(AllHipHop News) For the third straight year, the Tidal entertainment platform is hosting a benefit concert in New York City. Veteran radio personality Angie Martinez is once again set to host the “TIDAL X: BROOKLYN” event scheduled for October 17 at the Barclays Center.
The purpose of the 2017 show is to raise awareness and funds for charities that support relief and recovery efforts for those affected by the devastating natural disasters Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Maria, and the earthquakes in Mexico.
All of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to organizations such as Global Giving, All Hands Volunteers, Kids in Need Foundation, Direct Relief, One America Appeal, Greater Houston Community Foundation, American Civil Liberties Union, Miami Community Foundation, and more.
Fans around the world will also be able to live stream the event on Tidal and give donations during the broadcast. Since 2015, TIDAL X benefit concerts have raised more than $3 million for social justice and education non-profits.
