A group of Kansas City-loving community members has created KC Hearts, a weekly series of uplifting activities that everyone can do together, even while staying physically apart.
The first event featured a citywide tailgate as a “pre-game” activity for the NFL Draft. Last week, the second activity encouraged Kansas City to show their hearts through simple surprises and gifts for neighbors, friends, and strangers on May Day.
For week three, KC Hearts is calling all musicians to pick up their favorite instrument at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 8, and perform solo concerts from a yard, neighborhood, balcony, or porch. All Kansas Citians will then be encouraged to sing, stomp, or clap along at 7 p.m. to “Lean on Me” and share their KC pride with neighbors, friends, and community.
Musicians are encouraged to sign-up and share their concert locations which will be promoted through KC Hearts. Kansas City will let their hearts beat together and everyone is encouraged to check out the performances happening in their neighborhood from a safe social distance.
