Songs from the Heart: An Evening of Art and Music is a joint project between Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Gilda’s Club Nashville. Proceeds from this event benefit the Caring Hearts Fund, which supports cancer patients at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center who are experiencing difficulty paying their rent/mortgage, utilities or other obligations of daily living while in treatment. Song lyrics written by cancer survivors, their families and medical professionals about their cancer experience will be put to music and will be performed by professional songwriters Jan and Chris Harris and Jim Weber. This event will also feature a silent auction that includes various forms of art by artists from across the state of Tennessee whose lives have been touched by cancer.
“Great songs happen when songwriters seek to find the courage to be vulnerable in exposing their deepest feelings on the page. Such fragile and important ideas need to be nurtured in a safe environment in order to come to fruition,” says Tricia Walker. That very thing has taken place in the workshop, and continues to be a great experience between the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and Gilda’s Club Nashville.
