A who's who of Seattle musical icons will perform on June 10 to benefit COVID-19 relief organizations all around Washington State. Here's the list:

  • Pearl Jam
  • Brandi Carlile
  • Dave Matthews
  • Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie
  • Macklemore
  • Mary Lambert
  • Pete Carroll
  • Russell Wilson
  • Ciara
  • Joel McHale
  • Allen Stone
  • Sir Mix-A-Lot
  • The Black Tones

The event is spearheaded by All In WA, whose mission, according to their website, is ambitious: 

All In WA is a coordinated statewide relief effort powered by a coalition of public officials, companies, philanthropic leaders, community foundations, United Way organizations, community leaders, frontline nonprofits, and individuals. These groups are coming together to provide immediate critical and emergency support for workers and families most affected across Washington State, and to mobilize committed community and philanthropic groups to go All In for WA.

Amazon is underwriting the production, which will stream, and air on KING 5 and KONG at 7pm, and then be available on Amazon Prime after it airs.

I'll pledge $100 if Russell Wilson and Ciara sing "You're the One That I Want," the classic Olivia Newton-John/John Travolta duet from Grease.
