Songs Against Slavery Benefit Concert with Derek Webb to Fight Sex Trafficking
A benefit concert with Derek Webb and various artists called Tayonce. All of the artists will cover a Beyoncé or Taylor Swift song, a little bit of Lemonade, a little bit of 1989…Lemon89. All of the proceeds will go to End Slavery Tennessee.
Songs Against Slavery will be partnering with End Slavery Tennessee to host their 26th benefit concert featuring Noisetrade’s Co-Founder and President, Derek Webb. Derek Webb is a 20-year veteran of the music industry and has sold millions of albums as a founding member of Texas-based folk/rock band Caedmon’s Call.
Joining Webb on stage will be Neulore’s Adam Agin, Sinclair, J Human, Sawyer, Harper, Rebel Roads, Sharif Iman, Steel Union, The Horsettes, and more. All of the artists will cover a Beyoncé or Taylor Swift song, a little bit of Lemonade, a little bit of 1989…Lemon89. The night will also include an awareness portion to the public on what sex trafficking looks like in Nashville and how they can join the fight.
Songs Against Slavery recently made Nashville their home. With at least 100,000 children trafficked in the United States every year, they have committed to shedding light on this injustice taking place in our own backyard. Over 85 counties in Tennessee have reported at least one case of sex trafficking. The average age of entry is 13 years old.
A portion of the funds from the evening will benefit End Slavery Tennessee, a local nonprofit that promotes healing of human trafficking survivors and strategically confronts slavery in our state. End Slavery Tennessee offers training and education, aftercare, and seeks to prevent future cases. Their vision is to create a slave-free Tennessee.
