May 21, 2021 — Iconic Jazz and R&B talent Rachelle Ferrell – who Quincy Jones describes as one of the best voices of an era – will be celebrated on her 60th birthday on May 21st 8p.m. EDT by friends and fans the world over with a star-studded virtual tribute: Peace On Earth – Part 1. Rachelle’s team has decided to use the occasion to also shine a light on the work of the Jazz Foundation of America which advocates for the wellbeing of artists – the often unacknowledged healers of our society.
Peace On Earth – Part 1, titled after Rachelle’s moving composition, is a benefit concert dedicated to the movement of music that unites the masses, and will be hosted by acclaimed TV and radio veteran, Angela Stribling. Performers slated to pay tribute to the smooth, six-octave range singer, songwriter and musician (who gave us hits like “Nothing Has Ever Has Ever Felt Like This,” “Welcome To My Love” and “I Forgive You”) include Stevie Wonder, Kenny Lattimore, Byron Miller, Robert Glasper, Lalah Hathaway, T.C. Carson, Rashada Dawan, Kenny Wesley, Ashley Jayy with special appearances from Quincy Jones, Tyler Perry, Ledisi, Roberta Flack, Danny Glover, Lisa Fischer, Jill Scott, Billy Porter and more.
Artists, like Rachelle, all over the world aspire to use their art to touch lives. In light of the global pandemic, where artists have not been touring for over a year, let’s show Rachelle what her music means to us. Whether it’s $5 or $5000, let’s join together and give her the greatest pay for a gig she has ever had. All monies raised for this event go to Rachelle’s BPGE (Best Paid Gig Ever) Fund and to the JFA’s Musicians’ Emergency Fund. All donations are tax-deductible. Watch, donate, and share, but most importantly, come together, join the celebration and spread love.
