Sara Evans Headlines George Michael Tribute To Benefit Unlikely Heroes

Sara Evans is bringing some “Faith” to Nashville Tuesday night (May 2) when she headlines a tribute concert for the legendary pop singer, George Michael at City Winery.

George, who passed away in December 2016, was a 80’s & 90’s pop star who began his career in the popular group Wham!, before moving onto a solo career with hits like “Faith” “Father Figure” and “Freedom ’90.” He passed away due to heart related issues in December 2016 at the age of 53.

The event, hosted by Savannah Chrisley, from USA Network’s hit series Chrisley Knows Best, is being dubbed Nights of Freedom and will benefit Unlikely Heroes, an organization which works to rescue, restore and rehabilitate child victims out of slavery.

Songwriter Shane Stevens, organized the event as a tribute to George Michael and his elementary school teacher, who while hearing George’s song on he radio, told Shane, who was being bullied as a child, that he was amazing and he was going to be just like George Michael one day. Shane credits George as an inspiration to him.

The concert will feature musical performances from Sara Evans, Cassadee Pope, Desmond Child, songwriter Shane Stevens, country trio Post Monroe and America’s Got Talent, Season 11 alum singer/songwriter Brian Justin Crum.
