Lenny Kravitz and Wyclef Jean have been tapped to headline a benefit concert at Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena on July 14, a show being held as part of the fourth annual Zo’s Summer Groove.
The Summer Groove charity event is being spearheaded by Miami Heat Center Alonzo Mourning and will also include an auction dinner hosted by Rosie O’Donnell at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Miami on July 15, as well as an all-star basketball game at AmericanAirlines Arena on July 16.
Among the NBA players expected to come out for the b-ball exhibition include Ray Allen, Vince Carter, Kevin Garnett, and Allen Iverson.
Proceeds from the 2000 edition of Zo’s Summer Groove will be donated to the Children’s Home Society of Florida, the largest statewide non-profit organization serving youths in Florida, and 100 Black Men of South Florida, a group that provides mentoring, education, and economic development to young people.
Friday night’s concert will be one
of a handful Kravitz has lined up for the next few weeks. On July 27, Kravitz will join Lit for a performance at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles, and on July 28 the singer-songwriter is scheduled to play The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.
As for Wyclef, he’s just issued a video for “It Doesn’t Matter,” a new track from his upcoming album, “The Ecleftic: II Sides Of The Story,” currently due out on August 22.
