NBC NEWS' TODAY SHOW, WARNER MUSIC GROUP AND HABITAT FOR HUMANITY INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCE ARTIST LINEUP FOR HURRICANE RELIEF INITIATIVE
NEW YORK, September 23, 2005.
NBC News Today show, Habitat for Humanity International and Warner Music Group Corp. announced today that Warner Bros. Records recording artist Josh Groban and Elektra/Atlantic recording artist Tracy Chapman will headline concert performances in New Yorks Rockefeller Plaza on Monday, September 26, 2005.
The special concert performances are in support of Make a Difference Today, the hurricane relief initiative announced earlier this week from NBC News Today show, WMG and Habitat for Humanity International.
This unprecedented and truly unique hurricane relief effort begins on Monday, September 26th when WMG helps turn Rockefeller Plaza into "Humanity Plaza" for five days as homes are literally built around the clock for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
The goal of Make a Difference Today is to rebuild a minimum of 100 homes in the Gulf Coast that were destroyed during the recent hurricanes. This project will produce the very first Habitat for Humanity homes - dubbed "houses in a box" - that will arrive in the region over the next few months. As part of this initiative, WMG artists and employees will also pitch in to help build Habitat for Humanity homes in Burbank, CA.
Stevie Nicks will help build homes and perform on the Today Show at Humanity Plaza on September 28. On September 30, Yolanda Adams and New Orleans natives World Leader Pretend-who were evacuated from the Gulf Coast area because of Hurricane Katrina-will perform at 8:30am on the Today Show. Other WMG artists performing and participating in the building effort include T.I., Trey Songz, Twista and Sean Paul.
Additionally, there will be special performances on Humanity Plaza at noon everyday next week from the following WMG artists:
Monday, September 26 - Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Tuesday, September 27 - John Stevens.
Wednesday, September 28 - The Films.
Thursday, September 29 - World Leader Pretend.
Friday, September 30 - John Butler Trio.
