Melodies for a Miracle: A Benefit Concert for Dre Peace

  • This event has passed.

Join hosts Paisha Thomas, Jamalia Jackson and Talisha Holmes along with a full stage of musicians, poets and artists to celebrate and raise funds on behalf of friend and fellow musician, Dre Peace.

A favorite on Natalie’s stages and in the Columbus music community, Dre Peace is in kidney failure and facing life altering changes and extraordinary medical expenses. In 2020, Dre was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia – a rare and serious condition where the body stops producing red blood cells, making him more prone to illness. He’s been hospitalized multiple times since and is now on dialysis and in dire need of a new kidney (blood type A+). 100% of the proceeds of this show will go to Dre for mounting medical bills and living expenses while hospitalized.

Dre Peace made his live debut in church choir at age 5. After landing a manager, he traveled the country as a singer, performing in every state except Alaska and Hawaii. At age 10, he signed with an agency, which led to a contract with Disney and an appearance on Broadway, where he played young Simba in a production of “The Lion King” at New Amsterdam Theatre. Over the years, he’s performed in front of a range of dignitaries, including Senators and former presidents. He has also performed as a part of the dynamic duo known as The Tryangles for about 10 years, before recently embarking upon his highly anticipated solo career. Dre performs regularly around Columbus with the Liquid Crystal Project and his own band Wierfield Place.
