Raleigh First Church of the Nazarene, located at 1329 Hwy 70 W, Garner, will fill with music Jan. 20. The church will host a must-see concert in support of World Vision.
Christian musical group Downhere will be wowing audiences that night. The group, which has been performing together for 10 years, plays rock and pop music with smooth driving melodies and beautiful arrangements. The group has been nominated for and won several Christian music awards. The group has hits that include “Here I am,” Let me Rediscover you,” “Rest,” “Better Way” and “My Last Amen.”
During the concert this Friday, Downhere will be singing their popular songs and some of their older songs as well.
However, they will not be the only group entertaining the audience that night. Local band Singlestreet will kick off the night and Sean Kilpatrick will help sing a song he wrote as the opening song.

“This will be a great show, I have seen them four times, and they are awesome in concert,” John Willingham, an event organizer said. “I have been around music my whole life and these guys are professional and talented singers and musicians; they interact with the crowd, tell background of songs, talk about their faith in God and love for Jesus.”
Willingham encourages people to come out and participate in this event.
“Come out and support great and talented young men who have dedicated themselves to the work of Jesus Christ and His mission through music and song, with all that is wrong in the world today and with all the filthy lyric music that is out, they are a breath of fresh air, and you will very much enjoy this concert!”
