“Le Jazz Noir”



Demand was so great for “Le Jazz Noir,” billed as a Creole night of wine, Southern bites, and jazz, that it morphed from a one-evening event into the March 25–26 preview of a 12-song concert Alexandre plans to mount this fall as a benefit for homeless gay kids in his homeland of Haiti

“More than $35,000 was raised,” says Al Amado, a founding board member of Homeless Gay Kids-Houston (HGK-H). “Without support from people like Pierre and Sean pitching in, we couldn’t open the drop-in center. Our goal is to not accept any government funds at first, because there would be a lot of strings attached. We decided to raise money as quickly and directly as possible to meet this immediate need by asking everybody in the community to reach into their pockets to fund it.”  Read the article in OutSmart Magazine.
