Jasper (Local Sources) – Will Read and Sing For Food (WRASFF) will hold a public show to benefit the Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition (SWICACC), based in Jasper, at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 5, at KlubHaus 61

Touring with Prine for many years, Wilber has played on every prominent stage imaginable; Carnegie Hall, London Palladium, Red Rocks, the Ryman, and appears on Prine’s Grammy award-winning album and two other Grammy nominated albums.

Wilber’s new CD, “Echoes,” will be released in April.

Special guest motivational speaker is Jenna Quinn, a triumphant survivor of sexual abuse and a valiant warrior against sexual abuse of children and adolescents. A poised and charismatic speaker with a Master Degree in Communications, Jenna has traveled the country making speeches to law-enforcement and abuse-prevention groups.

Her namesake bill, “Jenna’s Law,”passed the Texas senate, making it the first child abuse prevention law in the U.S mandating K-12 trainings for students, all school staff, and parents.

“Jenna’s Law” addresses sexual abuse and other forms of maltreatment.

Three other guests are singer-songwriters Andrea Wirth (Evansville) and Daniel Market (Muscle Shoals, Ala.) and writer Jon Webb, who is metro editor and columnist for the Evansville Courier & Press.

Regular WRASFF players in this show include Scott Saalman, Debbie Schuetter and Kyle Lueken
