Sheila E. Benefit Concert

Purple Philanthropy Sheila E. Benefit Concert will kick off a season of fundraising to continue to support organizations that make space for youth to create and innovate musically, artistically and athletically.  The kick-off Sheila E. Benefit Concert will be held on October 23rd at 7:30pm at Orchestra Hall.

In addition to performances from Sheila E. and legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo, the concert will highlight youth performers from Minnesota.  Orchestra Hall will be filled with an electrifying, high energy show from Sheila E. and her amazing band performing her hits that include “A Love Bizarre”, “The Glamorous Life” and her newest single “Girl Meets Boy”, which was inspired by the tremendous loss felt after the passing of her longtime collaborator and former fiancé Prince telling the story of the first time they met.

All proceeds from the kick-off Sheila E. Benefit Concert will be donated to the Purple Philanthropy fund administered by Twin Cities Mobile Jazz Project. Organizations that Prince supported in the past will be able to apply for grant funding to honor his legacy by continuing the programs Prince knew would make a difference in transforming lives of youth living in poverty.

Prince’s humanitarianism centered around his love and compassion for all people. He often used his music to transcend peace and unite people. It is not surprising that Prince gave anonymously to disadvantaged youth around the world. What is surprising is the level of philanthropic work that was directly connected to transforming the lives of young people in his childhood community of North Minneapolis.

Prince did not need approval or accolades. He gave from his big musician heart anonymously and generously. It is the goal of Purple Philanthropy to learn more about these organizations and how their work impacts our community. Purple Philanthropy pays tribute to Prince's humanitarianism and preserves his philanthropic legacy with this kick-off benefit concert at Orchestra Hall on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 7:30pm.
