HVAF veterans perform at Bethel United Methodist Church
Eight veterans and three staff members atook to the stage as part in a musical performance for the Bethel United Methodist Church on Sunday, May 17. The annual program dedicated to veterans was introduced by HVAF Founding Board Member Louise Loyd.
AJ who performed as vocalist and on the keyboard says the past 12 months have blurred together. He has gone from living in a homeless shelter to receiving housing through HVAF to once again booking jobs to play at clubs. He mostly enjoys performing at churches and says his performance was meaningful because he felt appreciated by church members.
“It was a great, yet humbling experience to be able to present and share a special day with people who support and encourage our success as recovering veterans, said AJ. “It was an honor to be able to give back in a small, but significant way to wonderful people.”
