Elmira (WENY) - Musicians are coming together to "stop the violence". The charity concert is raising money for kids in the Elmira community. More than 25 Poets, Rappers, Bands, Gospel Singers, and motivational speakers are working to put on quite a show tomorrow afternoon at the Clemens Center in Elmira. Chris Cade, a manger of one of the rap groups says after a number of violent events in the community, organizers say they want to use the power of music to help "Stop The Violence" in Elmira and get the city back to when it was safe.
“Although we did have some violence and things of that nature, we didn't have all the stabbing and shooting, it seems to be running wild and the community is sick of it and they wanted to do something about it,” says Cade.
The show starts at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at the Clemens Center. Half of the proceeds go directly to helping youth programs in Elmira.
