Songs for the Community
On October 26 at 5 p.m., The Columbus Foundation premiered Songs for the Community, a series of weekly performances to help boost the spirit of Columbus, spread joy, and inspire others in a time of unprecedented uncertainty. Recorded at the Foundation and released every Monday and Thursday at 5 p.m. on Facebook and YouTube through November 25, each video features a local artist or group in an energetic and personal performance.
The series kicked off with the Bobby Floyd Trio in an interpretation of Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free.”

On Monday, November 9 at 5 p.m., Jim Maneri performs a comedic version of “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” by Eric Idle.
A full time working professional musician for decades, Jim has played thousands of concerts and gigs in almost every big city in North and South America. Mr. Maneri graduated from The Ohio State University on a full scholarship majoring in classical music composition, and also brought his energy and enthusiasm for music as a public school teacher.
The Columbus Foundation hopes these community songs add love and happiness to your day and that you feel uplifted through the Spirit of Columbus.
Songs for the Community was produced by and recorded at The Columbus Foundation. Recorded, mixed, & mastered by Jon Fintel at Relay Recording (http://relayrecording.com/) and videography by Charles Hairston & Jason Wood for Faseis (http://faseis.com/).
