Richard Marx To Perform At Benefit Concert

06/08/2011
.
(PR) Richard Marx and other award-winning songwriters will perform their hits at The Songs of Our Lives concert to benefit the Fulfillment Fund a nonprofit organization which helps Los Angeles youth overcome obstacles in pursuit of their dreams of higher education on Monday, June 13 at 7:30 pm at the Wadsworth Theatre.

With actor Tony Danza as emcee, the concert will feature a special performance by the legendary songwriting duo Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox ("Killing Me Softly," "Ready to Take a Chance Again," theme from "Happy Days"), together on stage for the first time in 30 years.

"When I was young, I had opportunities and help in my education that were life-giving to me," said Fox, a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the event's producer. "The Songs of Our Lives is my way of paying it forward so that students in Los Angeles get the same opportunity to achieve their dreams."

The concert's lineup includes Richard Marx, writer of 13 #1 songs including "Hold On to the Nights" and "Right Here Waiting"; Allee Willis, writer of "I'll Be There for You" (Theme from "Friends") and "Boogie Wonderland," recorded by Earth, Wind & Fire; David Pack, writer of Ambrosia's chart-topping singles including "Biggest Part Of Me" and "You're The Only Woman"; Steve Dorff, whose #1 hits include "I Just Fall In Love Again," recorded by Anne Murray; Jeff Barry, who wrote The Crystals' "Da Doo Ron Ron" and The Ronettes' "Be My Baby"; and Felix Cavaliere, whose 1960s hits with The Rascals include "Good Lovin'," "Groovin'" and "People Got to Be Free."

The Fulfillment Fund is dedicated to providing first-generation, low-income students in Los Angeles with support to graduate from high school and go to college. Through classroom instruction, college counseling, mentoring and scholarships, the Fund transforms students' lives. Fulfillment Fund students graduate high school at a rate of 85% and of those who graduate, 91% go on to college. More: www.fulfillment.org.
