 To the delight of a capacity crowd of students and members of the community, Brian Freeland, aka World Be Free, performed the SU theme song last night during a benefit concert that also included Cassidy and Fabolous at Goldstein Auditorium.

For one song Be Free shared the stage with soulful singer Erika Lovette. He also got a rousing response during a song called “Dear Music.”
