(AllHipHop News) The third annual Pretty Lou Birthday Charity Concert will take place today (April 16) inside New York City's Irving Plaza. The event will stream live at 8 pm ET on Tidal.
All proceeds from the show will be donated to the New York Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and Eleanor & Lou Gehrig ALS Center for Leukemia and ALS Research. Heavy Hitters and Terror Squad affiliate Luis "Pretty Lou" Ortega was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia which elevated to LGL Leukemia.
“I’ve been blessed to beat this disease and be given the chance to use my platform to give back so others have the chance to beat it as well,” says Pretty Lou about the success of his Campath treatment. “It’s amazing to have all the performers, Tidal, and so many other support the cause and help us find a cure for Leukemia and ALS.”
Fat Joe, Remy Ma, The Lox, Ghostface, Raekwon, Jim Jones, Lil Tjay, Casanova, G4 Boyz, Tru Life, Pardison Fontaine, Melii, and more are part of the Pretty Lou Birthday Charity Concert lineup. Terror Squad front-man Fat Joe states, "Pretty Lou is a true warrior, he is my hero! Together we will fight against cancer."
