Catholic musicians of Miami to hold benefit concert for flood victims of Haiti

.- The organizations Musicians to the Rescue, which brings together dozens of Catholic musicians, will hold a benefit concert on November 5 in order to raise funds to help the victims of Hurricane Jeanne in Haiti. In a press release, the organization announced the November 5 concert, the fourth such event sponsored by Musicians to the Rescue, would feature performances by singers and musicians from southern Florida in “an evening of prayer and solidarity for those in Haiti affected by the recent storm which later on became Hurricane Jeanne.”

All of the funds raised will be sent to Haiti via the Archdiocese of Miami’s “Love in Action” ministry.

Among those performing will be Cristy Arias, Jorge Enrique del Rivero, Julio Torres, Nana Angarita, Amanecer Hispano, Carlos La Salvia, Carmen de Jesus Escandon, Claribel Mercier, Creation, Aquarela, Orlando Ponce, Mary Veira, Siervos de Cristo Vivo and Yeshica Yanes, among others.
The concerts organized by Musicians to the Rescue take place on short notice in order to provide spiritual and economic support to those most in need.  The first such concert took place in March, 2001, for the victims of the earthquakes in El Salvador.

The concert on November 5 will take place at St. Michael’s Church in Miami.  More information can be found at http://www.musicosalrescate.com
