Beloved Family Center supporter and accomplished performer Lindsey Wilson, who has previously performed at our Three of Hearts fundraiser concert, brought her new Human Heart Tour to our Brooklyn office this past Friday, June 27th. Our clients and staff enjoyed rocking out to her guitar-playing and melodious vocals, juxtaposed and complimented by the fabulous beats of drummer Reggie Sylvester. The intimate concert not only entertained, but also educated clients, who had questions about Lindsey’s style, which she describes as “expansive.”
While everyone at The Family Center now agrees that “expansive” music is their favorite genre, no one could agree on their favorite song of Lindsey’s -there were just too many musical gems to count! Many thanks to Lindsey and Reggie for sharing their impressive talents with The Family Center! We will always consider you two part of the family!
Lindsey’s next performance Lindsey Wilson & The Big Guns is on Thursday, July 24, at ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn, NY at 7PM. Tickets are $10 / $8 Seniors
Human Heart Tour: Its Purpose in Lindsey’s Words
It takes many human hearts to build a village, just as it takes a village to raise a child. Through song and goodwill, The Lindsey Wilson’s Human Hearts Tour uplifts and supports community based organizations that support and provide for others within the community.
Very often those behind the scenes of the non-profit organizations are so tirelessly dedicated to their mission to serve that they can’t afford to stop and take their well-deserved bow for the contributions or tremendous impact they’ve made on the very community that they serve.
For that reason, the Human Heart Tour is my way of saying “thank you” for making a difference in so many ways for so many lives. During the tour, I will perform my original songs for staff and their clients with the hopes of encouraging and showing appreciation for those whose contribution continues to make a difference!
