AU Students United for Haiti, a group of several campus clubs united to support a single cause, raised a little over $2,000 at the Benefit Concert for Haiti held Sunday, March 7, in the Howard Performing Arts Center.

“Nearly 400 people attended and it was a nice mix of students, staff, faculty and community members,” said Louise Albert, a lead organizer of the event. “It was plain to see everyone there truly cared about those affected by the earthquake in Haiti.”

A number of campus talents including Alison Brooks and Justin Davis, along with Living Springs Fellowship Choir from Berrien Springs and Heavenly Harmony from Alabama, joined together for this diverse musical concert. The Deliverance Mass Choir (pictured) along with special guest artists performed Are You Listening: A Love Song for Haiti by singer/songwriter Kirk Franklin.

To date, AU Students United for Haiti has raised more than $10,000, which will be divided between their $10,000 fundraising goal for ADRA for Haiti and the fund to benefit the families of Haitian students at Andrews University who lost family members and/or property in the Haiti earthquake.

AU Students United for Haiti is a joint initiative of the Hispanic Association of the Seminary, Bringing Youth to Christ, Graduate Student Association, New Life Fellowship, Parlé Club, Black Student Association of the Seminary, Caribbean Club and Seminary Student Forum.
