BIRMINGHAM – Southern rock folk artist Michelle Malone will perform at Moonlight on the Mountain (585 Shades Crest Road) on Sunday, Oct. 14. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the Children’s Hospital Intervention and Preventions Services (CHIPS) Center at Children’s of Alabama.

Atlanta-native Malone will entertain guests at this intimate venue with a combination of folk, rock, blues and Americana. Malone has won numerous Creative Loafing and Atlanta Magazine Awards including Album of the Year, Best Female Vocalist and Best Acoustic Guitarist.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The show begins at 7 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring their own chairs and beverages for a low-key evening of listening for a good cause.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. To reserve a seat, visit http://www.moonlightonthemtn.com.

Moonlight on the Mountain was designed and built to be a warm, comfortable listening venue, presenting a variety of original acoustic performers in an informal concert format. Inspired by the appeal of house concerts and “unplugged” shows favored by musicians and small audiences nationwide, The Moonlight showcases singers, songwriters and instrumentalists in a mini-theater environment— cozy, upclose and smoke-free.

CHIPS Center is a place where child abuse victims can come for help and healing. The CHIPS staff is a team of specially trained clinical counselors, doctors, social workers, and nurses who work with law enforcement, the Department of Human Resources (DHR), and child advocacy center (CAC) representatives to provide the best possible care for children and families traumatized by physical and/or sexual abuse.

Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children since 1911, offering inpatient and outpatient services throughout central Alabama. Last year, families made more than 634,000 outpatient and nearly 14,000 inpatient visits to Children’s from every county in Alabama and from 47 other states. With more than 2 million square feet, Children’s is the third largest pediatric medical facility in the U.S. and has been ranked among the top children’s hospital programs in the country for the past three years by US News & World Report.
