Crow Headlines Tribute Concert
Sheryl Crow, 38, will headline a tribute concert Friday, reports the Associated Press, in honor of the late Missouri Gov. Mel Carnahan, who died in a plane crash Oct. 16 along with his son and a campaign adviser. Crow is a Missouri native whose father, attorney Wendell Crow, went to law school with Carnahan. The Grammy-winning singer, who had appeared at fund-raisers for Carnahan's U.S. Senate campaign against Republican incumbent John Ashcroft, plans to invite other artists to the $25 show set for Friday evening at the Pageant club in University City, a suburb of St. Louis. Artists have not been announced but Crow has a good track record when it comes to including big names at her shows. Her 1999 concert in Central Park included performances by Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and the Dixie Chicks. Proceeds from Friday's tribute show will benefit the Missouri Children's Trust Fund, a foundation dedicated to preventing child abuse.
