Patti Austin to be Inducted Into Hollywood Bowl’s Hall of Fame
Patti Austin will be inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame along with three other artists—John Legend, Steve Tyler and Joe Perry—in a benefit concert to be held on June 22, 2013 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. The 14th Annual Hall of Fame Concert will benefit the LA Philharmonic’s Education Research Program. It commences in June and will feature the four inductees performing with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra under the baton of conductor Thomas Wilkin.
The Hollywood Bowl is the largest outdoor amphitheater in the United States and is located right in the heart of LA’s Hollywood, California. It has been the venue for many of the world’s finest performances since its inception in 1922. Each year organizers fete musical legends by featuring them in a concert ushering in a new season and inducting the performing artists into the Hall of Fame.
The program will highlight Ms. Austin’s career, from starting her singing career at the age of four to becoming a philanthropist through her Blue Movement (a cause to end domestic violence against women, children and men) and Over My Shoulder Foundation ‘OMSF’ (a non-profit organization that promotes mentoring through music and design).
