, Bob Goff who authored a book with the same name.
Heath explains, “Love is action, it literally transforms people. If we are not in the action of loving on a daily basis, and learning what love is and isn’t in those actions, then I think we are missing out on what life is.”
