Day 8 in Statesville World Record Concert

Day 8 has been an enjoyable day at the 10-Day Music Marathon!  I want to publicly thank one of our music marathon committee members and concert performer…Mac Funderburk…Mac was the Executive Director of our Counseling Center of Iredell for many years so the lives of hundreds of our citizens have benefitted by Mac’s caring nature and counseling skills.  Mac and his wife Evelyn aka “Scoop” joined our marathon committee and became financial sponsors and their giving doesn’t stop there.  Today during the wee hours from 5:00 a.m. until 8:00 a.m., Mac performed singing his heart out for our event!  Y’all 3 hours is a long time!  He did it the night before as well.

Last night we enjoyed the beautiful music by Broad Street United Methodist Church Choir, First Baptist Church Choir and Five ’til Five Brass Quintet.  Statesville’s own Karla Causey was outstanding and Neil Furr entertained us with some of his original folk music.  Neil is the Executive  Director of our Yokefellow Ministries. 

My message to our readers today is this…Statesville & Iredell County, we have 3 days left of this fantastic event.  Come out to Signal Hill Mall and enjoy the music, applaud the musicians donating their time and talent and drop a little in our donation box to be shared with the local 23 UW agencies.  Our community has lots of suffering families, so as we know…

    It’s been amazing how this whole event has come together. United Way staff has been marvelous. Not only are they working at the event but they’re still doing their regular day jobs to find money for the 23 agencies. Volunteers have been very giving and excited about the event as have our musicians. Statesville may be small in size but we’re mighty in spirit!
