Nashville (WSMV) – A Nashville songwriter is serving up more than fresh songs and catchy lyrics. 23-year old Ava Suppelsa is bringing hope to the homeless community of Nashville.
Suppelsa, who moved to Nashville at age 19 to pursue a career in songwriting, scored her first publishing deal with King Pen Music and Warner Chappell music in early 2020. Within months she started a non-profit organization at the height of COVID lockdowns.
“I started driving around the city as a way to get out of my apartment and I started to notice how many unhoused people there are [in Nashville],” says Suppelsa. “It’s really heart-breaking for me to see those people and not have something to give.”
