Crimestoppers uses money and educational program to help solve crimes and curb violence. Now the group is hoping a little star power will help further the cause.
“Do something for your community. Do something for where you live,” New Orleans’ own Dr. John says in a video statement announcing an upcoming concert.
Dr. John will join another successful New Orleans musician, Bobby Rush, for a benefit concert at Generations Hall on September 11th. The two will be performing a new song they’ve recorded together called Another Murder In New Orleans.
“The money is going directly back into our crime fighting programs,” said Crimestoppers local president Darlene Cusanza.
“This is a great idea,” Rush says in the same video statement as Dr. John.
“Enough is enough,” Dr. John says at the end of the video.
Tickets for the concert start at $50. You can order online — or download the song — by logging on to http://www.crimestoppersgno.org.
