Local artists, organizations to host virtual concert to encourage voter registration

The concert celebrates the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Activists in Huntsville are mobilizing folks to register to vote, and they're using music to do it.

Jordan '#ChillCity' Moore, a music artist and local activist, is partnering with the League of Women Voters of Tennessee Valley to host a live virtual concert on Moore's Facebook and Instagram pages.

It's called 'From #ChillCity' With Love'. Acts will include spoken word, and artists from several music genres.

Supporters will also answer voting questions from viewers. The virtual event is scheduled for August 3rd at 7 p.m. 

Moore says this year's election is critical.

"We really want to eliminate as many excuses as possible as to where people feel like they don't have the right information or they feel that their rights, they don't have certain rights anymore if they've been incarcerated. So, we just want to create those resources and offer the education through music," says Moore.
