LA Artists Unite to Celebrate Human Rights and Promote Local Charity: "With Freedom of Expression Comes a Brighter Future"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - With international headlines laden with war, famine, and issues of corruption, never before has the need for upholding our basic human rights been so critical. On December 10, 2007, International Human Rights Day, critically acclaimed artists will unite to celebrate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the "Freedom of Expression" at Tangier Restaurant in Los Angeles from 8pm to 10 pm. All proceeds will benefit Los Angeles-based charity, Mother's Day Radio.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to unite these brilliant, Los Angeles-based artists to raise awareness of critical human rights," explains event Executive Producer Ashleigh Prince. "Mother's Day Radio has tirelessly worked to bring Freedom of Expression into reality through promoting respectful music. Our goal is to unite our communities to realize the opportunity we have to affect change for our generation and the next through making human rights known and applied."

On December 10th, the 59th Anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, four socially progressive and active bands will unite for the dual cause of shedding light on Human Rights and supporting a worthy community organization. To celebrate the Declaration, specifically Article 19: Freedom of Expression, critically acclaimed Afropolitan fusion band Soulfège, Great American Rock band Aaron Nicholson and the Weathermakers, Jamaican Rap Songstress Nadirah X and Nationally-known Independent Singer/Songwriter Owen Plant will come together for a benefit concert at Tangier Restaurant located at 2138 Hillhurst Ave Los Angeles, CA 90027.

The event will be hosted by actress, model, and active humanitarian Cassandra Hepburn. With a starring role in Quentin Tarrantino's "Hellride," gracing magazine spreads, serving as the ambassador to Youth for Human Rights International, and starting her own charity, Stop Trafficking Now, Cassandra's support of Mother's Day Radio and International Human Rights Day helps further spread the vital message of human rights that has been an intrinsic part of her work.

All proceeds from the concert will benefit Mother's Day Radio (MDR), a community driven initiative focused on promoting respectful music and media representations for women internationally. Mother's Day Radio organizes and implements leadership programs and respectful media programs to help the next generation of women develop with strength and integrity. This initiative furthers the vision of Eleanor Roosevelt who created the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. More info on Mother's Day Radio can be found at
