BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS 32ND STEAK & BURGER DINNER FEATURES “A NIGHT OF PERFORMANCE, ART, AND IMPACT” STARRING BGCMT CLUB MEMBERS, ALUMNI AND BREAKOUT R & B WARNER RECORDING ARTIST BREN JOY
FRANKLIN, TN (04/20/21) – R & B Warner recording artist, Bren Joy, will headline a talented line-up of Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee (BGCMT) youth and alumni performers during the 32nd Annual Steak & Burger Dinner. With tremendous vocal range, deft songwriting chops, piano virtuosity, and undeniable charisma, Bren Joy integrates pop universality into unpredictable R&B. Born and raised in Nashville, he introduced himself with the independent debut EP Twenties in 2019 before joining the Warner Music Family in 2020. Singles “Sweet” (feat. Landon Sears) and “Henny in the Hamptons” generated over 15 million global streams. Vulture named the latter on its “Best New Songs List” and The Tennessean proclaimed him one of the “Nashville Artists To Watch 2020.” In 2020, Big Loud Management brought Bren to Warner Records and released new music that’s fresh and timeless like the artist. He’s received honorable mentions from Billboard, American Songwriter, Rated R&B, and more. Along the way, Bren has shared the stage with everyone from Jhené Aiko to Megan Thee Stallion. Bren presents a new paradigm for R&B and pop with his musicality and undeniable voice.
Notable BGCMT performers include Club members: Zachary (11), Melviona (13), and Jehlin (17). Additionally, in a “Where are they now” segment, BGCMT Alumni will participate. Alumni include: Bailey Jones, Kearsten Bowie, and Quintavious Johnson (a finalist on the ninth season of America’s Got Talent, placing fifth in the competition).
The 2021 Steak & Burger Dinner will be held virtually on Thursday, May 13, from 6:30 to 7:30PM. In addition to performances and an online auction, Richard “Dick” Tennent will be presented the “Ed Moody Award of Excellence.” The Ed Moody Award recognizes an individual or organization that has made a lasting impact on BGCMT and the Williamson County community.
