  • Kanye, Common, Musiq Unite To Fight Homelessness

    The New Life Project Inaugural Concert, featuring Kanye West, Common, Musiq and The X-ecutioners, is scheduled to kick off on November 5th at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York.

    The concert, sponsored by AOL and Hot 97, will celebrate the launch of The New Life Project, an organization whose goal is to end homelessness in the United States.

    The project’s conception goes back to early 2000 when attorney Michael Fox met Billy Rorie, a 60-year-old homeless man, on the streets of New York.

    As they developed a friendship, Rorie revealed that he had written poems about his experience as a homeless man for over 15 years.

    Fox then became dedicated to raise consciousness of homelessness in America, by turning Rorie’s poems into songs.

    When Fox was riding the subway a few weeks later, he met Corey Glover, lead singer of the Grammy award-winning band Living Colour.

    Inspired by the project, Glover recorded a song entitled “From Dusk Till Dawn,” about the struggles of surviving the streets during that time.

    For the concert, the artists will create and perform original songs based on the poems and stories of people who, like Rorie, faced the realities of homelessness.

    The New Life Project’s mission is to distribute the funds from the concert to service providers and advocacy groups that are most effective at reducing and eventually eliminating the problem of homelessness.

    Less than a generation ago, homelessness was not rampant in America, but according to statistics, one in every 100 Americans now experience homelessness annually and a total of three to four million people over the course of a year.

    Celebrities, music and entertainment executives are expected to attend the concert as a show of support.

    Billy Crystal, Larry David, Al Green, Q Tip and Kanye West are among the renowned honorary board members.

    Tickets are available at all ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.com.
