BROOKLYN, NY, The First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn (First Unitarian) will host Songs for Solidarity, on Saturday night, April 27, 2019 at 7:00PM. 100% of the proceeds will support several asylum-seeking immigrant families who are currently living with members and friends of the congregation.

First Unitarian provided emergency housing in the church for that family and one other until a more long-term solution could be found. Funds from the concert will cover basic services such as food, medical needs, school supplies, and legal support. Kolot Chayeinu/Voices of Our Lives a progressive Jewish congregation in Park Slope, is a co-sponsor of the event.

CRYSTAL BOWERSOX - Madison Theatre at Molloy College
April 27, 2019 - Rockville Centre

Crystal Bowersox, a northwest Ohio native currently calling Nashville home, has built her life around music. For her, music was always the most effective form of catharsis, and she would play for anyone, anywhere. In her own words, "my guitar was an appendage. I couldn't live without it." Crystal moved to Chicago as a teenager, ultimately auditioning for the ninth season of American Idol. Crystal's time on the show proved to be well spent, as she immediately left the soundstage for the recording studio. Since her introduction to the world through television, Crystal has released two LPs, two EPs, and several singles. Additionally, she has used her talents to benefit several causes close to her heart and has become an advocate and inspiration for people living with Type 1 Diabetes. The accomplished singer-songwriter is set to release a new project – a live album, recorded at the Kitchen Sink Studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico, cleverly titled Alive. Not only is the title a play on words, representing the rawness of the tracks, but it pertains to the place where Crystal currently is in her life. That place is one of joy, fulfillment, and stability for Crystal and her eight-year-old son... (read more)
