McKenzie’s Organize Concert with Erwin Family in Gratitude for Huntsville’s Support

HUNTSVILLE – Expressing deep appreciation to the Huntsville community, the McKenzie family, owners of McKenzie’s BBQ, are hosting a special concert featuring the Erwin Family on Sunday, February 18th. The event is a thank you from Kevin McKenzie and his family for the overwhelming support they received for Lisa McKenzie’s tumor surgery fundraising efforts.

The concert is scheduled at Cook Springs Baptist Church for 10:30 a.m., with a subsequent performance at First Baptist Church Huntsville at 6 p.m. Dinner will follow the evening concert at First Baptist Church Huntsville, all free of charge. Kevin McKenzie expressed his appreciation for the community’s support in an interview, highlighting how the timing of the event and the fundraiser for his wife Lisa felt divinely orchestrated. “It was just God’s timing,” McKenzie said. “We were just overwhelmed by how much the community has supported this.”

Kevin McKenzie’s desire to give back to the community stems from the generosity he experienced during the fundraising for Lisa’s medical expenses. “The only thing I know is cooking and feeding people. That’s how God has blessed us, and that’s been our ministry,” McKenzie shared, explaining his initial thought of feeding the church as a gesture of thanks. The opportunity to host the Erwin Family added an extra layer of gratitude to the event.

Kevin and Lisa McKenzie, owners of McKenzie’s BBQ in Huntsville, stand together. The Huntsville community recently rallied to support Lisa’s tumor surgery, showcasing the strong bonds of generosity and care within the area.

The relationship between the McKenzie family and the Erwin Family was forged within the southern gospel music community, illustrating the tight-knit ties characteristic of Huntsville and its neighboring regions. Their introduction to the Erwin Family came about through mutual connections in this musical sphere, highlighting the shared cultural and community values that brought them together.

Kevin McKenzie also emphasized the importance of focusing on the positive, especially in a world that often highlights the negative. “They [Huntsville community] supported our business in good times and bad times…it’s just been a loving community,” he said, expressing his deep appreciation for the support and love they’ve received over the years.

The Erwin Family, known for their impressive achievements including Dove Awards and Grammy nominations, promises to deliver a performance that not only entertains but uplifts the spirit of the community. The concert is open to the entire Huntsville community, symbolizing the unity and love that have been pivotal in supporting one of their own through challenging times.

As Huntsville comes together for this special event, the McKenzie family’s story serves as a powerful reminder of the impact of community support, kindness, and the healing power of music and fellowship.
