*Legendary singer-songwriter Charles Wright will be among a plethora of artists who will perform in a benefit concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Sept. 26, from 2:pm till 9: pm.

This concert is for Aids Walk California at Griffith Park, a charity stroll for victims of the disease.

Wright will perform “Protect Yourself,” a song patterned after his multi-platinum classic, “Express Yourself,” encouraging the public to take all precautions to avoid the spread of this dreadful disease.

This performance is in keeping with Wright’s upcoming album, That Funky Thang, a richly ornamented disc containing enough funk for everyone and a few well-orchestrated change-of-pace tracks. The first single, “Going To The Party,” will catch you by surprise — a thumping, knocking throwback to the time when funk ruled the airwaves.
