My good friend and neighbor Terrence Wilson, world renowned concert pianist and Grammy nominated recipient was burned out of his apartment on Saturday afternoon on Clairemont Avenue in Montclair New Jersey. He is safely staying with me at my home where I am doing everything humanly possible to restore his life. Thank God I have a piano so that he can continue to practice and rehearse For his up coming dates. He lost just about everything including his piano which he relied on immensely. He basically walked away with the shirt on his back but later the fire department escorted him in to the building just so that he can grab whatever he could salvage which did include his laptop, power cord and passport, which he desperately needs in order to continue to travel for work. Times are hard for just about everyone but when a tragedy like this strikes it can be devastating. What ever you can do, donate or give he will greatly appreciate it. Let's get this incredible artist back on track so that all he has to worry about is his career and making beautiful music around the world again. I was there to witness the tragedy and it looked like a movie set. There were many people affected by this fire and the probable cause was yet to be determined.
Thank you and God bless. Dwight

Terrence, is in shock over the outpouring from not only his friends and family but also the support from his musical family and friends. Your donations have helped to keep his spirit up, I have watched him weep over every message from each and every one of you. As you all know it is extremely difficult to survive in the classical world with out support but those of you who do appreciate the music and gift that he brings to the world knows that we need him back on his feet. So let's keep it going, we reached the small goal in donations that I have requested but as you know, it takes a lot more than $5000 to get back on your feet. Tell a friend and link them to this go fund it, so that Terrence Wilson will only have to be concerned with making more beautiful music. Thank you and God bless Dwight Brown
I have created a Photoblend so that you can see the image of Terance and the devastation that was caused by this deadly fire over his prize possession, his piano.
