Life is Beautiful Quaran-Tunes Concert Coming One Week From Friday

With crowds for concerts still unable to gather en masse due to COVID-19, the third annual Life is Beautiful Concert fundraiser for NAMI is going into Quaran-tune. Organizer Joe Lee and local promoter John Taylor made the announcement on Monday that the fundraising concert would take place virtually on August 14th to the 16th at the Bishop Hill Creative Commons. The concert benefits NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and specifically, NAMI of the Greater Mississippi Valley.

“Now more than ever, suicide prevention and mental health supports are critical. More people may now be affected by anxiety or depression from the COVID experience,” says organizer Joe Lee. “Area visual and performing artists started this event in memory of a dear friend who struggled with depression. We thought NAMI’s grassroots approach to helping individuals and their families is very much needed in our community. I really appreciate the arts community working with NAMI to fight the stigma surrounding mental illness and encourage everyone to find help and hope.”
