Mexican pop music megastars Mana and Alejandro Fernandez — two acts whose combined worldwide album sales clock in at well over 50 million — are joining forces with promoter Live Nation to aid Pajaro Valley flood vicitms.
Both artists will be donating a portion of their upcoming Bay Area shows to Community Bridges, a Santa Cruz County nonprofit established in 1977 that works to provide food, healthcare and other areas of support to local families.
“At the heart of Mana is the belief that our music can be a vehicle for social good,” the band’s lead vocalist Fher Olvera said in a press release. He added that Pajaro Valley is home to thousands of Latino farmworkers. “When we heard about the devastating storms and saw our people in Pajaro suffering, we knew we had to help. We encourage our fans to help in any way they can.”
Fans can help out buying tickets to see the Mana concert on March 17 at the SAP Center in San Jose and Oakland Arena on March 18 as well as the Fernandez show on Sept. 9 also at SAP Center.
“My heart breaks thinking of the people of Pajaro who are displaced by these storms,” says Fernández. “I’m honored that my music and concerts can be a catalyst to bring comfort and aid to this hardworking Latino community and I hope others will join us in helping too.”
