It is hard to believe that five years have passed since the founding of Alicia's Voice, and the recent milestone of helping our 1,000th victim escape from a potentially deadly environment & proceed to find a life filled with love & hope. A year after Kathy Newlove forged the idea of Alicia's Voice into a reality a group of us started the Alicia's Voice Free Community Concert. It is our effort to continue the awareness to domestic violence & give back to the community that so graciously supports our efforts with their giving through our many events. Even though we will encourage donations throughout the day this concert is 100% free.
The local music community has continually supported us with their talents asking for nothing. Past repeat performers include Joe Baker Band, Rod's Collision, Light Brown Jimmy, Tim Greene, Tony Duda, and EXIT 179. Others from the area have played with the hope that perhaps their music might draw even more attention to a problem that each of us most likely will be exposed to during our lives.
This year we have a host of bands new to our stage who have come together for a day of 'celebration of life'. Whether you like country, classic rock, indie, folk, blues, or a lady who channels Patsy Cline there is something there for you. We sincerely hope that all of the past musicians, friends of Alicia's Voice, and everyone who likes music will bring their chairs to Needle Hall on June 16 from noon to 9 p.m. to enjoy a wide variety of good music in our 4th Annual Community Concert. There will be food available from the BG Eagles with all of the proceeds going back to Alicia's Voice.
Sitting in a grove of oak trees listening to free music while extending awareness to such a great cause gets no better than this ... we hope to see you there!
