Dove Award Winning Ellie Holcomb On Stage in Birmingham
Get ready for a great night of beautiful music and inspiration at Iron City Birmingham on Thursday August 24. “Hymns of Hope” features an evening with Dove Award winning singer-song writer Ellie Holcomb and benefits Shelby County’s Prodigal Pottery, a ministry of King’s Home. Prodigal Pottery’s mission is “to provide a safe and therapeutic work environment for women in need that develops healthy professional skills, interpersonal relationships and spiritual depth.” The ministry provides women fleeing homelessness and domestic abuse with meaningful employment, while equipping them with entrepreneurial skills needed to succeed.
The title song of Ellie Holcomb’s latest project, Red Sea Road, has been a sweet gift of hope to the women of Prodigal Pottery, and you can hear Holcomb sing this powerful tune and many others live August 24. The single “Find You Here” is particularly personal. It’s a song about the profound peace Holcomb and her family experienced in the wake of a cancer diagnosis for her dad, music producer Brown Bannister. “It didn’t make any sense to have peace with so many questions and unknowns on the horizon, but we really did experience God drawing near to our broken hearts in a palpable and beautiful way,” she explains, adding, “The song is a celebration of the faithfulness of God, and how He shows up in the most unlikely, most broken places.” Red Sea Road is a record full of songs that capture how Holcomb has seen God show up in the middle of a painful and heavy season in her life and those around her.
The Nashville native began her musical career touring the country with husband Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors. After 8 years, and the birth of their daughter, Emmylou, Ellie opted to step out of the role of heavy touring. From that space came her debut solo album, As Sure As The Sun, which charted at No. 1 on the iTunes Christian chart and helped deem Holcomb the “Best New Artist” at the 2014 Dove Awards. Enjoy Holcomb performing live while you help women in our community rebuild their lives. Learn more and purchase tickets at www.prodigalpottery.com. †
