Nkeki Obi-Melekwe, current lead of Tina—The Tina Turner Musical, Grammy winner Jennifer Nettles, and Grammy winner and Tony nominee Sara Bareilles will headline the 2nd Annual International Women’s Day Benefit Concert, to be held March 8 at The Town Hall in New York City. 

Proceeds from the event will support Girls With Impact, a non-profit that trains over 1 million under-resourced young women through its business and leadership academy. 

“My musical, led by the glorious Nkeki, is a celebration of women at the top of their game, onstage and off," says rock icon Tina Turner on her show's involvement with the concert. "I always had to fend for myself to survive and overcome adversity. Working against the odds and succeeding is where I find pride and joy. 

“This musical is my story, but it was created for the stage by the strength of women, including our playwright, director, and producer. Girls With Impact is empowering girls like me to forge their own path. That is the power of this program and why I am proud for my musical to support it. We need our girls center stage.”

In addition to performing at the concert, Bareilles and Nettles will each be making 500 Girls With Impact Scholarships possible in their home regions of Eureka, California and South Georgia, respectively.

The event is presented by SheaMoisture and produced by Live Nation along with Girls With Impact.
