Brother Ali, Paris Bennett Join Tornado Benefit

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hip-hop artist Brother Ali, The New Standards and “American Idol” finalist Paris Bennett are among artists joining a benefit concert for victims of the North Minneapolis tornado.

Other artists added to the lineup for the June 12 concert include Bennett’s mother, former Sounds of Blackness singer Jamecia Bennett; guitarist Dean Magraw; singer Prudence Johnson; and rocker Brian Leighton.

Organizers of “Northside: A Twin Cities Community Benefit” hope to raise $100,000 for people whose homes and livelihoods were destroyed by the May 22 tornado. Five-hundred tickets will be held for northside residents affected by the storm.

The concert will be held at The State Theatre in downtown Minneapolis. Tickets go on sale Friday and range from $26.50 to $101.50. Some VIP seats are available for $251.50.

    I’ve been sending my phones to this site for 3 months now and they pay the most. I’ve sent them 9 phones over the last couple of months and I get a check a few days later. They are the best trade-in website in my opinion.
