Jay Z’s Tidal music company is partnering with the city of Brooklyn to raise support for people affected by the various disasters that hit various cities in the US. The event will feature some of Marica’s bigest music stars such as Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown , Donnie McClurkin and others. According to a statement from Donnie McClurkin;
I am excited to be able to participate in helping those who have recently suffered such devastating catastrophes: 5 major Hurricanes, 3 deadly earthquakes, foods, loss of homes and the heartbreaking loss of lives! 2017 has been a year like we have never experienced before. And while politics cloud the issues and government does all that it can…we, together, can be “our brother’s keeper!”
On this Tuesday, October 17th, I, along with many others, will be a part of TIDAL X BROOKLYN …a disaster relief concert held at Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York! JAY-Z, myself and many other artists will lend our voices and resources to aid these weather ravaged areas and bring HOPE & HELP to countless people in need!
I encourage everyone to give to this great cause! Many times in troubled situations people will say “lets pray”…. Yes ! We should always pray and keep praying; but let’s not stop there! it’s time to add our WORK into the mix! Christianity teaches us that “faith without works is dead”! So, let’s step up and be counted!! EVERYONE! No division, no partisanship or politics, no religious or racial divides…let’s come together as family of HUMANITY! Some may say “well I can’t give very much…what will my “little” matter?” Let’s look at it this way: add your “little” with my “little” and others across this land ..and you’ll find that “little becomes much” and helps our brothers and sisters. Show real love….
The event will be hosted by Angie Martinez and will be streamed online. Time is 8pm ET, Tuesday 17th October 2017. Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York.
