A group of musicians is leading a new caroling event along Music Row on Friday, Dec. 11 that will benefit the homeless of Nashville.

The Nashville Musicians Association, AFM Local 257 together with the United States Association of Gospel Entertainers and Musicians (USAGEM) and the Music City Christian Fellowship (MCCF) are organizing the inaugural ‘Caroling on the Row – A March for the Homeless.’

The event is held during the national Project Homeless Connect week and all funds raised will be given to The Key Alliance to benefit Nashville’s homeless population. The organizers are calling on people to join in and sing along as the carolers are marching up and down Music Row from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m that day.

‘Caroling On The Row’ will have a sign up booth at Project Homeless Connect Nashville (see related story) on Dec. 9 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Municipal Auditorium for participants and volunteers to sign up.

Businesses can contact Dave Pomeroy (dave@afm257.org) or Daniel Johnson (brownbox@bellsouth.net) if they would like for the caroling party to stop at their offices.

The Key Alliance, an initiative of the Metropolitan Homelessness Commission, brings together nonprofit, faith-based, government, and for-profit organizations to create more low-income housing opportunities for the homeless.
