Esperanza Spalding & More Join Ed Sheeran For 'Give A Home' Global Concert Event

Musical artists from around the world including GRAMMY Award winners Esperanza Spalding, Jesse & Joy and Moby have just joined an acclaimed line-up to perform exclusive and intimate shows on September 20, 2017 as part of the global concert series, Give a Home, presented by Amnesty International and Sofar Sounds.

New acts announced today include BØRNS, Laura Mvula, Moby, Ryan Cabrera, The Mowgli's and Stanaj, all playing shows in Los Angeles, with Bokanté, Jasmine Thompson and Kamau set to perform in New York City.

These new acts join an international lineup of artists: Ed Sheeran in Washington D.C., Hozier in Ireland, Ludovico Einaudi in Italy, Mashrou' Leila in Lebanon, and many more. The full list of performers is available on www.sofarsounds.com/giveahome, where fans can enter to win tickets for their local show.

Give a Home aims to unite people in showing solidarity with those forced to flee their homes and raise awareness of solutions to the refugee crisis. At over 300 shows across 60 countries, music fans will host intimate gigs in their own homes with some of the world's biggest music stars, refugee artists, and activists.

The shows are in support of Amnesty International's I Welcome refugee campaign, which mobilizes public pressure on governments to welcome refugees. Amnesty International's research shows that 4 in 5 people around the world are open to welcoming refugees, yet governments are failing to do their part.

Music fans have until September 10th to enter for a chance to attend the exclusive gigs taking place in their city.
