Lenny Kravitz promotes Gulf Aid Concert (Video)

If you can get your mind off his sexiness, then this Lenny Kravitz video is great for promoting this Sunday's Gulf Aid Concert. Or maybe it's because Kravitz is so sexy, this video is great for promoting this Sunday's Gulf Aid Concert.
Organizers of this Sunday's Gulf Aid benefit concert at Mardi Gras World River City have released the full schedule. Acts will appear on two stages at the site near the Uptown end of Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the "Wetlands Indoor Stage" and the "Coastal Outdoor Stage."

Lenny Kravitz and John Legend close out the Wetlands Stage, preceded by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and special guests rapper Mos Def and trumpeter Terence Blanchard. (story)
The Times Picayune also reports that "Gulf Aid concert beneficiaries haven't been chosen."
Wondering where the proceeds from your $50 ticket to the Gulf Aid benefit show will go?

Unfortunately, the answer isn't crystal-clear, but organizers promise the money will go where it's needed -- in particular, to people who have been directly impacted by the spill.

Planning for the Sunday concert has been a whirlwind, to the point where the beneficiaries have yet to be chosen, organizers said. But the founders of the nonprofit Gulf Relief Foundation, all New Orleans businessmen, have laid out specific criteria for how the proceeds from each ticket sold will be distributed.
I won't be able to attend, but I hope they get the money worked out so the right people get the help they need.
