King Concert Gets Some Idol Backup
Sy will sing back up for an all star line up including Garth Brooks, Queen Latifah, Joss Stone, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Carlos Santana, Robin Thicke, Bebe Winans, Cece Winans and Jessye Norman for a once-in-a-lifetime concert. Whoopi Goldberg has joined as a special guest presenter and Grammy-award winner Alicia Keys, along with Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino, Petra Nemcova and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges.
The Dream Concert will embody the ideals of hope, love, democracy, and justice for which Dr. King stood. The concert will capture the essence of his lasting teaching by joining together musicians from across genre lines, featuring unique musical combinations not usually found on the same stage. The Memorial Foundation has already raised $81 million of the $100 million needed to complete and maintain the memorial, and this event will help secure the additional funds. - more info
