National Recording Artist to visit Madison
Boys & Girls Club alumni Damien Horne believes in the power of storytelling and he’s spent his career writing those stories in song. On September 19 he’ll bring those stories to life in his one-man show full of music, storytelling, laughter and ultimately a message of purpose.
He’ll play at the James Madison Conference Center at 11:30 AM for a fundraiser benefiting the Madison-Morgan County Boys & Girls Club.
"We are all designed uniquely different. And if we tap into who we are, we shine,” Horne shares in his Rise and Shine performance. “The great thing about shining is when you do that you liberate other people to do the same thing."
Horne is an award-winning national recording artist, who has touched the lives of thousands with his heartfelt personal journey. Horne has showcased his act “Rise and Shine” multiple times across Ted Talk stages across the country.
But his life didn’t always feature music making and meaning making through spoken word. Horne spent a period of his life homeless on the streets busking for income. He was determined to become something through his craft.
Horne happened to be playing when John Rich of Big & Rich passed by and asked him to come to his house for a round of musicians. From there, Horne was signed to MuzikMafia receiving a publishing deal.
Damien has played and recorded with countless acts, such as John Legend, Big & Rich, Lady Antebellum and more.
On September 19 Damien will bring his popular show to Madison to inspire and help those in attendance unlock their difference maker for the good of the community.
