WAY OF LOVE

with Abby K. Davis & The Gathering Band

Sun., Jan. 27, 3pm, Sanctuary

All are invited to experience this remarkable concert featuring original contemporary Christian music by Abby K. Davis and more! Free Admission. Open to All!  A love offering, after expenses, will be donated to Ronald McDonald House.

About Abby K. Davis: “I am Abby K Davis. I realize that through all forms of music there is an emotional aspect that draws a listener in and changes their perspective in some way. I strive to do the same thing with my own music and also in my work. I sing, play the piano, the saxophone, and the guitar. My preferred genres to listen to are rock, EDM, singer-songwriter and alternative.
     As of now, I am a student at Groove U in Columbus, Ohio studying audio and video production as well as live sound. My goal is to change lives through music, through collaboration on sets, and through simple conversations.”
