WAKA FLOCKA FLAME JOINS FORCES TO STOP SENSELESS SHOOTING IN CHICAGO
WITH WALLACE GATOR BRADLEY AND THE UNITED IN PEACE, INC.
Waka Flocka seeks change with urban Chicago youth
New York, - May 15, 2013 - Triple platinum artist Waka Flocka Flame amalgamates with Wallace Gator Bradley and his United In Peace, INC. to host the anti-violence concert in Chicago. The anti-violence concert will be held the first week of June, at an undisclosed venue. The United In Peace INC’s concert purpose is to help spread the message about the senseless shootings, and murders taken place in Chicago.
Waka Flocka like many other recording artists has chosen to be vocal about stopping the violence in Chicago. “Senseless acts of violence is happening all over the world but it starts with us acknowledging the acts know. Chicago is the first but not the last for me” said Waka Flocka. Despite the negativity surrounding Waka Flocka’s participation in such a cause, he remains humble and continue to interact with his fans.
Wallace Gator Bradley states, "To GOD be the GLORY, for touching Waka's heart and allowing him to reach out and working with me (Wallace Gator Bradley, President) and Noble - Ameer Ali, Executive Director of United In Peace, Inc, in our efforts to turn the tide on Senseless Shootings and Killing across America in general but in the African-American communities in particular, especially Chicago."
All proceeds from the anti- violence concert will be given to the United In Peace, INC.
