Financial help for Nathan Johnson of Josh Wilson's band

Support After Tragedy

THE GUITAR player with American singer/songwriter Josh Wilson, Nathan Johnson, is receiving help and support after the tragic death of his wife. In the early hours of Tuesday 27th June Johnson's wife Meg delivered a baby girl. Eilee Kate Johnson was born without complications but a few hours later Meg developed medical complications and at 11am she died. Josh Wilson went on to a GoFundMe page to bring news of the tragedy to his fans. Wilson wrote, "Needless to say, Nathan is devastated. There are no words for this so I won't really say much more. Here is what I know. Nathan is a wonderful man and an amazing father. He loves his daughter dearly. How can you help? You can give time, meals and money. So let's raise enough money for Nathan to get off the road for at least six months. Let's cover his bills and meals so he doesn't have to think about any of that. Let's sleep over his house and feed sweet Eilee so Nate can rest." After the message in just six hours nearly $140,000 was raised. Over $300,000 was raised in less than 24 hours. CR
