Family Promise of Grant County is a nonprofit organization committed to helping homeless families achieve lasting independence in Southwest Wisconsin.
John has a big heart, and his heart is in the right place. Not only is he a wonderful musician, but he is an amazing storyteller. He sings the kind of songs about real people with real life issues. He seems to be the perfect person to help bring our message home, and support such a worthy event.
With his faded jeans, his twinkly blue eyes, and his infectious smile, John immediately connects with audiences. You get the sense of a man who loves his life, his family and friends, and who loves nothing more than sharing that love in song and stories all across this land.
John sings about pain, and loss, joy, tenderness, love, and most of all – the sacredness of life itself. How fitting for him to be sharing his music and his soul to help folks who just need to get a break in life.
Even if you have seen John before – make this event part of your May Day celebration. You won’t regret it. Living in the small town of Platteville, Wisconsin has taught me that we are all here to help each other out. We are all real, we all have our own struggles, but we don’t have to deal with these struggles alone.
So – come on out with your family to enjoy a meal of brats and hamburgers for a small donation, and bid on various auction items from our silent auction. And sit back and be ready to enjoy the soulful music of Johnsmith as he enlightens us to be kind to each other through his stories and songs.
John usually ends every concert with the song ”Safe Home” – which most of his audience helps him to sing – leaving you with a feeling of connection, love, and hope – that we are all in this world together. John words support the value of our organization and the right we all have to be having a safe home.
“Safe home, safe home, safe home will you go. May the light of the moon smile down on your road? Safe home, safe home, safe home, will you go. Until I next see you, safe home will you go.” Johnsmith “Safe Home” http://www.johnsmithmusic.com/index/
We promise you it will help make May Day a rewarding day for the families who will be touched by your support.
