RECAP

Covenant House Michigan (CHM) held its gala, A Night of Broadway Stars on May 10, 2018 at the Sound Board Theater in Detroit. It was an event filled with singing, dancing, and a range of emotions on stage and off. The true stars of the night were the youth of CHM and Covenant House Academy. They stole the show with their amazing voices, heartfelt sharing, and their enthusiasm as ushers. A new addition to this year’s event was the “cardboard confessionals” segment, where various youth shared tidbits of the hardships they had experienced prior to coming to CHM. After listening to the youth performers sing This is Me, from the new movie The Greatest Showman, all of the youth returned to stage to share their success stories since arriving at the Cov. There were a lot of tears in the audience as the youth flipped over their cardboard signs and words like “unhappy” “unemployed” “forgotten” changed into “happy” “employed” and “I am somebody.” It was truly a transformational evening for guests and youth alike.

Over 350 guests attended the event which raised close to $340,000 in support of Covenant House Michigan. You can view the Hour Detroit photo album from the event here.
