MONTGOMERY, AL – Raycom Media will present Louisiana Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Relief on Labor Day, September 5, 2016, from 7-9 PM (CT). Randy Jackson and Harry Connick Jr have agreed to co-host the show that will benefit victims of recent South Louisiana floods. Both stars are Louisiana natives.
“Saddened by the devastating tragedies that keep affecting my Louisiana,” said Randy Jackson. “I want to help raise awareness and restore hope to people that are hurting in the place that I will always call home.” Jackson was born in Baton Rouge.
“So sorry that my home state is undergoing such hardship once again,” stated Harry Connick Jr. “Seems like just yesterday that Katrina left a path of destruction. I hope that this benefit concert brings much needed attention to the good people of Louisiana.”
More than a dozen well-known artists will play in the concert, including New Orleans-based Better Than Ezra. Sonny Landreth, Chris Thomas King, MacKenzie Bourg, Luther Kent and Rockin’ Dopsie have also joined the cause. A complete lineup will be available in the coming days. Raycom Media’s Tupelo-Honey Raycom will produce the show, and Johnny Palazzotto, a fixture of the Baton Rouge music scene, will serve as music director. The show will be broadcast from Baton Rouge’s River Center Theater and will benefit the American Red Cross’s Louisiana Flood Relief fund.
