Bob Bennett could use our help…

Update: Thanks to all who responded to a call to help singer/songwriter Bob Bennett manage a three-month convalescence after having undergone open heart surgury.  
In less than a week, we’ve raised $12,000 which corresponds almost exactly with three months average North American salary (according to a google search.)  Needless to say, Bob and his wife Elena are overwhelmed and grateful.  
It’s very touching to me (as well as every musician I’ve talked to) that there came such a swift showing of support.  Thank you all so very much.  It is a joy serving you!!

Many of you know and love the music of Bob Bennett, my long-time friend from California, who has a music vocation similar to mine.

In the past, my company, Signpost Music, has sold Bob’s albums. He contributed to the Livingroom Series in 2001, and went on tour with Carolyn Arends and myself to promote our complimentary solo albums. That tour remains one of the fondest memories of my career.

Recently, Bob underwent major heart surgery, and has had to take several months off from performing, which is the main source of his income. So… Bob could really use our help to get though this short-term financial strain.

If you are interested in helping, we are taking donations (non-receiptable) through Signpost Music. If you donate more than $30, I’ll send you a complimentary Bob Bennett CD. 100% of the proceeds will go to Bob.

It would be great if we could raise several thousand dollars in the next few weeks.  We’ll run this until the end of September. Every few days I’ll post the amount donated on this page, so check back to see how we’re doing.

Let’s help this faithful servant!  

Thanks so much.

Steve Bell

UPDATE:  GOAL REACHED!! Thank you for your generosity!

Amount raised to date: $12,000

  1. Elena and I are BLOWN AWAY by this … Mr. I-Use-Words-for-a-Living is, frankly, speechless. My thanks to all who considered this and contributed. These funds will be used to dig us a good way out of the hole we find ourselves in. (Ah, American Health Care … fantastic, but pricey!) But … I am happy to report that I am progressing nicely and hoping to get back to work in full very soon. In the Hope of the Gospel, Bob Bennett.

  2. Bob its a blessing knowing that you’re doing better. Your music and the wisdom within the lyrics has blessed me in so many ways. It’s my prayer that God will continue to heal you so you may continue on the work of the Lord.

  3. Bob,
    My wife and I remember when you first starting out. We had you share at Foursquare Church in Anaheim at our Saturday Night Concert series. You were one of our first artists and we were Blessed to have you come and share. We continue to pray for you and your family.
    In His Love,
    Kin & Jan Stewart

  4. Bob Bennet,
    You cannot know what your music has meant to me & my crooked journey with our Lord. His hand is upon you and His words speak loudly in Moutain Cathedral, You’re Always Welcome Here, Carpenter Gone Bad & Come & See, among others. He has comforted & encouraged me many times with your music. Thank you.

  5. Bob,
    I’m one of your most committed fans from England uk. Your music leaves a deep impression on me that cannot br put into words. Your a walking, talking genius, the best song write that I know out there!
    I’ve brought any of your stuff I can lay my hand on. The Lord grant you continues health and well being.
    I’m so glad you have someone in your life you can share all that love with. God bless and keep you.
