    Like A King / I'll Rise

Royal Festival

Monday, July 17, 1995 at 7:00pm PDT

Guru was late for his soundcheck so Ben had to go on without preparation. He and the band took the stage as the opening act amongst a loud chatter from an unsuspecting crowd. While the show progressed, the crowd began to warm up and wake up to the music. During the "I'll Rise" a capella segment when Ben sang without a mic, there was no noise from the 2000+ seat venue. After that final song, Ben was rewarded with a storm of applause and a standing ovation. He became the hero of the evening.
