Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit True Skool, whose mission is to use urban arts as a tool to engage youth in social justice and humanities education, and community service and civic engagement.

The musicians for the performance are:

Olen Franklin – Drums
Afton Johnson – Bass
Quinten Farr – Piano/Keys
B-Free – Flute
Jay Anderson – Sax

The MC’s will be Klassik, Mike Regal, and Ar Wesley.
