Spark of Hope
Spark of Hope Campaign and Awards Ceremony
Each year, more than 400 SPSF NWA supporters and corporate sponsors attend this dinner and awards ceremony to honor SPSF NWA’s supporters and students. At the event the prestigious Spark of Hope awards are presented to an individual, community partner, and corporate sponsor. Sponsorship levels range from $1,000 to $25,000.
This year, SPSF NWA is pleased to announce Barrett Baber will be joining us to deliver an inspirational message for our students and supporters.
NBC’s The Voice finalist Barrett Baber gave millions of viewers an unforgettable introduction to a true artist and entertainer. With high-energy vocal performances, Barrett owned the stage from start to finish, and his unique, soulful country sound stood out among the entire show as something truly special. Blake Shelton says, “Barrett sounds like no one else on country radio. He can be a star in Country Music.”
Also winner of the national CBS Grammy Gig of a Lifetime in 2014, Barrett continues to deliver. Baber’s recently released full-length album “A Room Full Of Fighters” debuted in the top 10 on iTunes Top 100 Album Charts in 2016.
An Arkansas native, Barrett’s inspiration for singing and creating music started with frequent visits to Memphis, TN only a few miles from his hometown in Marion, Arkansas. On Beale Street and the corners of downtown Memphis, his exposure to street performers and artists steeped in Blues, R&B, Country and Rock would become the influence for his vocal style. From Sam Cooke to Levon helm, you can hear the past in Barrett’s tone, all wrapped in a fresh sound delivered by one of the Southeast’s hottest artists.
- The 2017 Spark of Hope will be held Thursday, June 22nd at the Fayetteville Town Center.
- The evening begins with a reception at 6:00 p.m. Dinner and program at 7:00 p.m.
