A benefit for freelance journalist and GLOBAL RHYTHM contributor Tom Terrell is scheduled for September 11 at New York City’s Canal Room nightclub. Terrell was recently diagnosed with prostrate cancer and unfortunately that diagnosis has now grown to include cancer in his bones. A longtime New York City and Newark resident, Terrell is currently staying with family in Washington, DC.
The benefit will include performances by Angelique Kidjo, jazzman Kenny Barron, Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation, Meshell Ndegeocello, Nora York, Coati Mundi, Mark Anthony Thompson (Chocolate Genius), guitarist Vernon Reid, soul singer Stephanie McKay and others. The evening begins at 7 p.m. and the price of admission is $20. The Canal Room is located at 285 West Broadway (the cross street is Canal St.) in Manhattan.
