From the organizer

In the Name of Love, Oakland’s Annual Musical Tribute to Dr. King, is proud to present "Songs of Change" highlighting five outstanding vocalists including Nicolas Bearde, Kim Nalley, Tiffany Austin, Amikaelyla Gaston, and Jessica Lá Rel with Tammy Hall on piano, Marcus Shelby on bass, Allison Miller on drums, Terrence Brewer on guitar and Adam Theis on horns. The powerful 65-voice Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir and the 200-voice Living Jazz Children’s Project will also perform. The Oakland Citizen Humanitarian Award will be presented to an outstanding Oakland citizen working tirelessly to make a difference.

Our 16th Annual Tribute, which will support the Living Jazz Children’s Project (a free music education project for Oakland public elementary schools) promises to be a profound celebration of civil rights and an amazing evening of music.
