Event

United Way of Blount County Music Fest 2019
In 2016, Chris Blue found himself at a crossroads.

The youngest of seven children born among very humble beginnings in Polk County, Florida, he devoted his entire life to music. He went from the Blue Family at three-years-old to the Blue Brothers and to a burgeoning solo career by the age of twenty, sharing the stage with everyone from Kirk Franklin and Hezekiah Walker to Fred Hammond and Mary Mary as well as performing across the U.S., Virgin Islands, Jamaica, and the UK.

In the midst of a promising solo career, the love of his life received a bone marrow cancer diagnosis, flatlined, and Chris made an unbreakable promise. "When she flatlined, I cried and prayed for God to bring her back. When he did, I promised I would not only marry her, but that I would try out for The Voice. I remember watching Season 8 thinking there's no way I could ever be on the show. Fear crept into my  mind. Finally, I was like, Ready or not, here I come."

As the story goes, Chris not only tried out, but he triumphantly emerged as the Season 12 victor on Team Alicia Keys. Show after show, he captured the hearts of millions with his combination of raw vocal talent, heartfelt honesty, and brave vulnerability. His rendition of Bruno Mars 24K Magic and Take Me To The King proved show-stopping, while a duet with Keys on Diamonds and Pearls brought the house down.

Following his victory, Chris inked a deal with Republic Records and immediately entered the studio to commence work on what would become his forthcoming full-length debut for the label.  He artfully unites Motown, pop, and soul into a sound of his own.

Within that collage of styles, his beliefs remain central.

"My faith is not important; it's essential," he goes on. "It's who I am. It's the foundation of where I come from. The energy you feel, the message you hear, and the light you see comes from my faith regardless of the genre."

That honesty builds a lasting connection for Chris Blue. "I'm in the hope dealing business. I want to give the world hope. I want people to walk away with hope in their relationships, their loved ones, and themselves. I want them to be inspired."

Aaron Tracy is an All-American East Tennessean living his life behind a beat up six-string and a classic stage microphone. If it's "loud and proud," wholesome country music, then it's got Aaron's name written all over it.

Join us for an inspiring night of music, community and help us fight the good fight. Your ticket purchase will benefit over 55,000 of the most vulnerable in Blount County in the areas of health, education and self-sufficiency. With your help, we're more than fundraisers.
