478 Sings United


United Way of Central Georgia and Mercer University, alongside Visit Macon and 100.9 The Creek, are excited to announce a partnership in the first ever 478 Sings United. The event will celebrate and recognize all the great local musical talent right here in Central Georgia all while giving back to the community in dire need during the COVID-19 crisis. The virtual singing competition and fundraiser is for local bands and musicians. 

The Grand Prize winner will receive $2,500, plus perform at the opening Mercer Bears football game on September 12th as part of the 2020 Ford Mercer Concert Series, and record a track at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon.

All money raised during tournament voting will benefit the Central Georgia COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund.

The winner of each match-up is based on the number of votes in the United Way fundraiser with each $1 vote going straight to the Central Georgia COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund. 

100% of proceeds raised during voting go straight to the Central Georgia community! 




Together, we've raised $84,131 to help people in need in Central Georgia.
