Harmony4Kidz is proud to present its second annual New York City “Artists Who Care” benefit concert featuring R&B superstar Ray J and DJ Whutevva from Power 105.1 FM on Sept. 21st at the Highline Ballroom. All proceeds from ticket sales will help a child find shelter immediately.

Harmony4Kidz is committed to transforming the lives of homeless children by providing shelters, educational and developmental programs. The organization specializes in creating musical events to benefit children focusing on giving, peace and sharing through a message of hope. Harmony4Kidz is partnering with others in the music industry to develop creative, fund raising events that will help get homeless children off the streets. The event will be hosted by Power 105.1 FM’s DJ Whutevva and will feature a performance from superstar actor, entertainer and top celebrity, Ray J in addition to an international lineup of upcoming acts: Irena and Bermuda Road, Badi, Bellringer, Raye 6 and Shakti.

The founder of Harmony4Kidz is Irena Makarchuk who is also a singer, songwriter and composer. She will perform her song, “Save The World” which was her inspiration for creating the Harmony4Kidz organization. Irena’s passion for music and her commitment to helping others is a huge part of her life. She came up with the idea for Harmony4Kidz when she was planning another musical event in New York City. She encountered a group of children eager to help her promote the concert and she was shocked to discover that over 200 of the kids were actually homeless. Irena was amazed that in spite of all their problems the kids still had great attitudes and they wanted to be involved with the event and set up booths to sell their artwork. Irena was moved by their strength and courage and the next morning she wrote her song, “Save The World”.

The “Artists Who Care” Benefit will take place on Sept.21st, 2008 7:00 PM at the Highline Ballroom, tickets are available for $25.00 online and $28.00 at the door. During the evening auditions will also be held for the Harmony4Kidz reality TV show. People will also have a chance to submit their artwork, poetry, and music to be considered for publication in the Harmony4Kidz upcoming book and Mix CD. Submissions for any Harmony4Kidz projects will only be accepted at the event.
