FREE "Kem Live @ Mack & Third" Concert & Food Drive on 8/26 to benefit Metro Detroit Charities

'Mack & Third LIVE' in Detroit – the FREE Day Long Concert & Food Drive to Benefit the Homeless!

Motown Recording Artist KEM is proud to present the third "Mack & Third LIVE: A Call to Service" event, a day-long FREE concert & food drive to benefit the homeless, that will take place Sunday, August 26, 2012 at Detroit's Cass Park.

In 2009, KEM, who still makes Detroit his home, hosted his first "Mack & Third" event which was named for the area where many of Detroit's homeless citizens reside.  The 2009 event served more than 500 of Detroit's homeless citizens a meal, collected over 40,000 canned goods and 26,000-plus people enjoyed the free concert.

By sharing his gift of music, KEM hopes to bring attention to the plight of the homeless and to motivate the community to get involved with giving and volunteerism.

Recoding artist Kem is a Detroit native
"Mack & Third is about giving back," said KEM. "I've been fortunate to overcome many obstacles including being addicted and homeless. If it weren't for organizations like the Detroit Rescue Mission and the NSO, I wouldn't be where I am today. I want to encourage others in their current situations by offering something tangible like a meal, along with the hope that things can get better. By sharing my music with a free concert, I also hope to inspire others to give back."

The 2012 event will be held on August 26, and will feature: 'A Meal & A Message' from KEM - specifically for homeless citizens; several food & merchandise vendors; free health screenings; and five hours of live concert entertainment that will include a performance by Grammy nominated Artist KEM.

All canned goods, merchandise, beverage & other financial profits from the event will be donated to organizations that assist Metro Detroit's homeless community.

Fans who cannot come out in person can follow the 2012 event interactively at on Facebook and on Twitter at (@MackAndThird).
