Dr. Bill Cummings will perform original arrangements in concert on Friday, November 11 at 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Charlotte in Sowing Seeds of Blessings for Brookstone Schools’ Benefit Concert, at a non-profit school for under-resourced youth in Charlotte.
Dr. Cummings has traveled across the United States, Caribbean and throughout Europe performing his own written music. He’s entertained audiences of tens of thousands, including a performance at The Vatican before The Pope. But what truly inspires music extraordinaire Dr. Bill Cummings after decades of renowned success and accomplishment? He responded: “Seeing inner-city youth thriving in a premier academic environment with the hope and vision of growing into the future leaders of our country.”
For one night only, Dr. Bill Cummings, lyricist, composer and entertainer, takes the stage Sowing Seeds of Blessings at a Benefit Concert for Brookstone Schools, Charlotte’s only non-profit school providing first-class, Judeo-Christian education for under-resourced children. Dr. Cummings will perform original arrangements and favorites from the Motown-era, as well as music written specifically for Brookstone Schools.
“The first time I heard the voices of Brookstone children singing my heart was deeply touched,” said Bill Cummings. “I’m honored to share my gift of music to ‘Sow Seeds of Blessings’ for the students at Brookstone Schools so they would be the children with a voice to sing, live and one day start “Sowing Seeds of Blessings” for more children to come to Brookstone Schools.”
Dr. Cummings and wife Rosetta were introduced to Brookstone Schools in early 2016 and immediately felt a connection to the school’s mission of equipping low-income youth with the tools needed to position students for leadership and success in the future.
“The first time I walked through the hallways of Brookstone, I could see evidence of life-transformations taking place at that school,” said Cummings. “There are students of every color, ethnicity, and background learning together in unity. There are premier teachers investing into youth and laying a foundation of moral and academic excellence. These children are thriving in a safe and healthy environment and taking advantage of opportunities to create a future for themselves that they otherwise would not have, and they know that education is their ticket to become anything they dream of being!”
