This free-with-donation show will go toward the rebuilding efforts of El Shaddai Christian Church, a small and growing Hispanic church in South Nashville devastated by the recent catastrophic flooding. On Sunday, May 2nd, six feet of water rushed inside El Shaddai, forcing Pastor German Castro to be rescued from the building by boat, as captured by WSMV FOX 17.

'There are so many ways that we can respond to this disaster, but my friends and I choose to react with hope. We encourage others to see this time of rebuilding as a great opportunity to care for others. Jason and I immediately connected with El Shaddai because we are called to action by God's Word when He says in Galations 6:10, "let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of faith."' -Brandon Heath

The 'Love Your Neighbor' benefit is an annual concert event created by Brandon Heath and Jason Ingram, in partnership with Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, TN. In 2008, the event raised $20,000 for Nashville area tornado victims. In 2009, the event slogan to 'Save David's Eyes' did just that, with donations covering the total cost of a critical eye surgery to prevent blindness of a local Centennial High School student, who had recently lost his father and health insurance coverage. Enough proceeds were collected to also create a standing fund for a future need within the student body. "
