A few familiar faces will be joining show host Amy Grant at this year’s Lighting of the Green.
The tenth annual show will feature American Idol finalist and Christian artist Danny Gokey, Dove-winning gospel singer and actress Tamela Mann, singer/songwriter Jon Guerra, multi-talented family The Willis Clan, Brother Parker, Lipscomb student choruses and others.
Walt Leaver, vice president for university relations, spoke to the impact Grant has had on the show.
“Lighting of the Green has become a beloved tradition in Nashville, and we couldn’t have made that happen without the support and generosity of Amy Grant, who gives of her time and talent to perform and to schedule an exciting slate of artists each year,” Leaver said.
The free. rain-or-shine concert starts at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 2, on the Allen Arena Mall. Festivities will begin at 4, including the Merry Marketplace at the arena. Free photos with Santa Claus are also available.
Food or cash donations will be accepted for the Second Harvest Food Bank at the event.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blanket or lawn chair.
