‘I want to use my voice and platform to do something about it and help in any small way I can.
‘Music is my life so a concert to raise much needed funds seemed like the perfect idea. We have some amazing artists signed up and I’m really excited, it’s gonna be an amazing night.’Credit: Original article published here.
