LIMERICK — Jillian Jensen, the 23-year-old singer songwriter from Rochester, Massachusetts who wowed X-Factor judges and audiences in 2012 with her performance of Jessie J’s “Who You Are,” will give a benefit acoustic concert at Line Elementary School in Limerick on Monday, Oct. 12 at 3 p.m.

Jensen will perform with Limerick’s Brian Saulnier, “The Musical Medic,” to raise awareness and funding for the school’s anti-bullying program, Saulnier said in a news release.

Since her X-Factor bid, as well as making it into the top 30 semi-finalists in the 2014 American Idol competition, Jensen has been on a nationwide campaign as an advocate for anti-bullying, speaking at schools and universities to spread the message that bullying has lasting and hurtful effects, Saulnier said.

Saulnier, who bills himself as “The Musical Medic,” is a firefighter and EMT who plays acoustic guitar and sings for patients at Maine Medical Center. He met Jensen at one of her performances in Massachusetts this year, first introducing himself and then, surprisingly, finding himself on stage.

“At first I was going to just listen but then decided to meet her and introduce myself, which was very unusual for me,” said Saulnier in the release. “I tend to be socially anxious and felt pretty awkward. Well, we pretty much hit it off right away, and before the night was over she managed to get her guitar around my neck and have me perform a number as her musical guest.”

The duo hopes to entertain and inspire others to help prevent bullying at the Line Elementary School concert. As well as singing, Jensen will host a question and answer session with the audience and be available for a meet and greet session following the performance.

Tickets are $5 adults, $3 for ages 12- 18, and free for children under age 12. Tickets are available at the door at Line Elementary School, Route 11, on the Limerick/Newfield town line. Advance tickets are available at Limerick Public Library, 55 Washington St., Limerick. The Limerick Public Library and the Limerick Fire/EMS Department are collaborating with Jensen and Saulnier to organize the community fundraising event to benefit the Line Elementary School Anti-bullying program.

“I hope to bring smiles and happiness to the audience with my music. Jillian has quite a story of being bullied and all the emotional struggles that being bullied creates, followed by her story of perseverance, triumph and success which followed,” said Saulnier. “I am hopeful she will help and inspire others just like she inspires me.”

As well as his free concerts at Maine medical Center, Saulnier also performs at weddings, funerals, festivals, retirement communities and nursing home programs. He was recently featured at the Lyman Community Day Festival.
