This Saturday, Grammy award-winning artist Jason Mraz, along with Timmy Curran and Bushwalla, will perform at Cord Progression at the Long Beach Terrace Theater in support of SDSU alumni Jesse Billauer.
In 1996, at the age of 17, Billauer severed his spinal cord at the C6 level in a surfing accident. A recent movie, Jesse's Story, documented his inspirational plight. Billauer is now a quadriplegic surfer and motivational speaker who operates the nonprofit Life Rolls On with his brother Josh Billauer, who is a San Diego resident.
Recently merged with the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, Life Rolls On "is the story of able-bodied individuals working in concert with those with spinal-cord injury to motivate each other with the inspirational message of achievement in the face of extreme adversity."
During the musical performances, Cord Progression will be utilizing an array of emotional, compelling clips from Jesse's Story as background imagery. Additionally, special guests and surprises are promised.
