DETROIT — On Sept. 13, Martha Munizzi, a Grammy and Soul Train award nominee and Dove and Stellar award winner, will perform to benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center.
The concert will take place 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13 at the Grace Christian Church in Sterling Heights (33801 Van Dyke Ave.) Tickets are available for $20 at www.itickets.com, and at The Salvation Army ARC’s headquarters in Detroit at 1627 W. Fort St. from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The ARC Singers will perform to open for Martha Munizzi.
In the last decade, acclaimed music minister Martha Munizzi has risen to the upper reaches of the Christian and gospel music spheres, becoming an in-demand worship leader, songwriter and speaker across the United States and beyond.
“We are honored to have Martha Munizzi, an exceptionally talented gospel musician, travel to Detroit for the benefit of our mission,” Merle Miller said, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “Whether you’re a Christian music fan or not, Munizzi’s performance will be an evening of inspiration and a spiritual celebration. We encourage and welcome metro Detroiters to attend the concert.”
Proceeds from the concert will support The Salvation Army ARC’s adult rehabilitation programs, and benefit the ARC’s goals of installing a children’s playscape at the women’s Romulus facility, as well as adding additional life enhancing programs for the women’s rehabilitation program.
The concert is part of The Salvation Army ARC’s annual Harvest of Blessings, which is a celebration of the men and women who successfully completed the ARC’s adult rehabilitation program.
Completely self-funded, The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center draws its entire operating budget from the nonprofit’s 34 metro Detroit Salvation Army thrift stores and this fundraiser.
In 2012, the ARC provided 488,231 meals, 100,381 nights lodging, 253,354 counseling sessions, 159,894 worship/Christian education sessions, and 211 program completions that equal 37,980 days of sobriety.
The ARC maintains two facilities in metro Detroit, including a Detroit facility serving 300 men and a Romulus facility housing 80 women. These men and women struggle with substance abuse, and the ARC helps them set their lives on track and re-enter society as functional and productive citizens.
