Today I received a wonderful message from Louise Gallagher at Dare Boldly that I felt I must share with everyone
“Ahhhh…. Stand by Me… Ben E. King…. Years ago, when I worked at an adult homeless shelter, I started an art program called, The POssibibilities Project — it included music.
One of the most amazing things we did was create a recording of Stand by Me — with musicans who were clients of the shelter as well as musicians from the community at large — and then, we held a concert and… Ben E King happened to be in town recording at a studio — he agreed to come and sing with those who were in the recording!
It was amazing — Only myself and a couple of people knew he was coming – at the end of the evening, Ben E King walked onto the stage as the performers prepared to sing Stand by Me — it was a moment I shall never forget! Thank you for reminding me this morning of that project.”
