Laurent Neu, member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be performing the national anthem, as part of a night full of entertainment for “Brain Injury Awareness Night.” In 1998 after celebrating the 4th of July with his family, Laurent’s world flipped upside down. He was riding his motorcycle home and was hit by a driver. At the time of his accident, while laying in a coma, doctors told Laurent’s family that he had just a 25% chance of surviving his traumatic brain injury. Twelve years later he proudly accepted a seat on the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, a feat that required persistence in music and dedication to overcoming the long term affects of his injury. Laurent enjoys his new lease on life, and sings to his fullest, realizing that music, just like life, is a gift that needs to be cherished. Neu’s performance is part of an all star line up, of guest appearances by those who have recovered from brain injury.  BIAU hopes to bring awareness about Brain Injury to the public’s attention, and to stress the importance of Being HeadSmart, in preventing injuries.

The Brain Injury Alliance of Utah, BIAU, is a non-profit community organization in Murray, UT, that serves Utah residents who have been affected by a brain injury. They provide resources, education and a shared community connection through events and each other.
