(AllHipHop News) Some of the biggest names in music are hitting the stage at the Barclays Center tonight (October 15) in Brooklyn.
Alicia Keys, Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, T.I., Cipha Sounds, Robin Thicke, DNCE, and more artists are taking part in the TIDAL X: 1015 charity concert livestreaming via the Tidal entertainment platform.
Famed radio personality Angie Martinez will serve as the host for the event.
“People have these platforms to use their amazing voices to inspire people all the time or create good music that provokes things,” Martinez told AllHipHop.com. “All of that’s cool, but ultimately if you can use your voice to change people’s lives, that’s what it’s all about.”
All of the ticket sales from TIDAL X: 1015 will benefit the Robin Hood organization and Tidal-supported nonprofits dedicated to improving local, national, and international education.
During the broadcast, fans from around the world can also donate money to help fund education initiatives.
“Supporting the community and having a positive impact is a Tidal tenet and mission,” stated Dania Diaz, VP of Philanthropy for Roc Nation. “We are honored to partner with Robin Hood for TIDAL X: 1015 around this year’s current theme, education. We know that education can advance communities and can be the most powerful tool for change. Robin Hood has helped transform communities in positive ways by supporting education programs that generate meaningful results.”
Both Tidal members and non-members can live stream TIDAL X: 1015 beginning at 7 pm ET.
