BEN SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS PRESENTS
"A CONCERT TO REMEMBER" ON SEPTEMBER 29, 2012 FEATURING EMMY AWARD WINNER FAITH RIVERA
Ben Speaks Louder Than Words, a 501c(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting youth, will hold its third annual "A Concert To Remember" on September 29, 2012 at the First Baptist Church (848 Beacon St., Newton Centre, Mass.). The concert will provide much-needed funds for the organization¹s program C.A.R.E. (Creating Alternative Resources for Expression), and invites parents and friends to remember loved ones who have lost their lives tragically.
The concert runs from 7-10 p.m., and features music, resources, and a moving candle lighting ceremony to remember loved ones lost recently. Words, artistic expression, and song will offer inspiration, friendship and understanding to anyone mourning the loss of a loved one.
Emmy award winner Faith Rivera serves as the concert¹s featured performer, among many other local acts taking the stage. Faith serves as a Peace Ambassador for Fine & Performing Artists for World Peace, and was named the 2008 Biggest Giver for the HUB/Manifest Foundation providing food, water, education, and micro-loans to women and children around the globe. Her upbeat music has been used for television, humanitarian organizations, spiritual centers, and more. She has performed at the Hollywood Bowl and with the Honolulu Symphony, and has sung with Luther Vandross, Neil Young, and other popular artists.
"Everyone struggles with self-doubt. So an organization like Ben Speaks that is sharing an uplifting message of self-worth is doing such needed work in the world and it’s definitely in line with the intention of my own music," said Rivera. "I am honored and excited to be a part of “A Concert to Remember” and even more, to be part of a community that works to empower teens from the inside out."
Thanks to generous sponsors, admission is by voluntary donation, a suggested $20-25. Space is limited -- reservations are encouraged.

All net proceeds benefit Ben Speaks, a 501c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering our youth to be the change they want to see in the world, and providing positive outlets for young people to channel their emotions.
Ben Speaks is generously supported in part by Visions Tattoo, Piercing & Fine Art Gallery, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Middlesex Bank.
More About First Baptist Church In Newton
The First Baptist Church in Newton has a history dating back more than 200 years, when it first gathered in a building near its present site in Newton Centre. The congregation welcomes members from all walks of life into its sanctuary, which rests in a historical and impressive church built in 1888. The bell tower, complete with 11 chimes, was installed in 1899 and renamed the "America" bell tower in 1932 for the 100th anniversary of the writing of "America."
First Baptist Church in Newton was voted the second best place to hear live music in Newton in a poll conducted by Patch and is home to the Newton Philharmonia Orchestra and the Newton Cultural Alliance. Lead by Sr. Minister and professional musician Sean Witty, FBC also offers gatherings and education for kids, students and adults.
Located in Newton Centre, the entrance to the church's large parking lot is located off Centre Street.
