AMERICA’S GREAT SONGWRITERS TO PERFORM “THE SONGS OF OUR LIVES†AT 3RD ANNUAL CONCERT TO BENEFIT THE FULFILLMENT FUND

The Songs of Our Lives, Volume III concert to benefit Fulfillment Fund students will take place on Monday, June 14, 2010 at the Wadsworth Theatre. The multi-award winning artist lineup includes: Stephen Bishop (“On and On,†“Separate Lives,†“It Might Be You†), L. Russell Brown (“Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree,†“Knock Three Times,†“Sock It to me Baby†), Mac Davis (“Baby Don’t Get Hooked on Me,†“Stop and Smell the Roses†, “In the Ghetto†), Charles Fox (“Ready to Take a Chance Again,†“Killing Me Softly†), Dean Pitchford (“Fame,†“Footloose,†“Let’s Hear It For The Boys†), Neil Sedaka (“Breaking Up Is Hard To Do,†“Love Will Keep Us Together,“ “Laughter in the Rain†) with special award-winning guest star Tony Orlando. Actor, writer and stand-up comedian Paul Reiser is set to host and will perform with special guest British singer songwriter Julia Fordham.

More than 1,000 guests are expected to attend this star-studded event co-chaired by Del Bryant (BMI), Dan Foliart (SCL), Dave Johnson (Warner/Chappell Music), Quincy Jones, Jay Landers (Fulfillment Fund Board), Milt Okun (Cherry Lane Music) and Paul Williams (ASCAP).

The Songs of Our Lives Benefit Concert is the brain-child of songwriter Charles Fox, who along with his wife Joan, is a Fulfillment Fund Board Member. Fox’s vision was to combine entertainment and philanthropy in a meaningful way to support the Fulfillment Fund’s important work in the community. According to Fox, “The evening has always been a huge success because of the intimacy and the renowned artists that participate. All of these incredible songwriters come together, on one stage, to perform their greatest and most famous songs to an audience who will be thrilled to hear some of their favorite songs sung by the artists who wrote them. At the same time, they will be helping to support the education of at-risk students by providing them with the resources to go to college.â€

Performers will take center stage promptly at 7:30pm (Will Call opens at 6:30pm). Giving opportunities range from individual balcony seats starting at $150 to sponsor packages starting at $2,500. All tickets must be reserved in advance (limited number of seats available).

The Wadsworth Theatre is located on the grounds of the Veteran’s Administration at 11301 Wilshire Blvd. at Federal Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90073. To purchase tickets, please call (310) 201-5033 or email Lauran@lpaevents.com. For more information, please visit www.fulfillment.org/concert.
