(Nashville, Tenn.) June 2, 2011- Award-winning singer/songwriter Brandon Heath, long an advocate of supporting communities in times of need, rallied friends and colleagues for his now-annual “Love Your Neighbor” benefit concert May 24 in Nashville, and raised more than $25,000 for families affected by the recent tornadoes in Alabama.

The concert, held at Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, featured Heath alongside acclaimed producer/songwriter Jason Ingram, vocalist Kari Jobe and Dove Award winning Chris August.

Along with the funds raised, Heath and company had one extra surprise for the Lee family from Birmingham, AL whose patriarch Jim was killed when the family home collapsed as he was trying to protect his family. Through the generosity of Sixsteps Records and the Steinway company, the piano played that night on stage was autographed by the artists and donated to the family, replacing one small piece of the family’s tradition as they continue to rebuild from this tragedy.

The “Love Your Neighbor” event was the latest in Heath’s busy spring supporting his most recent album project Leaving Eden (1/18), and kicked off a busy summer season of festival appearances. This fall, Britt Nicole joins Heath as the Leaving Eden Tour impacts nearly 40 cities around the country. A final list of venues, tour sponsors and strategic partnerships associated with the Leaving Eden Tour will be announced in coming weeks.

About Brandon Heath:
Since the 2006 debut of Don’t Get Comfortable, Christian music’s beloved and twice honored GMA Male Vocalist of the Year (2009 and 2010), Brandon Heath, has won an Emmy Award, been nominated for two GRAMMYs, an American Music Award and has garnered multiple GMA Dove Awards and songwriting honors. His award winning songs paired with Heath’s signature vocals reflect the Nashville native’s soaring radio career that includes four No. 1 hits: “I’m Not Who I Was,” “Wait and See,” the 2009 GMA Dove Award winning Song of the Year, “Give Me Your Eyes,” and the eight-week chart topper, “Your Love.”

Heath first began writing at age 13 and credits his hometown’s legendary hotspot for songwriters, the Bluebird Café, as the place he first experienced music that moved him. Heath’s artistry and ability to connect with audiences have compelled countless media outlets across the nation to platform his story and music. Coverage includes Billboard magazine, “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric,” Relevant magazine and a 2011 feature by the Wall Street Journal.

Other key spotlights include Heath’s “Give Me Your Eyes” (What If We 8/19/2008) which was selected for The Discovery Channel’s “On The Case With Paula Zahn,” as well as a feature by the Sunday edition of The New York Times as a GRAMMY-nominated newcomer “that shouldn't be allowed to slip through the cracks.”

Heath’s third album, Leaving Eden (1/18/2011) debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Sales chart and is supported by non-stop direct-support and headlining tours. The hit maker’s new single “The Light In Me” released to radio on 4/29 and set in motion momentum driving his 40-city “Leaving Eden Fall Tour,” with special guest, Britt Nicole.
