Greenville – The City of Greenville is set to host a big Christmas concert next month. The City's own Christian rock band, MercyMe, is coming home for two big holiday concerts. The band hit the top of the charts with the 2001 single "I Can Only Imagine", and is scheduled to appear at 7 p.m. both Dec. 6 and Dec. 7 at Municipal Auditorium for the "Mercy Me Is Home For The Holidays" event. Portions of the proceeds will benefit the "Imagine A Cure" foundation, which helps the fight against juvenile diabetes. Information on the upcoming concerts is available at www.mercyme.org.
