Sheryl Crow to perform at Focus for Change benefit dinner

HollywoodNews.com: Music legend and human rights activist Peter Gabriel will host the 6th Annual Focus for Change benefit dinner and concert for WITNESS, the international human rights organization that will include performances by Grammy Award-winner Sheryl Crow and reggae legend Jimmy Cliff.

The event will showcase WITNESS’ innovative use of video and storytelling to end human rights violations. Co-founded in 1992 by Gabriel, WITNESS has trained and supported thousands of human rights defenders in more than 80 countries to use video in their campaigns for change. Video has been used by WITNESS partners to corroborate allegations of human rights violations; as evidence in courts; to promote grassroots education and mobilization; as a resource for news broadcasts; and as a deterrent to further abuse.

“Video testimony ensures that the suffering of thousands of people all over the world cannot be denied or forgotten. Those voices can be amplified and heard in the places of power and courts of justice,” said Gabriel of the organization’s impact.

The event will take place on Thursday, December 2nd at Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
