Virtual Benefit Concert (TONIGHT)

May 27 @ 8 PM ET/5 PM PT


Iconic Jazz and R&B singer, songwriter, and musician Rachelle Ferrell, whom Quincy Jones describes as one of the best voices of an era - will be celebrated on the rebroadcast of her 60th birthday, TONIGHT (May 27) at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT by friends and fans the world over with a star-studded virtual tribute: Peace On Earth - Part 1. 


Ferrell's team chose this occasion to also shine a light on the work of the

Jazz Foundation of America, which advocates for the wellbeing of artists - the often unacknowledged healers of our society - with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the JFA's Musicians' Emergency Fund.


Peace On Earth - Part 1, titled after Rachelle’s moving composition, is a benefit concert dedicated to the movement of music that unites the masses.



The benefit concert is FREE to watch, share, and most importantly, to come together to join in the celebration. This is about giving love and thanks to Rachelle and so many others who get us through our lives with their music. If you can, give some love back by making a donation. They need us now! 


We are halfway to our goal of $100,000!

About The Jazz Foundation


For 32 years, the Jazz Foundation of America (JFA) has been keeping jazz, blues and roots, alive by helping the musicians who have played the soundtrack to our lives. With compassion and discretion, the Jazz Foundation makes it possible to pay someone's rent and keep them from eviction or homelessness when illness, accident, or old age prevents them from working. Our social work services and Musicians' Emergency Fund provide housing assistance, pro bono medical care, disaster relief, and financial support to musicians and their families in times of crisis. During the pandemic, JFA has provided assistance in more than 10,000 cases. Through our Jazz and Blues in the Schools and Gig Fund performance programs, we create purpose and dignified employment for hundreds of musicians every month and bring free concerts to thousands of underserved audience members at public schools, hospitals, nursing homes, museums, parks, libraries and community centers across the country. Whatever the need is, we don't just fix the problem, we heal it with love.
