A VERY MERRY SOULFUL CHRISTMAS will be a beautiful and soulful musical journey of Christmas songs performed by some of the Bay Area’s finest world class artists. This year’s show will feature Linda Tillery, Tony Lindsay, Tommy Castro, Jamie Davis, Nate’ The Soul Sanger and Terrie Odabi.

Last year’s show took place at the beautiful Plymouth Church of Jazz and Justice in Oakland, CA., in front of a sold-out audience of approx. 350 people.
Ticket sales covered all production costs and the remaining money was donated to the ministry at Plymouth Church which is dedicated to feeding the homeless in their community.

Because of Covid19, this year’s show will be streamed from the beautiful stage at the historic Club Fox in Redwood City, CA.,
via their newly installed high-def audio/visual system.
We have everything in place to provide our audience with a high quality musical experience.

Here is how you can help bring this year’s FREE production to life...
We need donations from our big beautiful music loving community!
It’s as simple as that.
The proceeds raised will be used to cover production costs which will include...

• Paying musicians (house band and headliners)
• Paying for the venue  (2 days of recording and the cost of the technicians and         engineers)
• Festive Holiday Staging

ALL REMAINING MONEY WILL GO TOWARDS CHARITY... benefiting the wonderful Ministry at Plymouth Church of Jazz and Justice.  The Ministry partners with Hoover Elementary School in West Oakland to provide some much needed services to the children at Hoover. Each year, the ministry donates backpacks, warm winter coats, and other gifts and supplies to the students. The ministry provides services that include reading tutors and classroom volunteers.
They look forward to performing these services in person once again when schools are able to resume on-site instruction.
Finally, they have helped establish a Community Garden which provides fresh fruits and vegetables to a community where many families struggle to meet their children’s nutritional needs.

I hope to raise the proceeds needed to guarantee the production of this year’s show by December 8th, 2020.
And on behalf of the Ministry of the Plymouth Church of Jazz and Justice...I thank you all in advance for your help in making this wonderful production happen.

Please share this GoFundMe with your friends on social media, and blessings to all who give and blessings to those who are unable to give.

Individuals or businesses that contribute $500 or more, will be listed as a sponsor’ of the show during the streaming.
Please contact Terrie Odabi for more information.
