"Welcome! A Fundraising Concert for the ACLU" is finally here. The event, organized by Zedd, will be held at the Staples Center, and hosted by actor/rocker/whiny baby Jared Leto and Ebro of HOT97 and Beats 1 Radio.
Born in Russia and raised in Germany, Zedd sympathizes with the struggle of being an immigrant in the United States these days, especially after Donald Trump's two attempts at an executive order focused on preventing Muslims from half-a-dozen nations from entering this country. The benefit concert will include artists like Miguel, Tinashe, Skrillex, and more. All of the proceeds will go to the American Civil Liberties Union.
Ultimately, Zedd wants people from all walks of life to come together and have a good time. “Overall, I don’t want it to be a full on political event,” he said, per People. “I want this to be a concert and I want everybody who goes there to enjoy their time. This is more supposed to be a message that all these artists stand by something, and I’m hoping this will mean something to the big platform we have and the responsibility that we, as artists, have with our following.”
