Unity Concert Brings Community Together

Unity Concert Brings Community Together

Last Sunday, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sacramento hosted our first ever Unity Concert to kick off Build for Unity 2019 – our interfaith initiative which brings together people of different religions, colors, and backgrounds to put to down their differences and come together to build hope, homes, and unity.

Led by acclaimed choral director Steven Johnson, the Unity Concert featured musicians from our local Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, and Christian faith communities who joined the Sacramento Children’s Chorus, Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus, and St. John’s Choir to bring us beautiful renditions of original and re-imagined songs in a multitude of languages and styles to showcase the power and beauty of uniting our different voices together as one.

Many voices were heard at the Unity Concert, as different faiths came together for a common cause.


In a time when division, hate, and tragedy can often dominate our surroundings, we were truly overwhelmed and inspired to see so many people of different faiths, ages, and backgrounds coming together to take part in and support Build for Unity 2019 and our first ever Unity Concert. 

Special thank you to our keynote speaker Mayor Darrell Steinberg, as well as all those who lent their support, passion and voices to helping us come together for this incredible night of unity and song.
