JoJo and more artists are coming together to support youth experiencing homelessness. The “Standing Together” benefit concert for My Friend’s Place, an organization that works to aid this underserved community, is set to stream on Sunday, Aug. 9, with the GRAMMY-winning singer among the lineup of performers.

Providing assistance, shelter and education for unhoused young people in Los Angeles since 1988, this year, My Friend’s Place’s annual Ending Youth Homelessness Gala, which was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, has been replaced by the virtual My Friend’s Place Summer Festival, kicking off with this concert on Sunday.

“Closer” singer Mario will also perform, in addition to appearances by NBA star Chris Paul and more.
