Coley’s Golan Heights rock concert will feature songs from throughout his career, and performances by American songwriter Shakeh and harpist Susan Mashiyama. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to ILAN Israel, a nonprofit that assists special needs children and their families.

“I have always been in love with Israel, even as a young child,” Coley said in a statement. “It fascinates me, captivates me, and stirs my imagination and soul. When asked to do this show for ILAN, I got excited to do something so worthwhile for children.”  

The concert will coincide with the release of Coley’s new double album, “Eclectic,” which includes a new instrumental track dedicated to Holocaust survivors called, “Quiet Victory.” 

Coley is best known for his role in a rock duo with Danny Wayland “England Dan” Seals and has earned multi-platinum, platinum and gold records around the world, as well as No. 1 hits in Israel.
