Concert for Bangladesh

Posted by Artster63

Today is Bloggers Unite for Hunger and Hope Day. There are so many great organizations that are striving for the worldwide focus of helping those who are starving, homeless and in the end dieing without the cure for many diseases. Just Google or use your preferred search engine and search for "World Hunger". I came up with 8.6 million results. Too many to pick one organization's site and focus on that one. Instead we're going to bring notice to the overall cause by sharing some music from one of the most famous concerts to help those who were displaced and dieing of hunger at the time.

The Concert For Bangladesh was the event title for two benefit concerts organized by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar, held at noon and at 7:00 p.m. on August 1, 1971, playing to a total of 40,000 people at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Organized for the relief of refugees from East Pakistan (now independent Bangladesh) after the 1970 Bhola cyclone and during the 1971 Bangladesh atrocities and Bangladesh Liberation War, the event was the first benefit concert of this magnitude in world history.- from Wikipedia
