Appearing at the Aug. 29 benefit concert “New Orleans: Rebuilding the Soul of America…One Year Later” is Grammy Award-winning artist Stevie Wonder, whose latest album, A Time 2 Love, features his hit single “Shelter in the Rain, “ which he produced last fall and dedicated to New Orleans. Marsalis narrates “Shelter in the Rain” for the blind in the song’s music video.

The Rebuilding the Soul of America concert also has tapped Earth, Wind and Fire, touring this summer to promote the band’s 23rd career album, Illumination, and New Orleans-native and Grammy-award winner Dr. John.” The concert also showcases the talent of three of Gospel music’s hottest artists: Grammy Award-winning Gospel legend Yolanda Adams, Grammy Award-winning Gospel crossover artist Kirk Franklin and Houston native and Grammy Award-nominee Kim Burrell. The Wynton Marsalis Septet and local talent also are on the roster to perform.
