Jay J to give a Special Concert on Sept 11th

I love to see artist giving back to their community. The Associated Press reports that rapper Jay-Z is planning for Sept. 11 is a step in the direction that his career — and life — is heading in, he said Monday.

Jay-Z was joined by his wife, singer Beyonce Knowles; Gov. David Paterson; Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta and Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. Jay-Z said he will donate all proceeds from the concert to the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund. Tickets are being sold for $50, and the show is expected to raise $750,000 to $1 million.

Knowing Jay Z, it will be a phenomenal concert. I expect some really special surprises as well. I wish I was back in New York City. I would attend.
