Crystle Lightning and Red Cloud, known together as Lightning Cloud, will host Indigenous Angels 2—a benefit concert supporting, and in solidarity with, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.
LightningCloud continue to support the Indigenous community through their music and their activism. In late November, they are throwing the second in a series of art, music and cultural events to benefit good causes.
The first Indigenous Angels show, held in late August directed proceeds to children fleeing violence in Central America, and all the proceeds from Indigenous Angels 2, which will include both a concert and art auction, will go to supporting Stolen Sisters.
Indigenous Angels 2 will feature a huge lineup of musicians, visual artists and DJs lending their talents to support the cause, including the legendary Rass Kass, Savage Family, Quese IMC, Kemo the Blaxican, MC Imprint, Neil, The Crux, First Nation Syndicate, and many more. For visual art, they've lined up contributions from Bunky Echo-Hawk, VOTAN of NSRGNTS, Steven Paul Judd, Melanie Cervantes and a long list of others.
As an added bonus this time around, though, Red Cloud will be flexing his lyrical prowess on a whole other level. During the show, he will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Longest Freestyle Rap. What's the current record? Oh, you know, just a modest 17 HOURS.
17 hours of straight rapping! And RedCloud is confident he can best that, with no problems. He's been practicing. And he plans to "honour every single missing and murdered Indigenous woman by name" while he does it. Now that's how you break a rap world record. Check out the Kickstarter campaign for more info and to support the cause.
Indigenous Angels 2 will be held November 29, 2014 at The Airliner in Los Angeles. Check TeamLightningCloud for more info.
