Another wonderful Talent 4 the House!

A couple hundred Disciples gathered Thursday evening, Aril 7, at Woodmont’s Drowota Hall for this amazing night of music and fellowship in support of the Disciples Divinity House at Vanderbilt and its students, who are preparing for ministry at Vanderbilt Divinity School.

Gabe Dixon sang two new songs off his just-released CD, plus Disciples favorite, “All Will Be Well,” before leaving to go to a Tin Pan South Songwriter’s Night event at the Station Inn. Maura O’Connell next brought her strong voice and glorious Irish presence to the stage, including “The Blue Train” among her songs. 

The Disciples House Band, led by Evan Bunch, got the whole crowd singing “I’ll Fly Away.” The Live Auction was, as usual, a contest, with the “O What a Foretaste of Glory Divine Peanut Brittle” tying a record price, along with a custom handmade quilt and a Hatch Show Prints poster for the night, signed by all the performers. The Silent Auction was a success as well, with all items purchased.

Ben Saunders debuted a new video about the impact of the House, featuring alums Emily Nourse, Mike Lehman, and Bill and Kaki Frisckics-Warren.

Andrew Peterson followed intermission with his lovely, touching songs of faith and life, and as usual, Jonell Mosser closed out the night strong, finishing with a duet with Maura on “An Irish Blessing” which she had performed at Maura’s wedding.

You can see a video collage of the performers as well, here.

This was the 9th Talent 4 the House. Since 2008, Talent has raised well over $100,000 for the support for student preparing for ministry through the Disciples House at Vanderbilt.
