NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 6, 2013) - A rare line up of Christian music's most beloved performers, including Phil Keaggy, Petra, Michael Omartian, Rick Cua and others, were on hand recently to perform at "Sene-fit"--A Concert Of Love For The Seneffs at Belmont Church on Music Row.

The concert was held in memory of Joel Seneff, the 24-year-old son of veteran Christian music industry attorney Greg Seneff and his wife, Cheryl. Joel Seneff died July 23 in a tragic motorcycle accident. Proceeds from the benefit concert went toward expenses incurred following Joel's accident.

"Cheryl, Greg (Jr.) and I have been, and continue to be, overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, prayers and support we have received since the moment we heard that Joel had been in an accident," says Greg Seneff Sr. "When our dear friend, Brian Mason, told us about the idea of having the concert, I was speechless. I still am. Of course, the death of Joel has torn our hearts--and the hearts of everyone who knew him--in two. I am beginning to realize, however, how God uses tragedy and pain, friendship and love, to heal us. Our family is now much bigger--an extended family of those who loved Joel, and we cherish the times we get to love on them. To the men and woman who blessed us through the concert, those who worked behind the scenes, those who attended and donated online, we can only thank them from the deepest part of our hearts. There are no words adequate to really express our appreciation."

The full line-up for the concert included Phil Keaggy, Petra, Farrell & Farrell, Kenny Marks, Jim Cole, Rick Cua, Morgan Cryar, Michael Omartian, Gordon Kennedy and Rob Frazier.
