(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Jan. 20, 2010—Sparrow Records artist Robbie Seay Band has nominated fellow Houstonians, the “Beach Family,” for a complete home renovation, courtesy of the award-winning ABC reality program Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. The “Beach Family” was selected, and their episode taped last week. It will air in its entirety late March.

Larry and Melissa Beach lost their home in Kemah, TX, a suburb of Houston, to Hurricane Ike more than a year ago. The couple, who have thirteen children, nine adopted and many with special needs, have resided in FEMA trailers on their property since late 2008. Amidst such circumstances, the Beach’s, who have fostered more than 85 children in their home, have continued to offer a home to children in need. During the storm, Larry served as a line-man for the power company, leaving his flooded home to help restore power to the city while Melissa volunteered at the local food pantry.

Robbie Seay, co-founder of Ecclesia Church, comments, “Larry and Melissa proved that their love was stronger than anything a storm could bring their way. Living in FEMA trailers, they continued to reach out and love these kids, no matter the circumstances. My connection to this family is deep. They served as my youth group Sunday school teachers and now I mentor their older boys who are aspiring musicians. I am beyond thrilled that this is happening for them."

Early last week, Seay was present for the Beach’s surprise door knock and send-off to Orlando, Fla., while local volunteers and construction companies rallied their crews on-site for the renovation. He stayed at the build throughout the week, helping to make this the most amazing experience for the Beach family. "I always wondered if they really build these amazing homes in seven days,” Seay comments. “Well, they do! The ‘Beach House’ is the largest house ever built on the show, and it’s breathtaking. The one thing that really caught my eye was the kitchen table. There is seating for 18. This has been one of Melissa's dreams, to have all 15 (plus room for more) sharing a meal together at the same table. It's really an amazing piece of furniture that will be packed with kids for years to come." Seay also attended the final reveal on Thursday, Jan. 14. The “Beach Family” episode is scheduled to air late March. For more information and show times, visit http://abc.go.com/primetime/xtremehome/index?pn=index
