Alan Pederson – Angels Across the U.S.A. Tour

Community Event, Special Event

Award-winning songwriter and speaker Alan Pedersen will perform at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 6 at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church in Bellingham. Open to everyone, the concert is sponsored by the Bellingham chapter of The Compassionate Friends, a support group for the parents, grandparents and siblings of child who have died. “The purpose of Alan’s concert is to inspire hope to bereaved families and individuals,” said Lynda Cheldelin Fell who coordinated Alan’s tour stop. “This concert is one of over 300 stops on Alan’s Angels Across the USA tour, and his first time performing north of Seattle. As a national expert on grief and healing, it’s exciting to have Alan bring his message of hope to our area.” Pedersen was an established Nashville songwriter when his daughter, Ashley, died in a car crash in 2001. Since her death, Pedersen has traveled around the country in a special van covered in butterfly decals bearing the names and hometowns of loved ones who have died. The decals will be available at the Bellingham concert. In 2013, Pedersen took four years off from touring to serve as executive director of The Compassionate Friends, the largest bereavement nonprofit in the world. He resumed his tour earlier this year. At the concert, he’ll speak to the community about finding hope. Admission is free. As Pedersen doesn’t charge a fee to perform, a love offering will be received to help offset his travel expenses. His CDs will be available for purchase at the event. The event is appropriate for all ages.
