JUST ANNOUNCED: Metro Detroit Native, Kylee Phillips will be opening for Vanessa Williams at Goodwill’s Harmonies & Hope Concert

Kylee Phillips is a pop/folk singer, pianist and songwriter from Plymouth, Michigan. Since beginning her “professional” music career at the young age of 14, Kylee has built a loyal local following with her personal lyrics and intimate performance style, garnering comparisons to the likes of Sara Bareilles and Brandi Carlile. During her years at Wayne State University in Detroit she was afforded many unique performance opportunities, including several choral performances with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and appearing as a soloist in the premier of Russ Miller’s jazz composition Suite Justice. She has also had the honor of performing as a soloist with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, the Michigan Philharmonic and many other choral, orchestral and musical theater groups. All of these experiences have certainly shaped Kylee as a performer, but it is as a singer-songwriter that she truly shines.

We are excited to announce that Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit, in partnership with MotorCity Casino Hotel, will be bringing Vanessa Williams to Detroit for this year’s annual Harmonies & Hope Concert.

“Harmonies & Hope” is a celebration of Detroit’s musical past and present, and an opportunity to raise funds in support of its bright economic future. This event brings together members of the Detroit community, and beyond, for a night of “good-will” and great music. Most importantly, this event helps put the people of Metro Detroit back to work.

Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit has, for over 95 years, been considered the leading non-profit innovator of social enterprise throughout Southeast Michigan. Since our inception in 1921, our mission statement has been unwavering: We put people with employment challenges to work.

We believe that through job creation, our local economy can be improved for the long run. This simple fund-raising event will help this initiative.

All ticket sales and sponsorship of this event support Goodwill’s local employment training, education, placement and job creation programs that enable local people to overcome challenges and earn jobs. These programs help the region’s unemployed become “Trained, Trusted and Ready to Work.” Goodwill is the among the few organizations solely dedicated to fighting the battle against Metro Detroit unemployment, and we believe that job creation, training and placement assistance services can truly be the key to breaking down these barriers to a brighter future.
