Marcus Goldhaber

Critically acclaimed jazz-pop singer-songwriter MARCUS GOLDHABER has decided to dedicate his performance tonight at the Metropolitan Room in New York City to raising funds and collecting non-perishables for the American Red Cross to help his fellow New Yorkers and the rest of the tri-state area victimized by Hurricane Sandy.

The "wonderfully imaginative" (JazzTimes) artist, whose acclaimed new CD of all original standards, ALMOST LOVE, is getting radio airplay in a number of major markets around the country, including WBAI in New York, is donating a portion of proceeds from ticket sales and all CD sales at the event to the American Red Cross. He also will be collecting non-perishables: coats, gloves, scarfs, toothbrushes/toothpaste, canned food, plastic bins, backpacks, batteries, flashlights, and the like.

"After a crisis, our immediate response is crucial,," says Goldhaber, whose show, "When You're Smiling: The Songs of 1928," will salute such songwriters as Fats Waller, Richard Rogers and Larry Shay. "But it is equally if not more important to sustain our relief efforts in the weeks and months that follow.We can't afford to let the news cycle dictate what is worthy of our attention, especially when it comes to taking care of those in need."
