AceShowbiz - Tidal has officially announced the lineup for "Tidal X: Brooklyn" which will raise funds for disaster relief and recovery organizations in the devastating aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Among the confirmed performers are Jennifer Lopez and Jay-Z.
The concert will be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on October 17. Other stars who will take part in the benefit concert include DJ Khaled, Kaskade, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Fat Joe, Remy Ma, Daddy Yankee, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, Vic Mensa, Fifth Harmony, Joey Bada$$, Willow Smith, Belly, Iggy Azalea and Jessie Reyez among others.
Previously, Us Weekly reported that Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles would headline the concert. However, a rep for Beyonce quickly denied the report, telling Rolling Stone, "This is false."
Organizations slated to receive funds from the proceeds from ticket sales include The Empire State Relief and Recovery Effort for Puerto Rico, Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union and Miami Community Foundation. The event will also benefit those affected by the earthquake in Mexico, which has killed more than 300 people to date.
Ticket can be purchased via Tidal. The benefit concert can also be streamed online through Tidal's website.
In 2016, the annual benefit concert raised money to support education for New York City children with Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill and Common among the headliners. In 2015, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Prince and Usher helped raise money for social injustice-focused nonprofit organizations at the show. According to Tidal, these events raised more than $3 million in total.
