The first Benefit Concert

On June 14, 2012, Ben & I hosted & performed a Benefit Concert at Thalian Hall for the Special Olympics’ “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign.  The concert was a family event where Ben & I sang Broadway music intertwined with powerful narration delivered by our two oldest daughters and our thirty-one year old friend, Brian, who has Down Syndrome.  The event raised thousands of dollars for the campaign, but more importantly it raised awareness.  The focus of the evening was acceptance and inclusion where attendees were educated on the campaign and encouraged to make the pledge to “End the Word”.  The evening culminated with the World Premiere of our new song, “It Starts With a Voice.” 100% of the evening’s proceeds were donated to Special Olympics’ “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign.
