Baltimore ACTS—a campaign to activate Baltimore citizens and businesses to serve critical causes—is putting on a gala concert celebration to benefit organizations supporting Haiti's recovery. "Rock to Rebuild" will be hosted by the siblings of Wyclef Jean, Melky and Fael, and will take place February 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
In addition, the evening will feature performances by R&B vocalist Mario, pop-rocker Ryan Cabrera, R&B vocalist Mya, acoustic guitarist Adam Day, and TLC member T-Boz. They will share the stage with the Morgan State University Choir and Baltimore's own Afro-jazz ensemble The ARKJammers.
The event will also feature multimedia tribute to local organizations helping Haiti's recovery, such as the USNS Comfort hospital ship, University of Maryland Shock Trauma, and Johns Hopkins institutions.
Most importantly, event proceeds will benefit Partners in Health, Architecture for Humanity, Baltimore-based Catholic Relief Services, and Melky Jean’s Carma Foundation, all of which are on the ground in Haiti and are committed to the country’s long-term well-being.
In a press release, Baltimore ACTS co-founder Paul Wolman said: “'Rock to Rebuild’ will celebrate Baltimore’s phenomenal support for the cause by bringing together performers whose vibrant music expresses our hopes for the people of Haiti."
