Add to Calendar 15-09-2011 15-09-2011 15 Dailymotion's Music in Motion: Hal Willner's Freedom Rides Project Dailymotion, the world's largest independent web video site, presents "Music in Motion: Hal Willner's Freedom Rides" benefitting the William J. Clinton Foundation. Dailymotion's inaugural "Music in Motion" concert kicks off a series of electrifying musical fundraising events in cities across the U.S. Curated by acclaimed producer Hal Willner, this edition of "Music in Motion" features collaborative performances by music icons and will be streamed on Dailymotion.com with behind-the-scenes interviews, candid moments and more. Dailymotion will also host a charity auction, offering one-of-a-kind memorabilia from the event's legendary performers. The maverick music producer Hal Willner brings his singular genius for curating multi-artist concept shows to the music of the Civil Rights Movement. An all-star cast including many surprise guests joins a mind-blowing band and choir to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Rides, which integrated the interstate bus system and helped bring America's and the world's attention to the deprivations of the segregated South. In what promises to be an unforgettable event, Willner will convene his usual surprising and eclectic array of musicians, actors, and other artists - established and emerging, famous and infamous - to perform songs that inspired, illuminated, and sprang from the tumultuous aftermath of the Movement. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the William J. Clinton Foundation, which President Bill Clinton established with the mission to alleviate poverty, improve global health, strengthen economies, and protect the environment, by fostering partnerships among governments, businesses, nongovernmental organizations, and private citizens — leveraging their expertise, resources, and passions — to turn good intentions into measurable results. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=91690 Highline Ballroom true DD/MM/YYYY
