Benefitting The Stephen Lewis Foundation, which disperses funds to grassroots organizations in Africa fighting the war on HIV and AIDS, and with a powerful line-up featuring Alicia Keys, K’NAAN, Holly Cole and Angelique Kidjo, the Hope Rising concert on May 3rd will be a beautiful event and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Jian Ghomeshi, of CBC’s ‘Q’ will host the intimate evening alongside CTV’s Marci len and actress Gloria Reuben.

Globe and Mail roundtable: Philanthropy and Hope will invite 300 guests to attend a pre-show discussion about how philanthropy can have a powerful impact on peoples’ lives.

Just thinking about Alicia Keys in the intimate Sony Centre gives us shivers and knowing that those soundwaves will travel across the world, to help desperate communities in need, makes this incredible event a no-brainer.
