Anderson .Paak announces “Fighting Chance” concerts to benefit immigrants and refugees


ABC/Randy HolmesAnderson .Paak is performing benefit concerts in San Francisco, New York and Atlanta in support of The International Rescue Committee, which assists refugees and immigrants.

The three concert series, named, “Fighting Chance,” kicks off November 13 at August Hall in Frisco, followed by shows November 15 at Variety in the A-T-L, and November 17 at Brooklyn Steel in New York City.

“As someone who’s struggled with homelessness, who not too long ago had no job or place to call home, I know the importance of being given a fighting chance,” says the Grammy winner in a statement. “Music was my fighting chance.  Now, I’m thankful to team up with Modelo to give those in need a shot at proving what they’re made of.” 

.Paak was homeless in 2011 with his wife, Jae Lin, and their newborn son, before releasing his first album, Venice, in 2014.

The International Rescue Committee provides clean water, shelter, health care, education and empowerment support to refugees and displaced people around the world. 

Tickets for the concerts are now available on the Modelo USA website.  You can also win a trip for two to New York City to see Anderson’s performance on November 17.

Paak’s latest single, “Make It Better,” from his third studio album, Ventura, features Motown legend Smokey Robinson.
