Posted in News on June 24, 2008

In effort to help educationally underserved and economically disadvantage students attain their goals of higher education, BMI songwriters Charles Fox (“Killing Me Softly”), Melissa Manchester (“Midnight Blue”) and duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil (“You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”), will perform at the Fulfillment Fund’s “The Songs of Our Lives” benefit concert. The benefit, to be held at The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles on June 30 at 7:30 p.m., will also feature performances by Alan Bergman (“The Way We Were”), Hall David (“Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head”), songwriting duo Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller (“Stand By Me”), Paul Williams (“Evergreen”), Bill Withers (“Ain’t No Sunshine) and special guest artists Steve Tyrell and Kori Withers.

Established in 1977, the Fulfillment Fund has three main goals: helping disadvantaged students graduate from high school; increasing the number who go on to college; and helping them successfully complete college and transition into the working world. The Fund provides two programs that together provide over ten years of critical support for students, starting in the ninth grade and continuing through college, jointly producing systematic change.
