A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF), a registered 501 non-governmental organization established in 1991 committed to delivering crucial and life-saving medical relief and humanitarian aid where it is needed most.

Ben Black has been a performer on the Seattle jazz scene since 1985, and spent two years as a music student at Cornish College. His career also spans new opera-theatre, cabaret, and African drumming and dance. He studied jazz improvisation for a number of years with pioneer jazz vocalist, Jay Clayton. 

Ben is proud of his multicultural background which includes ancestors from Armenia, Slovenia, Germany, Scotland and Ireland. He grew up in a military family in which there were a number of musicians. As he was growing up, his parents exposed him to stellar jazz vocalists and instrumentalists of the times, including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Sergio Mendes and Brazil ’66, and many of the great Broadway musicals of the 20th century.

Ben’s expressive, androgynous style of singing has allowed him the unique capability of performing multiple styles of music. Channeling different genres in the music he writes and performs, Ben Black achieves his own unique sound. His performances are full of energy and passion which are a must see for any music lover or concert goer.

The concert will begin promptly at 5pm at Fountainhead Gallery. Please arrive early for general admission seating.
