2014 Benefit Concert Performers


In an age where music is more about fiction and fantasy, leading to disillusionment and despair, Dae-Lee engages listeners with words of hope and truth.

As an independent artist of six years, Dae-Lee remains poised to reach the world with his music. With the release of “The Great Progression”, his latest free promotional project, Dae-Lee caught many off guard with multiple collaborations with various industry heavy weight artists. The presence of GRAMMY nominee and Stellar award winning Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Hip-Hop veteran KJ-52, Travis Greene, Rhema Soul and K-Drama demanded the listening audience to stop and take note. What many don’t realize is Dae-Lee’s 10 years of experience behind the scenes as a producer for many of these award-winning artists is what enabled him to garner the respect and presence of some of the best in the industry on his latest project.

Now with his eyes set on the release of his debut album in 2014, Dae-Lee looks to shake up the musical landscape with a new sound that he hopes will break genre barriers and bring unity among music lovers.

Gabriel Bello

Gabriel’s story doesn’t quite go like the rest.

He was born into a musical family in Lawrence, MA, Gabriel Bienvenido Bello.
Gabriel’s family relocated in his youth to the quiet college town of DeLand, FL. Here he spent most of his young adult life singing in church choirs and learning to play the saxophone. He was accepted at Lee University in Cleveland, TN and began a promising career in music. While attending college, he was feeling sick one day and was shocked to find out from his doctors that it was more serious than he had thought. Gabriel was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease (lymphoma) and had to leave school in order to endure six months of chemotherapy & radiation treatment.

In the midst of his treatment he was invited to play for Ron Kenoly, during this event he was miraculously healed and has been in remission ever since.

Gabriel continues his pursuit of music in all its forms: artist, producer, songwriter, vocalist, saxophonist, keyboardist, flutist and he arranges vocals and instruments. He has worked in and produced almost every musical style from hip-hop to bluegrass.

Gabriel’s self titled debut smooth jazz album released June 21 2011 at #1 on Billboard Smooth Jazz Charts and #2 Jazz Albums.

Gabriel has performed with Alvin Slaughter, Gary Oliver, Ron Kenoly, Geron Davis, Christ Church Choir, Jentzen Franklin, and Rascal Flatts just to name a few.
