Mary J. Blige and Sean Paul's Aussie Concert Turns Into Flood Fundraiser


Mary J. Blige and Sean Paul's Aussie Concert Turns Into Flood Fundraiser


Event bosses have also pledged 10 per cent of proceeds from other Ragamuffin shows in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide to disaster funds.

Organizers of a series of shows in Australia featuring Mary J. Blige, Sean Paul and Maxi Priest have vowed to donate proceeds to a relief fund for victims of the country's devastating floods. The state of Queensland was plunged into a state of emergency this month as heavy rain caused massive flooding throughout the region - at least 25 people have died and thousands of residents have been forced to flee their homes. The floodwaters have now also affected the state of Victoria.

Blige and Priest are among the stars due to perform at Brisbane's Raggamuffin music festival on January 30, and organizers have now renamed the gig Reggae For Recovery - Flood Relief Benefit Concert. They've promised to donate money from ticket sales to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal.

Event bosses have also pledged 10 per cent of proceeds from other Ragamuffin shows in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide to disaster funds. Promoter Andrew McManus says, "Let's hope we can raise a substantial amount of money to ease some of the pain and to aid in the rebuilding of Queensland."
