Christopher Rodriguez is a 10-year-old boy who was left paralyzed from the waist down after being hit by a stray bullet while attending a piano lesson in Oakland California on January 10th, 2008. Chris and his family face a difficult road ahead, but thanks to some big hearts, Christopher is about to benefit from an amazing event.
On May 25th, 2009, the Narada Michael Walden Foundation will produce a concert at the Louise M Davies Symphony Hall to benefit Christopher.
The concert, which is sure to be a sell out, will feature a performance by Sting. Joining the ex-Police front-man will be Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis of 5th Dimension Fame, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, Earl Klugh, David Grisman, Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, Lisa Fischer, Tevin Campbell, Shanice Wilson, Jeanie Tracy, Ralphe Armstrong, Dale “Satchmo” Powers, the Narada Band, AND an orchestra of students from The San Francisco Conservatory of Music conducted by Michael Morgan of the Oakland East Bay Symphony, along with many other surprise performers.
The Concert will also benefit the work of the Narada Michael Walden Foundation and a portion will go to create a scholarship chair for the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
