A Troubadour's Help for Haiti-James Taylor Performs an Intimate Eveneing

"When your down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
I'll come running,...
Winter, spring , summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And I'll be there...
You've got a freind..."

Somehow that voice has always been a part of the background music of our lives, always there when we needed a "friend". James Taylor's voice resonates through the soul of sound of our lives and he has been present whenever he felt his voice could make a difference as he does once again this weekend in aid for Haiti.

Of course James Taylor is not the only celebrity helping out but you know that "Help for Haiti, an Intimate Evening with James Taylor" will be without commercialism and exactly as it is billed, and a very special event. After selling out for Friday's performance in 90minutes, James Taylor offered to do a second concert this Saturday evening at The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center close to his home in Western Massachusetts. In addition James and his wife Kim will match the proceeds of each sale-tickets range form $100-$1,000 with the monies donated to Partners in Health's Stand for Haiti. Several Public Radio Stations will simulcast the concert with open phone lines for donations-WAMC and WBUR -please check your local public radio station and to make a secure donation visit or Partners in Health.

"Our hearts go out to everyone in Haiti," said Mr. Taylor. "We need to do everything we can to help the country recover after this tragic earthquake. I'm grateful to do my part and hope my neighbors here in the Berkshires will join me and be as generous as possible."
