(Savannah, GA)- Music with a greater purpose in Savannah. People all across the country are coming to the aid of Flint, Michigan. The city is hurting from a water crisis after high levels of lead was found in the water supply. Local musicians held a concert Monday, January 25, at Faith on the Move Ministries. Their goal is to raise money and awareness to provide more clean drinking water. Organizers say more than $1,000 was raised during the “One Love” Benefit concert. All of the proceeds will be used to buy bottled water for Flint.
