Singer Pauline Wells Leads Boston's Tribute to 9/11

Boston is putting on a special 9/11 Tribute on Friday, September 11, featuring Irish-American singer Pauline Wells, at the historic Wilbur Theatre in downtown Boston. The concert benefits the charity group, Cops for Kids with Cancer.

Wells, who is a sergeant detective in the major case unit of the Cambridge Police Department, is being joined by the renowned Boston Police Gaelic Column of Pipes and Drums, as well as local Irish traditional band Devri.

As a special tribute to the evening, 40 members of the NYPD Emerald Society of Pipes and Drums are traveling from New York City to offer a special tribute.

Wells is a popular singer in the Boston area and has performed the National Anthem at dozens of venues, including the Massachusetts State House, Faneuil Hall and Fenway Park. She and her band Devri also perform at local Irish pubs and cultural venues around Boston.

Each March, Wells and her husband, Police Chief Richard G. Wells, Jr. of the Milton Police Department, organize a concert in Milton entitled "A Celtic Crossing" that raises money for the Jimmy Fund and the Pan Mass Challenge.
