DAVID RUDDER JOINS THE I AM CARIBBEAN HURRICANE RELIEF CONCERT
David Rudder has joined the I Am Caribbean Live Aid Project All Star Cast in support of the Regional Hurricane Relief Drive.
The highly anticipated I Am Live Aid Concert is set to be held on Sunday October 29, 2017 from 4p.m. at the newly refurbished Garfield Sobers Gymnasium in Wildey, Barbados.
Coming four weeks after the initially advertised September date, the organisers have promised a fantastic showcase of local and regional talent on one fantastic stage for charity.
According to one of the organisers of the Relief Drive programme, ‘this is not just another fundraising drive.’ ‘What I, the artistes and the other organisers of this project have come together to produce, is a long-term fundraising drive to respond to the tragedies that occur in the region and to raise an understanding that in dire times such as these, we as a Caribbean are each other’s brothers and sisters keeper and to this end we are the first responders when disaster strikes.’ Mr. Newton himself recently visited Dominica and reports ‘the pictures we have seen cannot tell the actual story of how much more help is needed to rebuild.’ ‘The recovery is underway as the Dominican people are resourceful and resilient but water, food, building supplies are still in short supply, neighbours are helping each other, the government’s recovery plan is very much in action, but rations are limited still.’ ‘We hope that with the Benefit Concert, we can raise awareness, care packages and funds to help communities rebuild and families reconnect, helping them all regain some normalcy in the shortest time possible.’
Benefit supporters can look forward to performances from Dominica’s songbird Michelle Henderson and Barbuda’s Caribana Soca Monarch Splash, both who though severely affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, have committed to attend in thanks and support of their fellow artistes and to thank us for this assistance. The Benefit will be powered with performances from Jamaica’s Freddie McGregor and Queen Ifrica, Martinique’s Sael, Road March Queen Michelle ‘Big Red’ King from Guyana, Skinny Fabulous and Dynamite representing St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Antigua’s Drastic and Supa Dymond and from Barbados Monarchs RPB and Lil Rick, Queen Alison Hinds TC, Tamara Marshall, Biggie Irie, Blood, Buggy Nhakente, Kirk Brown, Marzville, Dancing Africa, Allison Norville, Neesha Woodz and De Warrior to name just a few from this all-star lineup for a Philanthropic Cause.
