Christian music legend Bryan Duncan will perform a benefit concert at 7:00 pm on Friday, December 6 at Venice Bible Church. The event will provide funds and publicity for Center of Hope and Pregnancy Solutions.

Duncan has released 14 solo albums, three with the NehoSoul Band and seven with the Sweet Comfort Band. He's had 16 No. 1 radio hits and sold in excess of 1.2 million records.

Duncan was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame along with Amy Grant and Al Green. His recordings have been celebrated with four Dove Awards and one Grammy Award.

People can hear Duncan's latest album, Conversations, and the stories behind the songs free at Duncan released an "unplugged" live performance video of his song I See You and is on a national I See You concert tour.

I See You is a grateful acknowledgement of God's presence and participation in our lives.

"My wife does this thing throughout the day," says Bryan Duncan. "She'll be working at something and out of the blue she'll just stop, point to the sky and say 'I see you!' I had to smile because it is such a great example of being in the moment with God. I don't see that kind of acknowledgement of God very often. It seemed like the perfect idea for a song.”

The I See You tour offers churches and charities the resources, volunteers and funding to reach new people and impact their communities. Even groups with limited experience organizing events can produce them effectively with support from Children In Need Inc, an non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of issues that impact children.

Producing a concert on the I See You Tour is easy, even for groups with limited experience. The tour provides training, advertising and marketing tools and social media support. Children In Need Inc. will even help host churches and charities finance their concerts through crowdfunding.

Crowdfunding is a convergence of technology, social media, fundraising and patronage that provides billions of dollars in backing to hundreds of thousands of projects. In addition to providing financial support, crowdfunding projects provide valuable information about public interests, facilitate deep relationships with backers and act as self-funded marketing campaigns for the events, services, products and campaigns they fund.

Duncan uses social media and crowdfunding to fuel a new business model that allows him to connect directly with his audience, bypassing traditional record labels. Duncan has the creative freedom of an independent artist but is still able to compete with the big record companies for radio airplay and media coverage.

Duncan recently announced a crowdfunding campaign to fund the release of two new albums. The campaign, which would produce a live album and a studio recording of new songs, runs through December 8, 2013.

The Center of Hope in Venice, FL provides social services including food, clothing, bus passes, computer use, counseling, Medicaid and food stamp assistance, housing and utility assistance, school supplies and a gift giveaway for needy and homeless children at Christmas.

Pregnancy Solutions offers a place of encouragement, support and empowerment to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and helps parents and their babies get a great start on life! They provide free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, adoption referrals and community resources to prospective parents.

Venice Bible Church is located at 2395 W. Shamrock Drive, Venice, FL and describes itself as "ordinary people worshiping our extraordinary God."
