A new block party will spotlight established and emerging local music at The Heidelberg Project in Detroit’s McDougall-Hunt community on Aug 26.
The inaugural Detroit LIVE will feature performances by hip-hop artist Clear Soul Forces; DJ, producer and historian John Collins (Underground Resistance); rapper, DJ and visual artist Sheefy McFly; hip-hop artist Rah the Son and six other local acts.
Sound will be provided by the Audio Rescue Team. Detroit LIVE also will feature open mic sessions for other interested artists to showcase their talent.
Donna Kassab, POWER Entertainment owner and Detroit LIVE creator, has joined forces with Jenenne Whitfield, CEO of The Heidelberg Project, to host the free event near the city’s iconic outdoor art installation from noon to 8 p.m. at 3600 Heidelberg Street.
“The Heidelberg Project is one of the most visited cultural destinations in Detroit, so we wanted to bring a lot of people together around art to build a sense of community,” Kassab said. “Detroit LIVE is all about the spirit of collaboration through arts and entertainment.”
