Promotional video for the “We Are Kind” concert to be held in Vientiane, Laos
Native New Jersey guitarist and singer songwriter Keith Kenny has been chosen to headline a benefit concert in the Southeast Asian nation of Laos to raise money for victims of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO).
The event is called “We Are Kind” and will be held on November 11, 2013 in Vientiane, the capital of Laos, and will feature several well-known Lao rock and dance performers with Keith Kenny closing the evening.
Benefit organizer, Phongsavath Souliyalat (Pong), became a fan of Keith’s music while working with different charity organizations in Laos. Pong is a 20 year-old Lao UXO victim who lost both hands and eyesight when a tennis ball sized bomb exploded in his hands only four years ago. He is now a spokesperson for the COPE Center which provides prosthetics, rehabilitation and support for other victims of UXO and is involved in raising awareness across the nation.
Keith is currently in the midst of his Big Red Suitcase Tour, which includes performances at over 30 cities across the U.S. He has made some quick changes to his tour schedule to accommodate for the 8,000 mile journey. Upon returning from Southeast Asia, Keith will resume his National U.S. Tour from New Jersey to California.
