LOS ANGELES, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, November 15, 2007, Artists for a New South Africa (ANSA) will host "Shaking The Blues," a star-studded benefit, at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. The evening combines the power of music and activism to shake off our blues -- from the personal to the global -- and make a difference in the world. The event will feature blues-influenced musical artists as well as a multi-cultural array of renowned entertainers who are donating their time and talents to the fight against HIV/AIDS in the US and Africa.

The event begins with a pre-show cocktail party for major donors at 6 PM. Shaking The Blues performances start at 7:45, immediately followed by a VIP after-party. Those confirmed to appear include Erykah Badu, Nikka Costa, Keb' Mo', Taj Mahal Trio, and The Roots, with Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson serving as the event's musical director. Additional highlights include appearances by George Lopez, Jurnee Smollett, Blair Underwood, and other special guest stars soon to be announced.
