Tonia Hughes (Northside)
Sarah Renner (Northside)

The concert's organizers have also sent invitations to a list of Minnesota's most famous musicians, including the Purple One (just say yes, Prince).
"It doesn't matter on what side of town you live on, when tragedy strikes, we're all on the same side," notes performer Larry Long. "So let's give it up for the Northside: At this moment of time, it's the Northside in need of relief."
Ticket prices have not been announced as of yet, but the concert's organizers are aiming to raise $100,000 for the North Minneapolis Fund, and the Minneapolis Foundation has already pledged a matching grant of $200,000.
We'll post additional details as soon as we get them.
