Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Pretoria - South African musicians are donating their time and talent to help Haitians in need at the Making A Difference 4 Haiti Benefit Concert in March.

Spearheaded by radio presenter Doug Anderson, musician Lionel Bastos, and Madelaine Steyn, the M.A.D. 4 Haiti concert will feature a selection of the country's premier artists in a bid to raise funds for the devastated Caribbean nation, which is still reeling from the 12 January earthquake that killed an estimated 230 000 people.

Artists like PJ Powers, Denim, Tasha Baxter, Little Sister, and former Isidingo star Emmanuel Castis will perform at Carnival City on 21 March.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be paid into a trust that will go towards disaster relief in Haiti.
