Usher's Project Restart



Usher announced Thursday he will headline a benefit concert, Project Restart, in Atlanta to aid those affected by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita

Beyond his musical career and busy personal life, Grammy Award winning superstar Usher does care about his country, more the people. To bring to life his concern, he announced Thursday he will headline 'Project Restart,' a benefit concert for the victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Says Usher, "When I thought about what I could do to help, I decided that I wanted to do something direct and personal for the evacuees." In the benefit concert, to be held October 9 in Atlanta, GA at Philips Arena, the R&B singer will perform several songs with some of his celebrity friends to make special guest appearances. Who are they? It will shortly confirm.

Moreover, Usher also is inviting 5000 Katrina and Rita evacuees who were relocated to Georgia to attend the concert for free. Remaining tickets for the concert will go on sale Friday at 10:00 AM. All proceeds will benefit the Project Restart Objective, which is to provide a temporary solution to the homelessness crisis that arose due to the tragedy.
