The Kessler says
The amazing Josh Weathers returns to the Kessler stage for the first time in over three years to headline Eric Nadel's 5th annual Birthday Benefit. You may recall that Weathers was on a fast track to stardom after his Kessler Theater performance of Whitney Houston's “I Will Always Love You” drew well over a million viewers on YouTube. But Josh decided it was more important for him to be a stay-at -home father than a touring musician, so he shut down his musical career.

He recently began doing shows again not to re-ignite his career but rather to raise funds to build a school and an orphanage in Modhampolly, India. “The Hope Home” is intended to house girls who otherwise would likely be victims of sex slavery, providing them shelter, food and education.

Weathers' unique soulful voice soars through his original tunes as well as covers that range from songs by Adele to those of his idol, Smokey Robinson. This will be a full band show.

Long-time Kessler favorite Daphne Willis is Eric Nadel's favorite singer-songwriter and performed at his National Baseball Hall of Fame induction in 2014. She has grown in recent years from a folk artist to a budding pop-rock sensation, whose current single, “Done with Being Done”, was co-written with Meghan Trainor. Signed last year to a publishing deal with Sony/ATV, Daphne has been prolific in writing songs for TV, films and other artists. Her recent CD, “Live to Try”, was largely co-written and recorded with John Oates, who has been an outspoken advocate on her behalf.

Proceeds from the Birthday Benefit go to Focus On Teens, which has helped address the immediate needs of over 2,000 homeless teens since its founding in 2014. They have presented suicide and drug prevention programs to hundreds more. Your ticket purchases and donations help them serve homeless teens who otherwise would go hungry, drop out of school and possibly never know that there are people who care about them and their future.

The Hope Home, Josh Weathers' school-orphanage project in India, will share in the proceeds of this year's concert.
