Orlando Massacre Benefit Event

By Charlotte Robinson, July 28, 2016
There will be a benefit concert to support Equality Florida & The GLBT Community Center of Central Florida on Sunday July 31st at New York’s famed Webster Hall, 125 East 11th Street in the Marlin Room at 8P. Hamilton’s Daniel J. Watts (HBO’s “Vinyl,” Motown the Musical) & Watts Words Productions in association with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS presents Daniel J. Watts' THE JAM: LOVE TERRORISTS A Benefit for Orlando. Watts a poet, performer & activist stated, “In light of the recent events, most notably the horrendous mass shooting at Pulse night club in Orlando that rocked the world last month, we need to galvanize the masses to speak openly, honestly, & sincerely about our fears & differences so that ultimately we can come together as a society. I aim to do that with this original THE JAM: LOVE TERRORISTS. It is paramount that we support each other & use our talents to the betterment of humanity.” A play-on-words, THE JAM pays homage to Watts’ great-grandmother who, after making jam from scratch, would share with others what she was unable to consume herself. THE JAM is Watts’ continuation of that legacy featuring his original spoken word, often set to music & or dance. THE JAM: Love Terrorists is a veritable call to arms, demanding any and all to terrorize with love. The final lines of the title poem read: Life is a blessing and then you die. What better way to die than from loving to death? Love is a weapon of mass construction. Use it at your leisure. These are our demands.
