PRNewsfoto/Playing for Change FoundationDoobie Brothers members Tom Johnston, Patrick Simmons and John McFee will headline a special charity concert called We Are One that’s scheduled to take place October 3 at the Mayan Theater in Los Angles.

The event celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Playing for Change Foundation, an organization that raises money for music education programs around the world.

Playing for Change is a multimedia company that has produced the “Songs Around the World” series of videos that brings together artists from various countries to perform well-known tunes as a way to promote global unity through music. The latest video in the series, which will premiere on October 3, will be a rendition of The Doobie Brothers’ “Listen to the Music” that features members of the group along with musicians from 12 different countries.

Other artists who will perform at the We Are One concert include Little Feat‘s Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett; The Playing for Change Band, an outfit featuring 10 musicians from 10 different countries; ex-War harmonica player Lee Oskar; journeyman R&B session drummer James Gadson; and more.

Tickets for the show will go on sale this Friday, August 25, at 10 a.m. PT. VIP packages will be available offering a meet-and-greet with the Doobie Brothers members.

All proceeds raised by the concert will go toward the Playing for Change Foundation’s efforts to provide free music education and other educational and life-enhancement services to children in a variety of countries.
