At the pinnacle of a successful musical rap career, Nimesh Patel (aka Nimo) felt empty. He abandoned fame and its material trappings, simplified his life and discovered his purpose in service to others. Moving to India, he dedicated himself to children who live in the slums. Nimo’s musical inspiration returned in a different spirit, one that reflects the heart of humanity.
When he heard about the free scholarships Plymouth offered to children of Mary’s Place for the Summer Music and Arts Camp, Nimo offered to share a free concert in the Sanctuary, at 3 pm, Tuesday, June 23. Children from the camp and the public are invited to come and hear his musical message of hope in the lively, interactive musical event.
“We are thrilled to have Nimo bring his musical talent and positive energy to inspire the children,” said Rosemary Hashimoto, Coordinator of Youth and Family ministries.
He created a musical show with 16 children from the slum entitled Ekatva and toured the world with ‘his’ kids to offer their message of unity and hope. Nimo recently released a labor-of-love album, co-produced two music videos on kindness and gratitude and embarked on a music pilgrimage in the spirit of finding, practicing and sharing small acts with great love.
