Taylor Hicks to Perform at Bama Rising Concert
Country music stars will convene in Birmingham to support those affected by the powerful tornadoes that recently tore through the south. Bama Rising is a June 14 benefit concert organized by music supergroup Alabama on behalf of the state of Alabama.
A number of well known artists have generously donated their time and talent to the event, including Alabama native Taylor Hicks. While the majority of tickets to the event were sold soon after posting, some VIP tickets remain. For those who are unable to attend, but would like to support recovery efforts, donations are also accepted here: http://bit.ly/lDNXmn
For the artists who make their home in Alabama, the tornado aftermath is both real and personal. At a May 20 concert, Taylor Hicks briefly discussed the storms’ impact and dedicated a song to his home state.
We hope that those who can will give generously to relief efforts. Governor Robert Bentley has declared Alabama a Level 1 disaster area, with damage comparable to post Katrina Louisiana and the World Trade Center after September 11.
