Belmont and student organization Service Corps celebrated Earth Hour by hosting a special event featuring live acoustic performances from student acts Chadasha and Robert Kelly. The March 28 Earth Hour was a global movement in which millions of people around the world turned out their lights from 8:30-9:30 p.m. local time to make a statement of concern about the planet and climate change. The Belmont celebration took place on the sixth floor of the Curb Event Center garage, providing a perfect view of the downtown Nashville skyline.
