The public is invited to a free fundraiser concert featuring popular contemporary Christian rock band, MercyHeart, on Saturday, February 27, 2016.
Freewill donations will be accepted at the door with all proceeds to support educational programs in conjunction with the arts for Alexander County Schools.
Driven by the passion to bring the Gospel of Christ to all people, MercyHeart strives to reach out and fellowship with folks that would not normally consider attending a traditional church setting while growing relationships within the traditional worship community. Their original writing reflects this same character by blending songs with tonal qualities reminiscent of today’s mainstream contemporary Christian rock with elements that are unique to the genre which includes powerful testimony to the group’s walk with Christ and the positive effect God has had on their lives.
MercyHeart has had the opportunity to perform at many large Christian concerts & festivals including Awakening Music festival with Jeremy Camp & Mercy Me, and The Time of My Life Tour with The Afters, Chris August & Unspoken. They have also opened concerts for many other national groups including Kutless & Citizen Way to name a few.
MercyHeart is based out of Granite Falls, NC. Members include: Zach East – drums, Cheryl Eldridge – vocals and keys, Travis Sprouse – bass guitar, Chad Ritchie (of Alexander County) – guitar, and Mike Waksmunski – vocals and guitar.
