A Riveting Performance

 

Last Sunday afternoon, Alexa Lee, a Radnor high school student, used her God-given musical gift by performing Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Mendelssohn. When I asked Alexa why she wanted to do it, she told me she was alarmed by the statistics in the Philadelphia school district just a few miles away from her excellent public school in Radnor.

I was moved by the performance. Feel free to click here to hear it.

About 130 people joined us, and it is our privilege to report that 20 new student sponsors are now sharing in Jubilee’s mission to open the door to Christian schooling for low-income youth in Philadelphia, Norristown, Chester, and Camden.

At Jubilee we are thankful to Dr. David and Mrs. Tessi Lee for joining their daughter Alexa to host this event. They worked tirelessly behind the scenes making sure the afternoon was a success! We thank God for new sponsorships. We also thank Wendell Holmes and the Philadelphia Mennonite High School choir as they closed out the afternoon with soulful singing. Philadelphia Mennonite High School is one of our 24 Jubilee member schools.

In Center City Philadelphia at 17th and Sansom Streets, opportunity was created for some youth who live in the city’s neediest neighborhoods. Thank God for the opportunity!
