Roberta Flack, David Sanborn for One World Concert
|Sep 11 2012|
Billed as a "historic celebration of peace, music and common ground," the One World Concert is set to take place on October 9 at Syracuse University's Carrier Dome. The concert is scheduled to follow a talk by the Dalai Lama at the University. The all-star lineup for the show includes Roberta Flack, David Sanborn, host band Don Was and his All-Star Band, Dave Matthews, Phillip Phillips, Cyndi Lauper, Bebe Winans, Angelique Kidjo and David Crosby, among others. Whoopi Goldberg will be the emcee for the evening, while Ann Curry from NBC News will be a special guest. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to international relief efforts and to fund a new scholarship named for Bassel Al Shahade, a Syracuse University graduate student killed this year in Syria while filming a documentary about the violence in his homeland.
