Wendy Bell joins speakers & singers at Arise USA! event at Beaver park

BEAVER — Two national recording artists from Beaver County will perform, and speakers will address unity and change, at the Arise USA! event on July 21 at the gazebo in Beaver.
Karen Staley, who grew up in Hookstown, toured with Reba McEntire’s band, and wrote No. 1 songs for Faith Hill (“Take Me As I Am”), Michael Martin Murphy (“A Face in The Crowd”) and Tracy Byrd (ACM Song of The Year “Keeper of The Stars”), will sing.
So, too, will Brynn Marie, the Center Township resident who charted with “Bandaid on a Bullet Hole,” and opened for Pat Benatar.
Arise USA!’s event in Beaver lasts from 4 to 8 p.m. People can bring a lawn chair. Pastor Larry Bettencourt will lead a 6 p.m. prayer.
The speakers will include emcee Trent Loos, a sixth generation farmer from Illinois; Robert David Steele, a former Marine and CIA counterintelligence expert who created We The People – Unity for Integrity, seeking to the unify the populist right and left with people of color, Latinos, and all small parties with Independents to enact election reform; and Kevin D. Jenkins, the CEO of Urban Global Health Alliance, which states its mission is “to educate, empower and release urban communities and their leaders from decades of indoctrination and suppression; and to create effective public policy, which safeguards rights of equality.”
The event’s flier also lists as speakers conservative radio commentator and former Pittsburgh TV news anchor Wendy Bell; former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, a gun rights advocate and founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association; Jamie Sheffield from Audit The Vote PA, and Monaca High graduate Josh Himes, a former champion pro boxer.
Himes is the husband of singer Marie. Together, they appeared in two episodes of HGTV’s “House Hunters” and on the network primetime gameshow “Candy Crush,” using their platform to promote their nonprofit charity, Fight2Fight, where they use boxing training and music to bring hope and inspiration to everyday people fighting battles, such as wounded military members, those with autism, or people overcoming addiction.
The couple has been part of the 84-city, 50-state Arise USA! Tour, including dates in California, Seattle and Mount Rushmore.
“The tour stands for faith, family and freedom as that is the message being delivered,” Himes said. “Brynn is singing and speaking and I am speaking at all the events. We have our three children with us and Brynn’s dad to help with the kids. We have made quite the push for the tour to arrive in Beaver July 21, right across from the courthouse.”
This is a free event, though donations are appreciated, Himes said. The website is
The event’s flier calls this The Resurrection Tour, and says “one chance for change.”
Himes expounds on that: ” to fight for our faith, family and freedom. To build unity in the American people, and take pride in living in the USA.”
