Do you have the music in you? Have you ever found yourself walking down the street, wishing everyone can hear the theme music in your head? Now you can! He can do it! As an improvisational singer/songwriter, Ben Merens transforms your personal tale into song, singing for you immediately after hearing you share your story. For the past three years, Ben can be found performing his craft professionally on the first Saturday of each month at Pop More Corks in Lake Geneva.
