The Fillmore Miami Beach will have a wide range of music on Thursday, from The Beach Boys to ex-Foreigner lead singer Lou Gramm to the queen of disco divas, Gloria Gaynor.
But this fun will be for a serious and good cause – to benefit those trying to find a cure for brain cancer.
The show, which benefits Voices Against Brain Cancer, will also feature the Osmond Brothers. All of the acts were affected by brain cancer in one form or another – Gramm and Wayne Osmond both survived it themselves; Gaynor’s brother-in-law survived it; and founding Beach Boy Carl Wilson died from the illness in 1998.
The show will also pay tribute to musicians who died from brain cancer, including George Harrison, Celia Cruz and Bob Marley. They will also honor individuals who have had major impacts around brain cancer, including Fantasma Productions founder Jon Stoll, who died of brain cancer in 2007.
