Contemporary Motown star Kem’s Mack & Third Live: A Call to Service event will conclude with a headline performance by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. The concert is free and includes a food drive aiming to help the homeless. It all happens August 26 at Detroit’s Cass Park.
“We are so honored that Maze featuring Frankie Beverly will be joining us at this year’s Mack & Third event,” said KEM. “Frankie Beverly is a musical icon, and we’re happy to have the ability to provide a free day of festivities and exceptional entertainment that everybody can enjoy, as we raise funds and collect food donations for Detroit’s homeless community.”
“Mack & Third is about giving back,” said KEM. “I’ve been fortunate to overcome many obstacles including being addicted and homeless. If it weren’t for organizations like the Detroit Rescue Mission and the NSO, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I want to encourage others in their current situations by offering something tangible like a meal, along with the hope that things can get better. By sharing my music with a free concert, I also hope to inspire others to give back.”Follow @City_Slang
