Due to restrictions from COVID-19, the concert will be broadcast from Ventanas‘ outdoor rooftop patio overlooking downtown Atlanta’s Centennial Park District (CNN Center, Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, Georgia World Congress Center, etc.) but will not feature a physical audience. However, any person or organization will be allowed to crosspost the event. Proceeds from will go to feed children in Mongolia.
“My heart broke for the children of Mongolia that I was able to visit last year with Holt International,” says Weeks. “I knew I had to do something to help. It’s an incredible privilege to be able to speak on behalf of these amazing kids!”
”The Coronavirus is being felt around the world, particularly for children and most vulnerable families, now at even greater risk than before. Around the world our life saving programs that serve these children are threatened as the social and economic impact continues to grow," said Eric Mason, Chief Marketing and Development Officer at Holt International. "JJ's been to Mongolia with Holt and knows first-hand the struggles of kids in need, and the impact a small gift can make on the life of a child. We're blessed to be partnering with JJ on his ‘Night of Hope’ and know it's going to bless not just those who tune in for his music, but kids in Mongolia and around the world too."
Weeks is expected to perform music from his most recent EP The Sound Of Freedom which include hit songs like, "Choices" and "Days Like These."
“The first time I heard JJ Weeks riff that ol' sweet song ‘Georgia (On My Mind),’ I was hooked on his vocal authenticity,” says Nik Curtis Beal, Music Director, WJTL Lancaster, PA. “I saw him live, bought the tee-shirt and bought into his brand. Over the years, his songs from ‘Count Your Blessings’ to ‘Choices’ have risen up the WJTL charts. His latest high-spirited track, ‘The Sound of Freedom,’ is a top contender for any song on the charts right now and moves up again to No. 8 on the WJTL Top 40 this weekend.”
