We grieve with those affected by the recent shootings here in Jacksonville, and our hearts and prayers are with them and our city. When Grammy Award winning artist Phil Driscoll heard about the shootings, he determined to make this concert a “Concert for Healing” to help bring healing to our city, still in shock due to the shootings.
Phil Driscoll, a former resident of Jacksonville, has deep roots in this city. In 1999, Vice President Al Gore asked Phil to write special music and perform at the internationally televised Concert for Columbine. Phil feels that with people so politically polarized, after an event like the horrific shooting at the Jacksonville Landing, music can bring people together in a way that nothing else can. He is a multiple Grammy and Dove award winning artist who has played before five U.S. Presidents and at numerous national events.
Please join us for this concert for healing. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to The Justice Coalition.
More about Phil… his name is synonymous with great music. His trumpet, voice, heart and soul have moved audiences around the world for more than 25 years. Phil has the unique ability to turn a twisted piece of brass, most just call a trumpet into a soaring instrument of beauty and heavenly praise. When you hear him sing or experience the effect of his compositions, there is no doubt that Phil Driscoll is a world-class, Spirit enabled, artist.
Beginning with his years playing alongside rock n’ roll legends Joe Cocker and Blood Sweat & Tears to his classical recordings with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Driscoll’s musicianship has always stood out. And though he has been awarded accolades from Grammys to the applause of presidents, Phil’s music has not only stood the test of time, its message has never changed.
Driscoll’s appeal is truly universal. An accomplished writer, Phil’s compositions have been heard all over the world- from Singapore to South Africa, Russia to Australia and from Latin America to Israel. The diversity of his sound is a journey in itself —jazz, blues, gospel, up-tempo pop and heartfelt ballads, he has astered them all. If music is a blessing poured out from Heaven, then somebody up there left the flood gates open, for Phil Driscoll has spent his life immersed in the divinely inspired waves of elody, harmony and rhythm.
For over twenty-five years, throughout America Phil’s music has trumpeted a single theme. Using his musical instruments and his extraordinary voice he has transcended language with an motionally powerful message that has shattered barriers between men and expanded their boundaries of faith in God. This has been the standard, the full-time pursuit of Phil Driscoll and Mighty Horn Ministries from the start.
Preaching from pulpits to performing on patriotic platforms, Phil Driscoll has inspired not only the people of this ‘one nation under God’, he has also, at their request, played before six of the American Presidents, from Carter to Obama. They all felt the need to call Phil into service. Crossing state lines and denominational boundaries, Driscoll travels up to 20 times each month in a tireless effort to stir up the spiritual conscience of America.
Through the horn of his trumpet Phil is awakening this nation’s houses of worship to their individual potential and collective responsibility to proclaim Christ. ...Every stop on his endless journey is a personal, individual, one-on-one invitation to experience the Presence of God. Phil believes that in following God’s call for him to create music means he no longer works to make a name for himself; but rather he works for the glory of the
One who has called us all.
Phil is equally brilliant in the biggest cathedrals to the smallest churches and too, in the tangible boundaries of America’s penitentiaries...When Driscoll takes his music behind the iron bars of a jail, he’s not there to simply perform a concert. He enters that dismal environment to rekindle hope. Today’s crowded prisons are over populated with loneliness. And music with a message has the power to change a man's heart from the inside.
When asked what inspired him to give his life to his music the way he does, with the God given dedication that he does, Phil simply thought about the memory of his uncle, Lee Kauffman and responded. . .
“The first time I heard him play was in a little church. I was just a boy, but the memory of that moment will never fade. I saw something in his eyes. I felt something inside of me. Every time he put the trumpet to his lips, he cried. His instrument was old and silver. He carried it in a black case. But when he picked it up, and he began to play songs like “The Old Rugged Cross,” tears would flow down his cheeks; his face would shine; and that trumpet seemed to come alive. I know that somehow, somehow, God used him to plant the seeds of love for that instrument in my heart. I never saw him frown. He always had a kind word, a gentle spirit, and a smile. He was so in love with Jesus that it rubbed off on everyone he touched. The world needs more men like him. Uncle Lee’s life was an example of God’s love. His works live on. And his life lives on through all those he touched, including me.”
Embracing the commandment to go into all the world with the Gospel, Phil’s Mighty Horn Ministry has extended its length and breadth with invitations from literally around the world... To date, Phil has taken the stage in over 50 nations, including Australia,
Singapore, South America, England, Germany, Israel, South Africa and many communities within the Former Soviet Union. While global audiences and languages change, the message in Driscoll’s music breaks every sound barrier to reach man’s inner soul. Phil wants, “his success not to be measured by hit records or by millions of sales, but by souls won.”
