Who says rock stars are just a bunch of overrated, narcissistic false idols worshipped by the lost? Never judge a blunt knife by its jagged edge, as it has gone through it all to the point of breaking.
To prove this philosophy, rock legends Datuk Ramli Sarip, Datuk M. Nasir, Datuk Hattan, Awie and Ella will be holding a charity concert this Feb 22 at Dewan Merdeka, Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) to raise funds in assisting flood victims in the East coast.
Rockers are softies inside,too.
Aptly named “Konsert Doa Langit Dan Bumi”, the fundraising show will also feature renowned musicians Man Kidal, Aji Samin, Tom Anuar and Fauzie Zain.
â€œAs human beings, we must help one another in times of need. As artistes, we must use our God-given talents to do our bit for charity,â€ Ramli says at the concertâ€™s press conference yesterday.
The concert, a joint project by Rasamusic, AmBank Group and PWTC, is Ramliâ€™s brainchild.
Tickets are priced at RM153 each. To purchase, visit www.ilassotickets.com or call the hotline at 03-7957 6088.
