GrassROOTS Benefit Party: Black Thought, Kindred The Family Soul, Freeway, Chill Moody, STA and More @ Sigma Sound.

February 17, 2013

BlackThought04Tariq Trotter, aka Black Thought of The Roots, headlined a night of Philly talent at Sigma Sound as a benefit for his charity, GrassROOTS Community Foundation.

Malene Younglao, Dice Raw, Chill Moody, Suzann Christine, Beano and STS performed. Kindred The Family Soul and Freeway made surprise appearances, blowing away the crowd. Marsha Ambrosius was scheduled to perform but she had to travel to Arkansas where she received a Black History Month living legend award from Walmart.

Mayor Michael Nutter stopped by and spoke before running off to New Jersey where he saw Mumford & Sons.

All of this was an effort to raise money for GrassROOTS, which helps fund comunity-based programs that are geared toward girls and young women.
