This is Tidal’s third annual benefit concert which is set to take place in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on October 17th hosted by the Voice of NY, Angie Martinez. All proceeds will go to organizations that support those affected by the recent horrific natural disasters including, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria, and the numerous earthquakes that has hit Mexico.
