Eliot Sloan, vocalist for Blessid Union of Souls, will perform with South Dearborn High School students in the Hear 2 Heal concerts on May 2 and 3.

(Aurora, Ind.) – Music fans who attend two South Dearborn High School productions this weekend will be treated to a collaboration between the school’s music department and the frontman for a popular tri-state area band.

Blessid Union of Souls had three pop rock hits in the 1990s including “I Believe”, “Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me For Me)”, and “I Wanna Be There”. The voice singing many of those hits is Eliot Sloan.

Sloan will join the South Dearborn High School Music Department for two shows titled “Hear 2 Heal” at the high school auditorium in Aurora on Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3. Both shows will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The Hear 2 Heal Project is a series of school-involved concerts giving students the opportunity to address a variety of subjects through Blessid Union of Souls songs.

“We are the seventh high school to do the show. I received an email from (Sloan) last Spring. I grew up listening to Blessid Union of Souls music and thought this was a unique opportunity for our students,” says South Dearborn Show Choir director Justin Selmeyer.

Tickets are available at the door or in advance at the South Dearborn High School office or participating South Dearborn students. Cost for a ticket is $8, senior citizens and South Dearborn students $6, or for a family of four $25.
