Stars Go Dim to Perform at Southwestern College

Stars Go Dim, a Christian pop band from Nashville, will be featured performers at the Donna DeMint Memorial Cancer Benefit Concert Friday, June 1. The event will begin at 7 p.m. in the Richardson Performing Arts Center in Southwestern College’s Christy Administration Building.  Tickets are $15.

This concert is part of the Winfield Relay for Life event with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.

The band will also mentor youth attending Amp It Up! Worship Band Camp May 29 through June 2 at Southwestern College.  High school students at the camp will perform with other high school and college worship leaders.  

Since 2007 Stars Go Dim members have been determined to use their musical gifts for one purpose: letting people know about God's relentless love for them, group members say.

"We are all part of a love story,” says lead singer Chris Cleveland, “a story of God's love for his people and His love for each one of us.” 

Camp director Martin Rude is looking forward to having Stars Go Dim on campus. 

“We are so looking forward to the musical professionalism and the passionate message of the power of love that Chris and the band will bring to our Donna DeMint memorial fundraiser concert,” Rude says. “This year we are celebrating nominations from different community churches that we are calling ‘Champions of Perseverance.’ These are persons nominated by their local churches who have been through cancer treatments. Everyone who perseveres through the hard experiences of life is a champion. This is an effort to share some of their stories to increase knowledge about cancer and decrease some of the fear as we raise funds for the cure.” 

Rude adds that a video of some of their stories will be shown at the beginning of the concert and Stars Go dim will end their concert with a dedication of their last single “You are Loved.”
