Benin has designed a unique concert format for JUST LIKE A WOMAN: each artist performs twice, once a cover of a song written by or the success of which is largely attributed to a woman, then performs again with an original composition. This format is part of what’s kept audiences returning year after year. You get to hear familiar music in a new way, and you get to hear new music from established and emerging artists.


Also an education professional, Rhonda Benin knows how important it is to present opportunities for new experiences. She has set up an Indiegogo Campaign for young women to attend JLAW. Not surprisingly, the campaign has received national and local support and Benin hopes that even more young girls will be able to attend this year’s March 31 event.
