MN Voices United brings together the dynamic and unique voices of Twin Cities artists raised in song to support friends and families in the United States impacted by the recent natural disasters. MN Voices United believes that we have a responsibility to and for our fellow man and it is imperative that we do what we can, through the vehicle that we know, music. Throughout time, the arts have held a mirror up to society enabling us to connect with our humanity. We believe in the power of the arts to heal, provide comfort and to lift-up those in need. The proceeds from the concert will support the work of Americares.
Americares is a health-focused relief and development organization that responds to people affected by poverty or disaster with life-changing health programs, medicine and medical supplies. Each year, Americares reaches more than 90 countries and all 50 U.S. States with over $600 million in innovative health programs and quality medical aid. Americares is the world's largest nonprofit provider of donated medicine and medical supplies. For more information, visit americares.org.
Wondering about the Prince connection?
We all know how much Prince championed the local music scene that he helped to create, but not quite as many people know about his humanitarian efforts throughout his entire career. These musicians are (some knowingly, some not) carrying on his legacy of supporting our communities and our local music with an event as extraordinary as this. Also, Dr. Mambo's Combo, one of the featured bands, is one that Prince would sometimes jam with and more often simply support with his presence in the audience when they played at Bunker's on Sunday and Monday nights. (They still do play on those nights, by the way!) Members of Dr. Mambo's Combo rotate musicians (much like Prince did) but often include former members of the New Power Generation, Sonny Thompson and Michael Bland.
