The Johnny Prill Family Presented a Free Grandparents Day Concert
The Johnny Prill family, encompassing four generations, celebrated National Grandparents Day on Sunday, September 8, 2019 by hosting their 12th annual free concert at Courtney Manor Nursing Home. The concert, at 1167 E. Hopson St, Bad Axe, was open to the public and ran from 1:30-3:30 pm. Special guest was The Joyful Sounds Quartet, a gospel singing group that sang some old time songs, plus some new ones, with a Southern Gospel flavor.
The Grandparents Day concert opened with a children’s group comprised of Johnny’s family members. They sang the official song of the day A Song for Grandma and Grandpa written by Johnny.
Prill’s newest composition Jesus Loves Children was released in 2019 to great reviews. The song, inspired by the Bible, shares the message of Jesus and His love for children. You can listen to the song on all digital platforms including Spotify and YouTube.
In 2011, after 25 years of voluntarily entertaining the residents of Courtney Manor Nursing Home, Prill won a “volunteer of the year” award from the Health Care Association of Michigan. In 2018, the Johnny Prill Family received messages of encouragement and thanks from Irish singer, Daniel O'Donnell and country singer Charlie Daniels. In 2019, Prill celebrates 33 years of volunteering at Courtney Manor.
