    Ben Speaks Louder Than Words, a 501c(3) nonprofit dedicated to supporting youth, will hold its second annual “A Concert To Remember” on November 11, 2011 at the First Baptist Church (848 Beacon St., Newton Centre, Mass.).

    The concert will provide much-needed funds for the organization’s 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 on 11/11/11 features music, resources, and a moving candle lighting ceremony to remember loved ones lost recently. Words, artistic expression, and song will offer friendship and understanding to those mourning the loss of a loved one.

    Grammy-nominated artist Karen Taylor-Good serves as the concert’s featured performer, among many other local acts taking the stage. With a handful of international radio hits and powerful songs recorded by such artists as Laura Branigan, Melissa Manchester, Al Jarreau, and Patty Loveless, Ms. Taylor-Good has received several “Songwriter of the Year” awards alongside her Grammy nomination.

    Karen Taylor-Good’s music is known for its healing properties. She has donated her time and talent to The Planet Earth Project, Compassionate Friends, ChildHelp USA, The National Hospice Foundation, and Habitat for Humanity. Her reputation for tackling tough subjects makes her a fitting headliner for Ben Speaks’ second annual fundraising concert.

    Thanks to generous sponsors, admission is by voluntary donation, a suggested $20-25. Space is limited -- reservations are encouraged by going to the organization’s website. All net proceeds benefit Ben Speaks, an 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 by Visions Tattoo, Piercing & Art Gallery, Dr. Scott Bedell in Medfield, and Kids Out To Play.
