Paula Cole, Jimmy Ray, Others Mark Earth Day

With the annual observance of Earth Day coming up April 20, Jimmy Ray and the critically acclaimed new British singer Billie Meyers played this year's first Earth Day concert on Saturday in Houston.

It was the second annual "Earth Day Festival" put on by radio station KRBE which says that at least $15,000 in proceeds will go to Houston's Parks and Recreation Department, and to the local Citizens Environmental Coalition.

On Saturday April 28, Paula Cole and Chantal Kreviazuk will join Abra Moore and Edwin McCain at Boston's fifth annual "Earthfest."

The free outdoor show, sponsored by radio station WBOS, will be at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River.
