NASHVILLE, TN (October 1, 2014) – Music Health Alliance announces “An Evening with Emily West” at the Franklin Theater on November 8, 2014 at 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:00pm. This is her first live performance since stealing the hearts of America on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Emily is coming home to heal the music through this one-night only performance benefiting Music Health Alliance.
“I am so thrilled to be coming home to support an organization that helps so many of my own friends within the music community,” says Emily West.
Singer-songwriter Emily West moved to Nashville at age 18 and had some success as a country music artist. But a few months ago, she wanted a clean slate, so she sold her car, packed her bags for New York City and never looked back. Emily’s dream is to have a one-woman show that tells stories through her songs. Her music inspirations include Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Rufus Wainwright and Antony and the Johnsons. Most recently, Emily was first runner-up on America’s Got Talent showcasing some of the songs she will perform at The Franklin Theatre.
“Emily’s story is our story,” says Tatum Hauck Allsep, Founder/Executive Director for MHA. “We are honored for her to join our mission to heal the music.”
Music Health Alliance has secured over $4.2 million dollars in life-changing healthcare resources to heal the music in the last two years.
