    Some of you may not have known Mark Keeley personally, but his story will remain ingrained in the minds of Philadelphians forever.

    The 19-year-old was a casuality of the Philadelphia Gas Works explosion in Northeast Philadelphia on January 18, 2011.

    On July 27, the PGW worker would have celebrated his 20th birthday -- and to pay tribute to the life of a man cut much too short, friends and family have started a Facebook page to try and get Mark's favorite band, Mumford & Sons, to play a special tribute concert on his birthday.

    They're asking for your help in urging the band to come to Philadelphia this summer. In fact, friends and family even held a rally on Thursday to help get the word out.
